Have you ever wondered why ceramics are hard and brittle while metals tend to be ductile? Why some materials conduct heat or electricity while others are insulators? Why adding just a small amount of carbon to iron results in an alloy that is so much stronger than the base metal? In this course, you will learn how a material’s properties are determined by the microstructure of the material, which is in turn determined by composition and the processing that the material has undergone.

Excellent course and this course refreshed my material science topic, thanks to coursera and special thanks to instructor who guided me throughout this course journey.
Course is very good and informative. Nicely presented by resource person and clear explanation of phase transformations and nucleation development.
Thank you very much Professor Thomas H. Sanders, Jr. for providing very good and valuable information . I helps any one who in this field
I wonder I'll ever find a course as organised and resourceful as this one. One of the best courses on the web by one of the best universities in the globe. Thank you G.Tech.
