Aims and objectives
This unit develops students basic understanding of structure and the relationship of engineering materials and manufacturing processes, and emphasises shaping and forming, metrology and the aspect of quality metrology and the aspect of quality.
Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)
On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
1. Analyse the structure and property of engineering materials based on heat treatment (K1, K2, K3, K4, S1, S2)
2. Analyse different joining methods and engineered surfaces using different coating methods (K1, K4, S1, S2, A2)
3. Research the failure of materials by the analysis of known failure case studies (S1, S2, A2)
4. Use a series of materials removal processes and describe how a product is manufactured (K1, K2, K3, S1)
5. Safely conduct experiments, analyse and interpret results and errors, and formulate conclusions (K1, S1, S2, A2)
6. Apply sustainability software to carry out life cycle assessment of a product (K1, K2, K4, K5, K6, S1, S2, A2)
