Students are taught the basic degradation mechanisms of materials, through the understanding of the physics, chemistry, mechanics of such mechanisms. Mechanical failure mechanisms concentrate on fatigue, and creep. Chemical failure mechanisms emphasize corrosion and oxidation. Physical mechanisms such as diffusion, electromigration, defects and defect migration, surface trapping mechanisms, charge creation and migration are also included.
