For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.


The aim of the course is to provide basic understanding about mateirals science and technology, in particular the relations between the structure and properties of polymeric materials, metals and ceramics. Also, the aim of the course is to provide current technologies for materials selection, manufacturing and design with polymeric materials.


The goal för the course is to give knowledge in materials science, useful to support udnerstanding of the development of materials during foreseeable future. Also, the goal is to give current engineering knowledge about polymeric materials concerning materials selection, manufacturing techniques and design, and the dependences in-between.


The course starts with basic materials physics, aiming at supporting the understanding of materials engineering. The subject of materials and manufacturing engineering is motivated and presented in general by its role in product development, introduction to engineering materials, typical applications and also materials aspects in environmental considerations. The subject of materials and manufacturing technology for polymeric materials is treated extensively, including an exercise to be performed in groups. The corresponding subject of materials and manufacturing technology for metallic and ceramics materials will be delt with in a following course.

Basic materials physics
Phases, structures and defects
Dislocations and mechanical properties of metallic materials
Corrosion and surface treatment of metals
Structure and properties of polymeric materials

Materials technology
Materials selection in product development
Introduction to and applications of engineering materials
Materials aspects in environmental adaptation

Polymeric materials
Thermal and chemical properties
Mechanical and surface properties
Electrical properties
Rheology, heat conductivity and cross-linking
Manufacturing technology
Joining technology


The course includes about 20 lectures, one exercise in design and three labs (Computer-based lab phase diagrams, Computer-based materials selection CEES and Mechanical properties of polymeric materials).
