This module provides students with a foundation in
the testing, characterisation and analysis of structural,
electronic, photonic, and biomedical materials. With
an engineering and scientific approach, the module
introduces students to the various methods through which
the durability and reliability of materials can be improved.
It also allows students to understand the root cause of
the failure problems and their prevention. Topics include
materials failure investigation for various classifications
of materials, the tools used in materials investigation,
metallurgical failure mechanisms root causes. Students
also investigate the cause of failed engineering products
and propose preventive measures which require them
to innovate by applying new materials with improved
