A course that discuss a rather fundamental tool all engineers have to have: Material selection techniques.
Even though the structure of the course is developed around a series of textbooks published by one of the important authorities in the matter, the course content tend to be too general and many important aspects are simplified for the sake of students with deficit in materials sciences, heat transfer and mechanical behaviour of materials.
The course is biased to mechanical and structural components, leaving applications in thermodynamic, optics and electromagnetism out of the scope.
However, the learning materials provided are world-class research articles, books and other documents in which the main methodologies treated in the course are proven to be applied in real engineering problems.
