This course is an advanced level materials engineering course, and builds onto prior engineering materials knowledge. The course design is primarily based on a case study that seeks to consolidate and assess higher-level analytical and critical thinking, but also seeks to introduce professional practice and judgement in applying various materials application methods. The relevant "materials science" content will be inherently explored through the case study, but the main emphasis will be on applications and practice. The objective here in this course is about getting student engineers to "think" rather than just "learn". This approach is demonstrated through systematic exploration, evaluation, synthesis, and application in material selection and failure analysis methods.
