MEC301 Materials Technology

In this course, you will learn about the processes involved in engineering the functional properties of materials to fit different applications. Engineers make devices that require the selection of materials fit for specific purposes. These materials are processed by shaping, joining and surface treating; all of which affects the material’s microstructure and final properties. An important role for the engineer is to make meaningful connections between processed materials and its properties and performance in applications. This course is supported by labs and workshops that allow you to apply this knowledge to select materials and asses the required processing
