Materials Science

Quality products require quality materials. Experts trained with a course in material science are prepared to design goods that meet the needs of production processes and consumers.

What is a course in materials science? It is a class offered to engineers and material sciences majors. These courses provide a thorough background on the different materials used to create the goods that are produced in the manufacturing process. A general overview of metals, plastics, polymers, fibers and ceramics is provided. Students may choose to specialize in a particular material or application. Chemical and structural aspects of each material are explored, and students also taught to consider the practical costs associated with each available option.

After finishing a course in materials science, graduates are able to make appropriate decisions regarding material selection for creating specific products. Their understanding of physics, chemistry and mathematics is further enhanced. They can analyze the structural merits and evaluate the cost effectiveness of each option. Students may also find alternatives and are encouraged to seek out cost savings for their employers by substituting appropriately interchangeable goods.

The cost of these programs depends on the institution the student chooses to attend. Those interested should contact the admissions departments of universities under consideration for detailed information on tuition and fees.

Graduates are often prepared for careers in manufacturing as engineers. Those with advanced degrees may find work creating new materials out of existing technologies. Others may be involved in supplier management and work to locate sources of suitable raw goods. Design engineers often consult with these experts to select substances for building new products. It is possible to specialize in a specific industry such as electronics or aerospace, but some prefer to may remain generalists.

Traditional campus classroom courses are available, but international students and working professionals my wish to take advantage of online courses. The flexibility of distance learning is an attractive option for those with scheduling and transportation difficulties. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Campus Full time 4 weeks June 2017 Germany Berlin

Hosted in the fully-equipped laboratory of the 3D Lab of the TU Berlin, this four-week course offers introduction to working with professional 3D printing technologies such as laser sintering with polyamide and powder printing with mineral powder (modified gypsum). [+]

Summer University block 1: June 12th - July 6th, 2017 Course price: 2200 Euros 18 hours of class sessions per week, 5 ECTS credit points Topic: 3D Scanning and Printing Target group Students with an interest in 3D printing, 3D scanning and who want to gain insight into work with professional 3D printing technologies. As this technology covers numerous application areas, this course could be interesting for students from scientific disciplines, engineering, design, fine art or art history. Short Description Hosted in the fully-equipped laboratory of the 3D Lab of the TU Berlin, this four-week course offers introduction to working with professional 3D printing technologies such as laser sintering with polyamide and powder printing with mineral powder (modified gypsum). The course provides an introduction to manufacturing 3D printed objects with the laser sintering system and the powder printer of the 3D Lab, as well as data generation and data preparation for it. Participants will gain basic knowledge of the use of two professional 3D printing technologies, structured light scanners and related software. The course starts with an introduction to the technologies used at the 3D Lab and selected projects from its portfolio, to give participants an impression of the various possible uses of 3D technologies. Ongoing course lectures will be accompanied by detailed practical units focusing on the use of the machines and the preparation of printable objects. Specifically, the practical training will develop student’s skills in the use of structured light scanners, 3D printing technologies, and in meeting the geometrical requirements for successful 3D prints.
