Course Description

The course deals with different areas of materials (metals, nano-technology, thin films, ceramics and polymers) from chemistry point of view. Basic theories of bonding, structure, physical and chemical properties, with reference to understanding materials, are discussed. Contemporary applications of materials are involved. Teaching will be conducted in two different ways: lecture mode and interactive mode. Lectures will cover the textbook materials, whereas interactive learning will cover additional & supplemental materials from beyond the lecture materials

Course Objectives

Enables the student to use his/her earlier chemistry background to understand materials. The student will be able to comprehend what materials are, how useful in societal demands they are, why research & development focuses on certain compounds, and what is the role of a chemist in developing new materials. Material production, functioning and development are involved.

Intended learning Outcomes and Competences

At the end of this course, the learner is expected to be able to;

  1. Critically search in materials science and technology (critical thinking) 
  2. Independently read about advanced materials (learner-centered approach)
  3. Employ his/her chemistry background in understanding basic theories and properties of materials
  4. Find applications of materials in societal life
  5. Acquire knowledge of designing and using modern devices based on advanced materials
  6. Find future research inroads to solve societal problems using advanced materials (examples of problem-based learning)
