Why are some materials as hard as nails, soft as putty, tough as old boots or as strong as an ox (!?) and how can they be improved? This paper explores the wonderful world of materials science and engineering.
The learning outcomes for this paper are linked to Washington Accord graduate attributes WA1-WA11. Explanation of the graduate attributes can be found at: https://www.ieagreements.org/
This paper is taught through lectures and practical labs on the Hamilton campus as well as online content. Where practical, in-person participation in the on-campus activities (Lectures and Laboratories) is strongly encouraged. Video recordings of lectures will be made available for those not attending on-campus. Online versions of other paper activities (laboratory sessions and tests) can be made available on a case-by-case basis for those unable to attend campus (or for the whole class in the event of another Lockdown). If you need to complete paper activities online, email the paper convenor (email@example.com) to discuss your situation.
Practical Laboratory Sessions: Two hour long Practical sessions to be held on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays (between 11am-1pm) from the 4th week of Trimester A. Laboratory groups are to be assigned during the 1st two weeks of Trimester A. Students are expected to attend one laboratory session every two weeks on their group's allocated day and complete all four experiments.
IMPORTANT NOTE for students - Laboratory Handbook
Please collect the Laboratory Handbook required for this paper, from the Waikato Print Shop during the 1st two weeks of teaching. A printing fee is charged to the student on collection of the handbook. A PDF version will be available for download on the Moodle page.
Laboratory Session Worksheets and Laboratory Reports are a very important part of the Materials 1 paper and attendance at Laboratory Sessions is compulsory.
Important Note for International Students: For international students in New Zealand under student visas, regular attendance is part of your visa obligation and is checked as a requirement on the University under the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students, to which the University is a signatory. Academic staff are formally required to monitor attendance in classes and submission of compulsory assessment events/items and to report to Waikato International in the event that any problem with irregular attendance or non-submission is not resolved.
Students who successfully complete the paper should be able to:
Predict the behaviour of different materials by applying knowledge of fundamental material properties and knowledge of material structure, including imperfections (WA1).
Linked to the following assessments:• Test One (1)• Test Two (2)• Final Exam (4)
Explain the influence of diffusional processes within materials on material properties (WA1).
Linked to the following assessments:• Test One (1)• Final Exam (4)
Apply knowledge of the influence of process time and temperature to enable control of material structure and properties (WA1).
Linked to the following assessments:• Test One (1)• Test Two (2)• Laboratory Worksheets and Reports (3)• Final Exam (4)
Use binary equilibrium phase diagrams to define the different phases and amount of those phases present for different systems (WA1).
Linked to the following assessments:• Test One (1)• Laboratory Worksheets and Reports (3)• Final Exam (4)
Effectively communicate scientific and technical information through written laboratory reports (WA1 & WA9)
Linked to the following assessments:• Laboratory Worksheets and Reports (3)
This paper facilitates the development of technical writing, an important competency expected of a scientist and engineer. In order to pass this paper, students are expected to demonstrate their ability to produce written work of an adequate standard. Learning outcomes will be assessed by means of a combination of tests, laboratory reports, and a final exam.
Samples of your work may be required as part of the Engineering New Zealand accreditation process for BE(Hons) degrees. Any samples taken will have the student name and ID redacted. If you do not want samples of your work collected then please email the engineering administrator, Natalie Shaw (firstname.lastname@example.org), to opt out.
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50. There is no final exam. The final exam makes up 50% of the overall mark.
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50 or 0:0, whichever is more favourable for the student. The final exam makes up either 50% or 0% of the overall mark.
