CREDIT VALUE: 3
PREREQUISITE (IF ANY): NONE
OBJECTIVES:
  1. To provide an introduction to the relationships between the processing of materials and their properties
  2. To provide students an introduction to these fundamental concept and relationship of heat treating, forming, casting, consolidation, and other more material-specific manufacturing processes
LEARNING OUTCOMES: Upon successful completion of this course students should have the ability to:

  1. Explain the essential concepts, principles and theories of material processing (LO1-C4)
  2. Update the current technology of material processing (LO3-P4, CTPS 5)
TRANSFERABLE SKILLS: Students should be understood the concept and relationship between the processing of materials and their properties through a process of lectures and assignment.
TEACHING-LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT STRATEGY: Teaching-learning strategy:

  • The course will be taught through a combination of formal lectures, assignments, group work, blended learning using authentic materials, informal activities and various textbooks.

Assessment strategy:

  • Formative
  • Summative
SYNOPSIS: An introduction to the relationships between the processing of materials and their properties. Heat treating, forming, casting, consolidation, and other more material-specific manufacturing processes. Elucidation of the role of phenomena such as heat flow, mass diffusion, nucleation, interfacial tension, elastic and plastic deformation, precipitation, grain growth.   For example, vapor deposition and solidification as examples of vapor-solid and liquid-solid phase transformations respectively. The phase transformations are presented in the context of industrial processes (casting, thin film deposition, glass tempering and precipitation hardening).
MODE OF DELIVERY: Lecture, Group Work, Online assignment etc
