Outline and Purpose of the Course The various technologies used in the field of material science serve as bases for so-called high technologies, and, in turn, the high technologies develop material science. These relate to each other very closely and contribute to the development of modern industries. In this class, recent progresses in material science are briefly introduced, along with selected current topics on new biomaterials, nuclear engineering materials, new metal materials and natural raw materials. The methods of material analysis and future developments in material science are also discussed.
Course Goals To expand your field of vision for material science and to acquire accomplishments to identify the importance of technologies through the classes for developments in material science.
