Metallurgy and Materials Science - MET 153
3 Credit Hours1 Lecture Hours3 Laboratory Hours
This course provides experience in the use of laboratory equipment and methods for studying and reporting microstructures of ferrous, non-ferrous and specialty materials. Proper operation of equipment and instrumentation for sectioning, mounting, polishing, etching, microscopy and image analysis is emphasized, as are safety, etiquette and communication in the laboratory.
(A requirement that must be completed before taking this course.)
- CAD 103 or may be taken concurrently.
- CIS 120 or may be taken concurrently.
- MET 116 or may be taken concurrently.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- Demonstrate practical metallographic laboratory skills based on standard industry practices.
- Demonstrate metallographic laboratory citizenship skills (safety consciousness, quality focus, teamwork, ethical behavior).
- Demonstrate laboratory notebook and report writing skills.
- Demonstrate the ability to locate and use Safety Data Sheets.
- Demonstrate basic metallographic/materialographic specimen preparation techniques.
- Demonstrate basic microstructural analysis and measurement techniques.
- Prepare microstructures of plain carbon and alloy steels.
- Prepare microstructures of cast iron.
- Prepare microstructures of stainless steel.
- Prepare microstructures of aluminum alloy.
- Prepare microstructures of copper, brass or bronze.
- Prepare microstructures of weldments.
- Demonstrate computerized system for metallographic image capture, retrieval and analysis.
- Design a basic metallographic laboratory.
