Course Objective

In order to reduce the problems experienced in materials and to meet the demands, researchers are working on new material types and applications and presenting new designs. In recent times, most of the researchers have focused their work on the hybrid designs that composite materials and these materials are used together. In order to reduce problems in building materials, newly developed materials will improve their ability to find solutions to possible building material problems learned by graduate students.
