Engineering design concepts in materials processing. Cost estimation. Project planning and scheduling. Plant safety and hazards analysis. Selected project design examples. Credit may not be obtained in this course if previous credit has been obtained in MAT E 365. Prerequisites: CME 265 and MAT E 204 or 301. Corequisites: CH E 314, ENG M 310 or 401, and ENGG 404.
Team materials design projects. Feasibility study and detailed materials design including: selection of materials and manufacturing processes; cost analysis; safety, social, and environmental considerations; failure modes; and microstructural specifications. Projects will require students to exercise creative and critical thinking, decision making, and demonstrate integration of Materials Engineering practice and synthesis of technical knowledge rather than simply analyse existing designs. Prerequisites: ENGG 404, MAT E 336, 345, 351 and 464.
