Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

This course will allow students at an advanced level, to experience the concept of Materials Science/Engineering. The emphasis, where possible, will be relevant to New Zealand conditions and will reflect the increasing demand required by industry in areas such as microstructure modification, new materials, fabrication techniques and engineering materials.

Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content

This paper is primarily taught through face-to-face 'Lecture Discussions' on the Hamilton campus (which are replacing Lectures & Tutorials, as a combination of both), online content, and practical labs.

Where practical, in-person participation in the on-campus activities (Lecture Discussions and Laboratories) is strongly encouraged.

Online content and online versions of activities (such as video recordings) will be made available for those not attending on-campus.

Practicals: Schedule to be announced during week 1.

Laboratory work forms a very important part of the Materials 2 paper and competition of laboratory activities (or online versions of them) 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.
