Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Have gained an in-depth understanding of theoretical and experimental methods in metallurgy within the specific area of topics covered by the project.
  • Have attained an understanding for methods of analysis and experimental methods and their characteristics, applications, and limitations.

Skills

  • Be able to describe and experimentally determine a likely phase and chemical composition for metallic alloys.
  • Be able to demonstrate understanding of microstructure for metals and metal alloys.
  • Be able to devise mechanical or heat treatments for a metal or an alloy, and be able to predict the outcome of applying such a treatment.
  • Be able to give a critical evaluation of the methods applied for determining microstructure, chemical composition or mechanical and other properties.
  • Be able to use correct terminology.
  • Be able to compare theoretical and experimental results.

Competences

  • Be able to set up a realistic hypothesis for the outcome of a process, obtaining a property or the like, within the field of metallurgy.
  • Be able to devise an experimental method to falsify or validate a given hypothesis.
  • Be able to use advanced experimental techniques within the field of metallurgy.
  • Be able to apply the background theory and the insight obtained, in validation of material choice for a given application.

Type of instruction

The module is carried out as group-based problem-oriented project work. The group work is carried out as an independent work process in which the students themselves organize and coordinate their workload in collaboration with a supervisor. The project is carried out in groups with normally no more than 6 members.



Extent and expected workload

Since it is a 15 ECTS course module the expected workload is 450 hours for the student.
