Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course will consist of lectures giving an overview of different techniques to measure, characterize and quantify properties in materials processing. Each lecture will be followed by a seminar where the students present their work consisting of theoretical as well as practical studies.

Intended learning outcomes

After completing the course the student will be able to

- understand and explain the physical mechanisms giving specific prperties to a material
-  describe how to measure, characterize and quantify materials properties such as heat capacity, viscosity, interface energy, density etc
- identify limitations of the different methods

Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

Grading scale

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F


  • LAB1 - Laboratory work, 1,5 hp, betygsskala: P, F
  • SEM1 - Seminar, 1,5 hp, betygsskala: P, F
  • TEN1 - Examination, 3,0 hp, betygsskala: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

Other requirements for final grade

Written exam (TEN1; 1,5hp)
Seminar exercises (SEM1; 3hp)
Lab exercises (LAB1; 1,5hp)

Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination

Ethical approach

  • All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
  • In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
  • In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
