Spring Semester 2015

Instructors

The course will be taught as a collaborative effort of about 18 experts from glass companies and universities across the globe. Please see list of instructors for contact information or click on their name in the below lecture table.

Course Overview

Glass and glass-ceramics are widely used in consumer goods as well as advanced high-tech devices. Therefore, one must first make the glass and then make desired items out of glass in suitable size and shape at an acceptable cost. A wide range of glass processing steps have been developed over the period, while research continues for finding new ways of making complex products. There is a lack of resources where one can learn about this very important topic of materials science and engineering in a comprehensive manner. To fill the void, this course intends to give an overview of glass processing methods as practiced today or have promise for the near future.
