Prince George's Community College: EGR 2300: Materials Science for Engineers and Scientists
Introduces the foundations of the chemistry and physics of materials
used in engineering applications. Develops the relationship between the atomic and molecular structure of
materials and the macroscopic properties and performance of engineering material. In particular includes
thorough discussion of the chemical and physical properties of metals, ceramics, polymers, semiconductors,
superconductors, and nanomaterials.
