Overview of materials used in engineering-metals, ceramics, plastics, semiconductors and wood. Examines microstructure of materials and macroscopic properties such as modulus of elasticity and tensile and shear strengths. Topics such as phase diagrams, solid state transformations, fracture, corrosion and sizing are included. Some laboratory demonstrations.
Labs to be scheduled outside of class hours, schedule to be determined. Please contact Kelly Voros at 604-451-6892 or firstname.lastname@example.org to be placed on a waitlist if the course is full. No classes Monday February 12 and Monday, April 2, 2018 - stat holidays. Note: BCIT reserves the right to cancel courses.

This course offering is in progress. Please check back next term or subscribe to receive email updates.
Upon successful completion, the student will be able to:
Outline the various materials, such as metals, plastics, ceramics, and their applications.
Relate the microstructure structures of engineering materials, such as metals and plastics, to their macroscopic properties.
Design members of an engineering design with appropriate safety factors.
Outline the basic processes of phase transformations, phase and equilibria diagrams, and cast structures.
Become familiar with material failures.
Analyze stress strain diagrams.
Select the appropriate material for an engineering design.
