This paper gives students an opportunity to learn advanced materials science knowledge and principles underlying materials engineering. It focuses on the relationships between processing conditions and microstructure of materials and major materials processing technologies. Aspects covered in this course include: solidification processing, oxidation and corrosion, metallic powder consolidation, ceramic processing, and composite fabrication technology. Flipped learning where students are asked to present in front of the class could be used for some of the content of the paper.
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.
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 resulting cast microstructure by applying the nucleation theories, explain via the growth model the formation of phases and defects, and describe the thermodynamic and kinetics principles of corrosion and oxidation (WA1)
Linked to the following assessments:• Test 1 (1)• Exam (4)
Describe the consolidation of metallic powders and predict the resulting properties as per the conventional powder metallurgy theory, and explain the influence of the presence of a liquid phase or an applied pressure during sintering (WA1)
Linked to the following assessments:• Test 1 (1)• Test 2 (2)• Exam (4)
Appreciate the influence of microstructure on the processing and properties of ceramics, and consider a range of shape forming methods to fabricate ceramics and the associated benefits/drawbacks of each method (WA1)
Linked to the following assessments:• Test 2 (2)• Exam (4)
Apply knowledge of the manufacturing processes available for the production of composite materials, and describe the configuration, mechanical properties and failure mechanism of mechanically fastened and adhesively bonded materials (WA1)

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.
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 (email@example.com), to opt out.
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 60:40. There is no final exam. The final exam makes up 40% of the overall mark.
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 60:40 or 0:0, whichever is more favourable for the student. The final exam makes up either 40% or 0% of the overall mark.
