MEC3203 Materials Technology
Pre-requisite: MEC1201 or Students must be enrolled in one of the following Programs: GCEN or GDET or METC or GCNS or GDNS or MEPR or MENS
The engineer uses a wide variety of materials from platinum to rocks to construct bridges, automobiles, jet engines, process plants, electronic components, etc. These materials have widely varying properties and consequently it is necessary for the engineer to have a sound working knowledge of the characteristic properties and behaviour during processing/fabrication and in service of the common types of engineering materials. This course extends the basic course "Engineering Materials", to show how the basic principles of materials science are used in the development of contemporary engineering materials used in everyday engineering applications. This knowledge is demonstrated through systematic exploration, evaluation, synthesis, and application in material selection and failure analysis processes of materials.
