Analytical Methods and Materials Testing

The training course covers the basic principles and utilization of different analytical techniques used in materials testing and characterization. These techniques include optical and scanning electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction, metallography, hardness testing, thermal analysis, and particle size analysis. This training is especially relevant to personnel directly and indirectly involved in materials science and engineering activities (e.g., those in the academe, testing and analytical services, research and development offices, or manufacturing industry)

This training aims to provide you with the basic knowledge on the se of the different analytical techniques in materials testing and characterization. This two-day training will involve lecture, demonstration and some hands-on activities using available equipment. During the hands-on exercises, you will be working in groups and you will be given the chance to do your part in the exercises. Supplies and materials to be used in the experiment will be provided. After completing the training course, you will be given a Certificate of Completion by the University of the Philippines National Engineering Center.
