There are lots of great material on Material Science subject in the internet, buts its always a challenge to figure out a ready list of top books on Material Science that one can refer to immediately. Even though online materials are good, but nothing can beat the depth of coverage that a book can offer. Hence, we researched the list of Material Science books which are used by students worldwide and came up with top 10 Book Recommendations on Material Science subject. These books can be used as a great starting point for anyone studying Material Science and can also be used as a ready reference for Under-Graduate and Post-Graduate programs.
Most of these Material Science books are also in the best-seller lists in Amazon website. We have added a brief description of these best books and have also included direct links to Amazon site (as affiliate). This allows anyone to directly visit the site and order printed copies of these best books.
Here is the full list of best reference books on Material Science.
|1. “Introduction to Material Science for Engineers” by J.F. Shackelford
Book Review: This is a very good textbook in the field of material sciences and engineering and is suitable for the branches of materials science, mechanical, civil and general engineering. The book is also a very good reference book for civil engineers and machine design engineers. The book covers all the physical properties and numerous applications related to engineering materials. The book also guides the students through numerous engineering concepts. There are many PowerPoint slides as well for various topics.
|2. “Materials Science and Engineering: An Introduction” by William D. Callister
Book Review: This book deals with three basic types of materials and they are metals, ceramics and polymers.
