This course provides the students with training and background in materials and process selection in design. Students will learn to define technical functions of engineering components, identify material properties that maximize the component performance, screen materials based on property constraints, rank candidate materials using material-performance indices and outline detailed specifications including processing methods, economic batch sizes and cost. Students will learn to write a proposal for research support for a senior design project. Students will also learn and write comprehensive reports on four design projects assigned over the course of the semester.
