Learn how to become a better leader by understanding modern product management from one of the best MOOC creators, John Johnson. He has educated over 50k learners worldwide.
To realize next-generation devices, novel ceramic materials with ultimate physical and chemical properties are required. For this purpose, a few intrinsic and extrinsic approaches for the development of new functional ceramics are proceeding. This course…
Phase diagrams of binary and multicomponent systems are the basis of modern alloy theory. The ability to use them in solving various practical problems is a necessary part of material scientists training. The skills and knowledge acquired during the cour…
Learn how to model the mechanical properties of honeycombs and foams and to apply the models to material selection in engineering design.
Discover the principles of point defect evolution that explain materials science phenomena.
Discover the principles of Surfaces & Surface-Driven Reactions that explain materials science phenomena.
MIT professor and materials scientist Markus Buehler discusses how scientists can design new proteins that can revolutionize materials engineering through manipulating vibrations that have been changed from matter into sound and from sound back into matt…
This course covers lessons in internal energy enthalpy, crystal geometry and structure, non-crystalline solids, phase diagrams and transformation, plastic deformation, conductors, resistors, superconductors and semiconductors.
The course is intended to make the students and research familiarize with binary and ternary phase diagrams and microstructure of different materials. It is to be noted that microstructure plays a vital role in deciding the properties of the materials. T…
