Hello everyone:

Firstly, I would like to warm welcome you to MK-512 course. This course aim to learn of basic concepts relating to corrosion and oxidation, the important of material selective in the corrosion, the role of design and construction in the corrosion, corrosion types and its controls in the metallic materials. I think that our world needs to raise public awareness of corrosion and corrosion control. We will also discuss that how can we control corrosion? Finally, I am usually in my office.  However, if you need further information or help, please feel free to contact with me.

Best wishes,

Welcome to MK-523: Metal Matrix Composite Materials

I strongly believe that the participants of this course is not limited to material or mechanical engineers, undergraduate students in other branches of the engineering can benefit from this course and can obtain a useful introduction to these advanced materials. Since metal matrix composites (MMCs) are increasingly important in many industrial applications, such as aerospace, defence, automotive, electronics or architectural applications. Nowadays, MMCs is widely used to increase the strength of the metal or its alloys. This course aim to learn types, properties, advantage, manufacturing methods, design principles and applications of the MMCs. If you need further information or help, please feel free to contact with me.

Best wishes,
