Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Compare the fundamental differences and general properties of key engineering materials: metals, ceramics, polymers and composites.
02. Describe atomic structure of materials and how it influences the macroscopic properties of materials.
03. Interpret the concepts of stress and strain and the mechanics of the various failure mechanisms in structures.
04. Interpret phase diagrams and the correlation between microstructure and mechanical properties of materials.
05. Differentiate fabrication techniques and processing procedures of engineering materials to achieve the required properties.
