Course description and aims

This course focuses on the way of material selection when people design products. Topics include physical properties, mechanical characteristics, thermal behaviors, electrical responses, durability, and environmental issues.

Student learning outcomes

At the end of this course, students will be able to select materials which students want to design by learning basics of material selection through exercise and case studies.

Keywords

Materials, Design

Competencies that will be developed

Intercultural skills Communication skills Specialist skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills
- -

Class flow

This course introduces how to select appropriate materials and checks students' understanding by exercise in the first half of the course. Students will have chances to work on the cases by applying knowledge acquired through this course in the latter half of the course.
