COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

MSE 501 Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering

Fundamentals of materials, atomic bonding, crystal structures, non-crystalline structures, defects, diffusion, mechanical properties, microstructure, phase diagrams, heat treatment.

MSE 503 Materials Science and Engineering Thermodynamics

Advanced thermodynamic treatment of inorganic materials. Application of the laws of thermodynamics to the chemical behaviour of materials. Multicomponent systems, phase and chemical reactions equilibrium. Thermodynamics of phase transformations. Introduction to the surface thermodynamics.

MSE 510 Scanning Probe and Electron Microscopy

This course covers real-time observations using modern scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy, while also providing information on the required stages and samples. The course begins with introductory material and the basics, before describing advancements and
applications in dynamic transmission electron microscopy and reflection electron microscopy. Some keywords are aspects of electron optics, electron beam generation, electron–specimen interactions, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, field ion microscopy, probe techniques, tunneling microscopy, atomic force microscopy, other scanning probe techniques.

MSE 511 Kinetics

The concept of kinetic. The solution of kinetic data. Chemical kinetic. Rate theories. Diffusion in solids, liquids and gases. Homogenization, carburization, decarburization, solid-gas reactions, oxidation, nitriding, dissolution in solids and liquids, precipitation in solids and liquids and deformation kinetic.

MSE 515 Quantum Mechanics of Materials Science and Engineering

Background for Quantum Mechanics, photoelectric effect and de Broglie waves, The Bohr model and Electron diffraction, Probability and uncertainty, wave functions and the Schrödinger wave equation, potential wells; potential barriers and tunneling, the harmonic oscillator, hydrogen atom, Zeeman effect, electron spin, many electron atoms and the exclusion principle, X-ray spectra.

MSE 516 Nanomaterials and Surface Engineering

MSE 517 Spectroscopic Methods of Materials Characterization

In addition to obtaining materials, identifying physical and chemical properties of materials will provide the most efficient utilization. Different modern techniques have been developed in order to characterize micro and nano sized materials. Teaching the most prominent of these techniques and their applications will help grad students developing their experimental skills. This course presents the physical and chemical characterization of materials by spectroscopic techniques, e.g. UV-vis, IR, Raman, fluorescence, NMR and EPR spectroscopies and also by mass spectrometry.

MSE 518 Electroceramic Materials

MSE 580 Special Topics in Materials Science and Engineering

Directed group study of topics in materials science and engineering.

MSE 598 Research Seminar

A seminar must be given by each student on his/her research area which is graded by academic member of staff. The topic of the seminar can be decided by the student and his/her supervisor.
