Comments on the course

Attendance wasn't really mandatory but he doesn't post his notes online. So the only way to get the lecture material is to either attend or get it from someone who attends class. Some aspects of the course were pretty interesting and I enjoyed it. He doesn't give a bunch of homework but he does make sure that he and the TAs are always available to answer your questions.

Course Content

Crystal structures, atomic packing factor, line and plane directions, grains, phase diagrams, stress-strain curves

Comments on the professor

Professor was great! He was really passionate and knew the material thoroughly. He tries to make the class feel like a high school one.

Advice

If you plan on skipping a lot, take a different professor. This professor makes an effort to memorize everyone's names and will randomly call on people during class. He'll even have a 1 on 1 convo with you if you skip enough.

Comments on the course

An alright course, covering some material science and other content which may be of use for some students.

Course Content

An introduction to material science, building from earlier chemistry. Discusses microscopic structure of various materials, even down to the atomic level, as well as some metal alloying and heat-treatment procedures. Also touches on some material properties relevant to Solid Mechanics (EGM 3601) and Mechanics of Materials (EGN 3331).

Comments on the professor

Somewhat disorganized, and prone to long rants about the behavior of a few students, wasting several lectures.
