Fundamentals of Materials Science is the basic course of materials discipline, which mainly research the law of materials components, structures, properties, preparation and their relationship. In this course, some fundamentals scientific theory such as physics，physical chemistry, structure chemistry and inorganic chemistry are used to study the components, structure, properties and preparation of inorganic materials. It is a very important discipline basic course between the basic science and professional skill.
The students could master the relationship of materials components, structure, properties and preparation through learning this course. By the training of scientific thinking methods, students could solve the practical problems of inorganic materials during the preparation, produce and using. It can also improve the ability of analysis and solving problems.
