The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the fundamentals involved in the processing of materials. Various materials processes are used in variety of industries to create and form materials in wide range of applications. There are some commonalities behind all these processes and the aim of the course is to go through the fundamental physics and materials science behind these processes so as to be able to understand, design and predict the outcome of these methods. At the end of this course, students should: (a) Know the fundamentals involved in various materials processing techniques; (b) Be able to design a process depending on requirements and various constraints, like material, temperature, environment, etc.
