Mechanics of materials

George Angelopoulos - Undergraduate - (A-)
Department of Chemical Engineering (DCE) of the Engineering School of the University of Patras, University of Patras

This course aims to study the behavior of deformable structures under the influence of external loads. Divided into two thematic subsections. The Statics and Strength of Materials. STATICS This course is one of the foundations of engineering sciences since studying how they respond structures (institutions) external loadings. STRENGTH OF MATERIALS The strength of materials is the branch of engineering that studies the strength of solids under pressure, the stress distribution in solids, deformities and relations trends - deformations.

Practical Training in Industry

George Angelopoulos - Undergraduate - (A-)
Department of Chemical Engineering (DCE) of the Engineering School of the University of Patras, University of Patras

The Practical Training in Industry aims at enabling initial vocational training of students and at the connection of the Department and business. The institution of Internships is active at the Department of Chemical Engineering since the mid-1980s. Since 1993 is elective.

Materials Science I

George Angelopoulos - Undergraduate - (A-)
Department of Chemical Engineering (DCE) of the Engineering School of the University of Patras, University of Patras

The Materials Science is the discipline that examines materials from the production process to the finished product, is studying the chemical, crystal, molecular and electronic structure (a structure and affects the mechanical, electrical and magnetic properties), watching how they conduct abrasion, corrosion and oxidation, trying to improve it and finally combine or develop materials suitable for each application of the current highly complex technology.
