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

Course specific prerequisites

Required is a basic knowledge in materials science and engineering.


Increasing demands on properties like lightweight, high-temperature stability, high load or wear resistance, etc. resulted in the development of a wide range of advanced engineering materials. In the course several of these modern types of materials (nanostructured, cellular, anisotropic, hybridized, graded materials, etc.) will be discussed. Aim is to introduce topics from the research front in the area of materials science and engineering, and to demonstrate how different materials concepts can be used to achieve novel and/or improved materials properties in order to realize new products.


The students should be able to describe the discussed modern types of materials and name which concepts and parameters/features are used for materials design and improvement of properties.


In the course, advanced engineering materials like nanostructured, cellular, textured, (bulk-)amorphous, graded materials, etc. will be discussed using examples from recent developments and ongoing research.

The course content can change slightly from year to year.


The course is devided into lectures and project work (oral presentation and report). Each student has to prepare a presentation on a chosen topic and write a report (topic provided).


Specific literature will be mentioned during the course.
Summaries of the lectures will be provided on the course homepage.


A written exam as well as report and oral presentation of the project work are required for approval.
