Subject Description
In this subject students will explore the interrelationships between materials structure, properties, processing, application and lifecycle. Students will apply materials science and lifecycle analysis to develop solutions to engineering problem that are optimised for sustainability. Students must consider both economic and environmental impact in the identification and selection of appropriate materials in engineering design.

Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Describe the structure, general properties and main applications of metals, polymers, ceramics and composites;
2. Evaluate the main mechanical properties of materials from experimental data;
3. Evaluate the main thermal and electrical properties of materials;
4. Describe the relationships that exist between structure, processing and properties of selected materials; and
5. Solve simple engineering problems related to materials selection, failure analysis and new materials development.
