Ceramics and Glass Technology Certificate

Last updated 4/7/2014

Certificate Code: 5987

Program Contacts:
Quad-Cities Campus
Adebayo Badmos, 309-796-5280, adebayob@bhc.edu


Students learn about the basic structures of ceramics and that most ceramics are crystalline solids with properties that are related to the ionic or covalent bonds that hold them together. They also learn that glass has different properties than most ceramics due to the amorphous structure of glass. A variety of processes used to manufacture ceramic and glass products are studied with hands-on laboratory experiments.
