Course Description:
Materials Technology Department assigned to the subject: Department of Materials Science and Engineering and Chemical Engineering Type: Compulsory ECTS Credits : 6.0 Year : 3 Semester : 2 Coordinating teacher: RUIZ NAVAS, ELISA MARIA Academic Year: ( 2017 / 2018 ) Review date: 29-04-2017 STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO HAVE COMPLETED Materials Science and Engineering COMPETENCES AND SKILLS THAT WILL BE ACQUIRED AND LEARNING RESULTS. Competences: In a generic manner, the student must develop skills and knowledge to be able to manufacture a component for a specific application. In a specific way the student must acquire the knowledge and capacities for materials technology. This implies to acquire the knowledge of the fundamentals of science, technology and chemistry of materials; understand the relation among microstructure, synthesis or manufacturing and the properties of the materials. Besides, during the course, other skills will be promoted: - Ability to analyze and solve complex problems, encouraging skills for searching, understanding and identifying the most relevant information analyzing and interpreting results obtained to take a final decision. - Ability to correlate multidisciplinary knowledge to solve technological problems Learning results: To acquire the knowledge and capacities to be able to apply materials engineering to manufacture components for specific applications. In more detail: - The ability to select a forming process for a particular material, considering the size, shape, properties, number of parts and final application. - The ability to select the proper material for a specific application - The knowledge of the different joining processes, excluding mechanical fastening methods, and to be able to understand the involved chemical and/or metallurgical processes. - The knowledge of failure possibilities linked to in-service behavior, and the capacity for determining the cause of failure. - The knowledge of inspection and testing methods.

Laboratory classes, classes for solving problems in reduced groups; individual tutorship and personal work of the student; oriented to acquire practical knowledge related to subject program. ASSESSMENT SYSTEM The assessment consists of a final test (60% of the final mark) and the continuous evaluation (40%). It is required to have a minimum of 4/10 in the final exam to make possible the continuous evaluation. For the assessment of the course it is mandatory to carry out the laboratory. The continuous assessment consists of: (i) Three individual tests, with a 30% weight; (iii) Laboratory: Execution of four practices. The final lab mark, will consists of solving a questionnaire or test at the beginning of each one of them to check the student knowledge and a final report. Final laboratory weight: 10%. % end-of-term-examination: 60 % of continuous assessment (assigments, laboratory, practicals…): 40 BASIC BIBLIOGRAPHY - J.
