This course unit provides students with a deep understanding of the applications, the properties and the shaping processes of the most important engineering materials like polymers, lightweight metals and special steels. The course builds on the basic course MAP1 and will provide the student with a deeper knowledge of specific material and process classes and better skills in selecting the right material and process for an application using appropriate software and literature. The course strongly supports the project work when considering functionality, reliability, safety and environmental issues. Company visits, external guest lecturers and problems based on real life tasks will also be part of the course.
