Semester SEM1

Aims and Fit of Module

The module aims to introduce students to the fundamental experimental methods typically encountered in materials science and mechanics. The primary focus of the module is to enable students to understand the practical aspects of different techniques used for material characterization and their mechanical behaviour.

Learning outcomes

A. Apply fundamental techniques used in materials science and mechanics. B. Analyse experimental data and derive information about the structure and behaviour of materials. C. Experimentally determine the properties and relate them to the structure and processing behaviour of materials.

Method of teaching and learning

The module is delivered through formal lectures, tutorial exercises and practical classes.
