MAT ENG 7110 - Fundamentals of Materials

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2024

This course provides a fundamental understanding of the core area of physical chemistry in materials engineering, based around the theme of systems, states and processes. It also aims to introduce how physical models explain chemical properties and reactivity of materials. Topics covered are chemical thermodynamics and equilibria, and kinetics. Through this course students will learn how matter behaves on atomic and molecular levels, how this behaviour determines the microscopic and macroscopic properties of matter and how chemical reactions take place.
