OBIETTIVI

The aim of the course is to introduce material structures, materials structure-property relationship and some of the most important technological process. Metals, ceramics, polymers and composites will be discussed. Introduction to material reclying methodology will be provided and Life Cycle Analysis techniques will be shortly presented.

The teaching methodology of the course consists of lectures, written exercises and computer exercises. Limited practical experience in laboratory will also be carried out.
