We explore “10 things” that range from the menu of materials available to engineers in their profession to the many mechanical and electrical properties of materials important to their use in various engineering fields. We also discuss the principles behind the manufacturing of those materials. By the end of the course, you will be able to: * Recognize the important aspects of the materials used in modern engineering applications, * Explain the underlying principle of materials science: “structure leads to properties,” * Identify the role of thermally activated processes in many of these important “things” – as illustrated by the Arrhenius relationship. * Relate each of these topics to issues that have arisen (or potentially could arise) in your life and work. If you would like to explore the topic in more depth you may purchase Dr. Shackelford's Textbook: J.F. Shackelford, Introduction to Materials Science for Engineers, Eighth Edition, Pearson Prentice-Hall, Upper Saddle River, NJ, 2015...




This course is good for engineers. It illustrated many fundemental and important concept in materials science. The teacher is great who explain nearly everthings in details with words and experiments.

This course was very useful to remind me the basic concepts of Material Properties and there usage on in modern engineering applications. I learnt the real meaning of the concept “structure leads to properties". All this knowledge acquired will be applicable in my day to day job duties in the automobilistic sector, giving me more base during a technical discussion. I recommend this course for any Product Design Engineer.

This course covers basic topics in materials science. If you want to gain a simple overview of the field of materials science, then you should take this course. If, however, you wish to learn topics in-depth I would not suggest that you start here. Moreover, Dr. Shackelford is a distinguished professor and it was a pleasure learning from him. He formated the course beautifully in a non-traditional manner.

The Course was very well taught and was not a burden on my schedule since I could take an hour or two out of my day and complete the weeks work.

Very much low details and the course instructor has very slow pace when he is teaching on the board that (aaaa,aaaa) is very irritating....

I must thank the coursera platform for the quality of this course available to anyone who wants to improve their knowledge. It is still my wish, one day to be able to have training in institutes like this one with committed teachers who can prepare me for the labor market. It is a pity for me that our universities, here in South America, are still very distant from what science is... but! ...thanks coursera. In case someone reads this message, I hope it is not a machine, that they continue with this work

My Professor, Mr. James Shackelford a Distinguished Professor Emeritus is so easy to elaborate facts and things, he makes understand concepts like explaining to small kids and so it gives a feel of the Gurukul Prampara.

The course is really excellent. it bridges the gap between the facts we left at our textbooks while graduating and our today's state of knowledge, achieved by professional competency.

I shall be thankful to team coursera, UCDavis for such a brilliant course and specially for the faculty.

Prof. Schakelford,

My name is Isabella and I have a degree in Materials Engineering from the Federal University of São Carlos (Ufscar) in Brazil. I really enjoyed reviewing these brief concepts that every industry engineer should be aware of. I currently work at CBMM producing niobium alloys. I would be immensely happy if you answered me to discuss a master's or doctorate in this area. Thank you a lot for the opportunity.

A wonderful course that helped me refresh useful concepts in material science that I've learned a long time ago. It also helped me clarify some fundamentals which I did not have a good understanding before. The course also relatively short and the assignments are easy to finish. I'd definitely recommend the course to anyone interested in understanding some of the most used jargon in mechanical engineering.

創建者 Berfin B


The topics were explained very well in general, and the summary videos reinforced the topics. I think it is a course that every engineer candidate should take. Since I studied especially in the material science department, there was a lot of useful information for me and it made me remember the subjects I learned before. Thank you to everyone who prepared this course.



My major is in Chemistry but I work in thermoelectrics in my masters. So, I wanted to broaden my knowledge in material science. I got the basics from these well-curated lectures and I will add more to this knowledge with my further enthusiasm. Thank you for this opportunity for improving myself and appreciate all the effort that you put into making those lectures.

All tha video contents are straight , crisp and very easy and self explanatory. All videos duration was minimal so that any particiapant do not feel bored during any point of time. Very nice revision of material science subject and all the practical examples provided gives a clear cut picture of all the terms used in material science.

Nice work coursera

This course is a complete package for those who are commoner to materials science and engineering. In this course, we could know the main topic of materials science and engineering. This course include several brief definitions and descriptions about cores of the materials scientific field. Great reminder for those who are actually into the field.

創建者 Sarah D


Provides an in-depth yet practical look at Materials Science from an engineering perspective. I am a chemical engineer by training and this course filled in a lot of the blanks by discussing material types, properties, and behavior. This is a great intermediate level course for any engineer interested in learning more about Materials Science.

got a great knowledge about various materials used in engineering and also phase of elasticity to plasticity tansformation . it was very interesting to learn about phase diagram, iron carbon diagram and ttt diagrams . thankyou sir for giving me great knowledge about materials and hence my knowlede got increased after completing this course

Excellent overview of Materials Science to advanced learners, emphasis on structure-property correlation as the heart of MSE, would benefit from more illustrations using SEM micrographs of steel microstructures, beginner-level learners may benefit from further reading for any questions and unfamiliar terms (or engage in course discussions)



I studied this particular course way back in my college years since I am a Mechanical Engineering student here in the Philippines but I found this way of teaching more informative and conducive for learning even with just a short span of time. Thank you Dr. Shackelford. Thank you, Coursera.

Excellent intro to Materials Science. The course covers the fundamental concepts such as yield stress, tensile strength, ductility and toughness without getting too involved in complex formulas. I have a background in mechanical engineering and found this course to be a good review of materials course I took in University.

創建者 Harendrakumar D


This course is beneficial for beginners, and it inspires the student to explore further the details of the related topics. When I joined the path, I had only basic ideas about bonding only. Now I understand the basics of deformation of metals and particularly the applications of the Arrhenius equation in material science.

I regret and feel very much i why i did not take this course long before. Fantastic and lucid explanation of related concepts. This course had delivered the entire material science in a nutshell. Thanks to Prof. James and other behind the scene engineers who made this course possible.

Best Regards

Lessons were clearly presented, easy to follow, explained in such a way that you don't need much prior knowledge coming in to understand. Quizzes didn't try to trick you, and tested both comprehension of concepts and (mostly) retention of information. With good note-taking, it was a breeze. Would highly recommend!

創建者 Kashif S Q


Thank you sir for teaching in such a different and unique way. The way you teach is indeed very unique and it always kept me attentive during your lecture. Now i have understand all those concepts in a more better way and i am certain that this will help me in my future carrier as a material engineer. Thank you Sir

As a B.Sc. student of Metallurgy and Material Science, I did have a great experience by enrolling for this course because the information was so perfect and without any lack. I honestly can offer other threads students to apply for this course, and you will get all you need about Material Science.

創建者 Gokul S


The course was very good, each topic led seamlessly into the next. The explanations were excellent. If there was any flaw, it was that it was too short. However, the course was everything that was advertised and I truly believe that I refreshed a lot of concepts while learning some new ones.
