Engineers are required to work with many different materials in their professional lives. This unit is designed therefore to provide students with the level of knowledge required to understand the science of materials and their diverse role in engineering applications. Materials Technology JEE125 provides a theoretical and practical survey of ferrous metals, polymers and composites, and through these materials the link between structure, processing and properties. Each of the five learning outcomes for this unit are achieved by integrating theory and concepts with laboratory and project work. Emphasis is placed on actual case histories of material performance in practice, and the analysis of the causes of failure. The basic knowledge gained in this unit can be used as a foundation to be built upon in later stages of the Engineering Degree program.

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.
