Metallurgy and Materials Science

MET 217

Computer Applications in Materials Science (2-2) 3 Cr. Hrs.

Course Description

An experience-oriented course in specialized computer applications for advanced study in experimentation techniques and analysis, metallurgically-based computer aided engineering tools and statistical methods. Topics covered in the course include an introduction to basic statistics, graphics, experimentation, designed experiments, ANOVA and regression analysis and CAE tools including Stecal.
