Graduate Certificate in High Temperature Materials
Materials used in the "hot zones" of propulsion and power generation systems must satisfy stringent demands for integrity and performance. Materials exposed to these extreme environments exhibit continuously evolving microstructures and this must be accounted for during the component design stage of production.
Rensselaer offers a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in High Temperature Materials. The Certificate is designed to provide an understanding of the properties of high temperature alloys and also teaches skills to improve those properties by manipulating the material microstructure through processing.
The Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in High Temperature Materials Technology in Propulsion and Power Generation is awarded on successful completion of three graduate level courses. Academic credit from the following three courses can then be applied toward a Master’s degree.
- MTLE-4260 High Temperature Alloys (Superalloys)
- MTLE-7061 Casting and Joining Processes for Superalloys
- MTLE-6960 High Temperature Coatings Engineering
