The Class of 2018 demonstrated their newly acquired engineering and materials processing skills in Laboratory I by melting, slumping and decorating glass plates to form several small but beautiful consumer products. These two tea lights and a vase were among the productive outcomes of the laboratory course instructed by Professor Riman. This particular laboratory session introduced the students to the glass transition, temperture/time/viscosity relationships, and the application of thermally matched enamel coatings, as well as the methods by which automotive windshields are made.
