Materials Science for Technological Application Specialization


This Specialization will provide you with an introductory knowledge and understanding of key concepts in Materials Science. Periods of our civilization have names associated with materials – stone age, bronze age, iron age, and the silicon age. Materials impact all aspects of your daily life and will continue to do so in the future. The more we understand materials, the more we imagine the future with fantastic devices and advancements enabled by materials. This initial specialization introduces a limited number of material science and engineering concepts. The topics presentations are at the concept level without being marred in heavy mathematics. Participation in each course is best done by initially having a firm sense of what MSE does and its impact on society. Topics in this specialization span from atom bonding and crystal structure to diffusion and phase diagrams. Some of the position titles that may benefit from this course include Materials Engineer, Chemical Engineer, Electrical Engineer, Aerospace Engineer, Materials Quality Control. Others who are want to explore the world of materials will find it helpful.

Learners will complete a project based on industry experiences. This project will serve as a basis for learners to effectively demonstrate the application of material science methodology. The structure of the course and the step-by-step process is designed to ensure learner success.
