|Subject Overview:||This subject focuses on advanced materials and their engineering applications. Selected metallic, ceramic and polymer materials and their composites are analysed in the context of particular applications. Wherever possible, the topics will be reinforced by introducing the latest development in research. |
The selected advanced materials may include light alloys, ferrous alloys, superalloys, intermetallic alloys, ultrafine and nano structured alloys, amorphous alloys, metal matrix composites, structural and functional ceramics, and structural and functional polymers.
Students are required to study engineering cases of their own selection by researching literature and/or conducting experiments in laboratory.
|Objectives:||At the conclusion of this subject students should be able to: |
• Apply advanced engineering materials through applications and case studies.
• Describe emerging engineering materials and their potential applications.
• Write a research manuscript in the area of materials engineering.
|Assessment:||Two project reports (50% each) of up to 3,500 words each in addition to supporting material such as figures and tables, to be submitted at the end of the semester. |
|Breadth Options:|| |
This subject is not available as a breadth subject.
