ENEG12005 Materials Science and Engineering

Course details

This course introduces students to the properties of engineering materials and their classification, and selection for given applications. They explain relationships between material properties and the internal structures of materials, and explain processes modify these structures to improve material properties. Students should be able to analyse failures of materials, explain failure mechanisms and determine measures to protect against such failures. They describe and choose standard methods of testing for given situations, indicate expected results and limitations of results. Students conduct, analyse, interpret, draw conclusions from and report on materials tests. They apply information literacy skills to obtain relevant engineering information and identify appropriate standards and practices.
Distance Education (Flex) students will be required to attend a compulsory residential school to promote development of course learning outcomes.
