Aims and objectives

From 2017 this unit will be known as Engineering Materials with a new code: ENG10002 (from MEE10001) 
This unit of study aims to introduce you to the basics of materials engineering, including their microstructure, properties, structure, failure modes and sustainable use.
Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)
Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
1. Describe the difference in atomic/molecular structure between the major classes of materials that result in different material properties. (K1)
2. Analyse the material response to mechanical and physical stimuli. (K1, S1)
3. Determine mechanical properties of all major classes of materials on the basis of experiment. (K1, S1)
4. Determine physical properties of materials. (K1, S1)
5. Describe the suitability of different methods of strengthening of materials and their potential for material degradation. (K1, S1, A2)
6. Select materials using appropriate methods that consider microstructure, manufacture, performance and sustainability. (K1, S1)
7. Safely execute experiments, formulate conclusions and generate laboratory reports. (K6, S1, A2).
