BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.
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 on a schedule to be determined on the first day of class. Registrants who are not BTech Electronics students must have approval from the program head. Please contact Katie Howard at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or to be placed on a wait-list if the course is full. No class on Feb 21st (Family Day) or April 18th (Easter Monday). Note: BCIT reserves the right to cancel courses. In the event of a Part-time Studies course cancellation, you will be notified at least two business days prior to the course start. Please ensure that your contact information is current.
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.
Effective as of Winter 2015
