U of A Courses

MSE 488/588 - Scanning Electron Microscopy - (3) I Theoretical and practical aspects of electron-beam microanalysis. Lab emphasizes projects and independent research using scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive X-ray analysis. 2R, 3L. 3ES. Field Trips. P, consult department before enrolling. (Identical with ENGR 488). May be convened with MSE 588.

MSE 480/580 - Experimental Method for Microstructural Analysis - An introduction, through a combination of lectures and laboratory experiences, to both established and new techniques for microstructural characterization of materials.

Learning Objectives: From the course, you should be able to:

  • Understand principles of various materials characterization techniques
  • Compare advantages and disadvantages of each technique to the relevant ones
  • Identify the most suitable technique to provide the information you need for your samples
  • Recognize practical consideration and limitations of each technique
  • Improve your technical communication skills and team work skills

MSE 489/589 - Transmission Electron Microscopy - An introduction, through a combination of lectures and laboratory experiences, to both established and new techniques for transmission electron microscopy.
