Unit Code: MCD517

Unit Name: Applications of Material Science

Description: This unit aims to make students understand the nature and properties of materials commonly used in Mechanical equipment, installation and maintenance. This unit shall deal with identification and application of relevant engineering materials; the structure of solid states; non-ferrous metals and its alloys; the metallurgy of iron and carbon; composite materials; wood; polymers; mechanical testing; and methods of working and forming metals.

Learning Target Outcomes: On successful completion of this course, you should be able to: 1. Apply knowledge of natural science respectively to wide laboratory procedures and practices. 2. Identifies appropriate available testing methodologies. 3. Safely implements laboratory test and measurement procedures. 4. Understands the range of material testing equipment available, selects a suitable tool and explains the selection including consideration of the limitation of the tools available. 5.
