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.
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/assets/Uploads/Documents/IEA-Graduate-Attributes-and-Professional-Competencies-2021.1-Sept-2021.pdf"
This paper is taught through lectures on the Hamilton campus, online content, and practical labs, 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 can be made available case-by-case basis or in the event of another Lockdown)
Practicals: The laboratory experiment schedule to be announced during week 2.
Laboratory work forms a very important part of the Materials 2 paper and competition of laboratory activities 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.
