MEGR 7090/8090: Phase Transformation in Solids (2020 Fall)

Prerequisite: Basic concept of thermodynamics, some knowledge of materials

Phase transformation commonly occurs during materials processing and in service. This course lays a foundation for understanding phase transformation in terms of thermodynamics and kinetics, as well as transformation mechanisms down to the atomic scale. Special topics on phase transformation under high speed, pressure, and temperature in the machining process will also be discussed.

The course is offered every fall semester.

MEGR 6166/8166: Mechanical Behavior of Materials (2020 Spring)

Prerequisite: MEGR 2144, MEGR 3161 or equivalent, or consent of the department

This graduate-level course provides an understanding of mechanical behavior from the perspective of material structure in a fundamental manner. It covers the fundamental theory of dislocations, understanding plastic deformation by dislocation, various strengthening mechanisms, high-temperature deformation behavior, toughening mechanism and fracturing behavior.

This course is offered every spring semester.

MEGR 7090/8090: Introduction to Transmission Electron Microscopy (2019 Fall)

Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is an important and powerful tool for microstructural characterization in material science. TEM allows students to understand their materials, in terms of morphology and crystallography from micrometer scale down to atomic scale. Hands-on experience on TEM is provided in this course.

The course is offered every fall semester.
