Subject Description
Introduction to engineering materials: definition and description of properties; influence of material properties on engineering design; description of material structures and relationships to properties; production processes for engineering materials; the materials cycle; materials selection. Case studies illustrating the use of metals, ceramics and polymers in engineering applications. Practical classes on measuring mechanical properties and observing mechanical behaviour.

Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Use materials properties data to solve basic engineering design problems.
2. Define the main categories of engineering materials and describe their general properties.
3. Define the main mechanical properties of materials and describe elastic, plastic and viscoelastic mechanical behaviour.
4. Conduct simple tests on material samples and calculate properties from the data obtained.
5. Describe the general relationships between structure, processing and properties of metals, ceramics and polymers.
