Materials Science refers to the design and discovery of new materials, particularly solids. The problems that humans are facing nowadays due to the limits of the materials can be helped to solve by Materials Science in the future of technology significantly. This [course_title] will help you understand the fundamental elements thermodynamic functions and laws governing equilibrium-properties, the role of electronic bonding, quantum mechanical descriptions of interacting electrons and atoms etc.


This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.


Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of the assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49.

Having an Official Edukite Certification is a great way to celebrate and share your success. You can:

  • Add the certificate to your CV or resume and brighten up your career
