  • As the title of the module suggests the subject of these units are Basic Engineering Materials and I must stress basic.

    The general public go through their everyday lives giving little thought to the materials surrounding them.  Every item, components, or article that has been shaped by man has been made out of a particular material for a variety of reasons. Ultimately they are made as cheaply as possible, whether a Rolls Royce or a plastic bucket!

     

    What you will learn from this module is to decide what the component is made from and why.

    This course material allows the learner to grasp the basics of what materials are; their forms, structure, etc. It is at the level of National Certiifcate, SCQF level 5/6
