MAE 324: The Structure and Properties of Engineering Materials
Spring Term 2002

The course is an introduction to the properties of engineering materials. The emphasis is on the correlation between a material's atomic and microscopic structure and the macroscopic properties that it displays. The topic selection is directed towards mechanical and aerospace engineers and satisfies both departmental and PMI requirements.
