196 MATERIALS SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING

GENERAL INFORMATION
Materials science and engineering is a multidisciplinary field of science that has very important areas of activity such as producing wide spectrum materials type up to non-metallic materials such polymers, ceramics, semi-conductors and minerals from conventional metals like iron, copper and aluminium as well as devolopment of new products and fabrication techniques and acquire different properties by altering atom and surface structures. Materials engineer is the scientist who have comprehensive knowledge of physical, chemical and mechanical properties of any type of materials further changing materials characteristics by making either atomic or macro structure alterations.

Objective
Training engineers that have powerful practical engineering aspects, capable of scientific studies as well as fulfil expectations of R&D institutions and industry of country and region in the field of materials production with universal technological equipments.

TEACHING & LEARNING METHODS
NameComments
LecturingLecturing is one of the methods that come first, where the teacher is in the center. It is a method where the teacher actively describes topics and the students are passive listeners. With this method, lesson proceeds in the form of report, description and explanation.
DebateDepending on the situation, debate is a tool that allows all students, or a specific portion of the class to participate in the lesson. In this method, members of the group discuss a topic by addressing the various points of view and discuss alternative opinions about problem-solving.
DemonstrationIn this method the teacher demonstrates, an experiment, test, in front of the class. And then assists students to do so too. Students learn not only by just by looking and watching, but also by taking part and participating. This method is usually applied when teaching skills.
PerformanceIn this method, the teacher performs activities such as experiments and demonstrations in front of the class, students try to learn by looking and watching. This method is usually applied where there are limited facilities and in dealing with dangerous experimental situations.
ProjectProject-based learning is a learning way which leads students to deal with interesting problems and to create extraordinary products at the end of this. It allows students to use their creativity and it requires them to look at events perceptively.
Technical TourIs a method that takes learning to the out of the classroom. It is a method that provides students to make direct observations and to gain information by taking them to places, such as factories, museums, libraries, various government agencies, mountains, forests, lakes, parks and gardens.
Testing Means reaching results by using various information with certain mechanisms, which are set up to imitate natural events in artificial environments and to have students take a certain topics and applying them to reach certain aims/objectives. Nature researchers, scientists, and educators
