Engineering Materials

Course Code: MECH 112

Academic Year: 2023-2024

This is an introductory course on engineering materials used to design mechanical systems. Manufacturing methods to produce mechanical systems are also considered. Core elements in manufacturing consist of materials, processes and systems. Emphasis in this course is placed on engineering materials such as metals, polymers, ceramics and composites. Topics in engineering materials include material properties, product attributes and property enhancing operations. Property enhancing operations are limited to the heat treatment of metals. The student is expected to follow safe work procedures developed for the lab and all machines used in the lab portion of the course.
