The unit introduces civil and mechanical engineering students to the engineering properties of materials and manufacturing processes. It aims to develop a basic understanding of the properties of engineering materials, including metals, metal alloys and non-metallic materials. This unit also aims to provide students with the ability to systematically select materials for given applications.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
