Abstract

The proper understanding of engineering materials is very foundational and important with respect to all the various branches of engineering, science, and technology for a complete undergraduate engineering program. The purpose of this communication is to help satisfy this requirement for a more thorough undergraduate engineering foundation in a broad range of various courses in the different disciplines across engineering by using the web. This would provide undergraduate students with access to various opportunities and capabilities in their curriculum using the web to access different materials engineering related goals, activities, and learning experiences. The web development work illustrated in this communication will provide undergraduate engineering students a user friendly approach to learning and better understanding the principles of basic fundamental engineering materials, chemical engineering, materials design, engineering science, chemistry and metallurgy necessary for a more fulfilling and exciting undergraduate engineering experience.

Introduction

This project is designed to improve the interactive learning environment that students have in learning material science in their undergraduate studies. Various courses such as metal processing, strength of materials, machine design, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, manufacturing processes, mechanical behavior of materials, principles of engineering materials, materials laboratory, senior lab, senior design, and metallic corrosion require a good understanding of engineering science and materials for the success of the undergraduate students. The goal would be to enhance and improve the student's materials & engineering science background and knowledge and also their computer skills using the web in an interactive user- friendly environment. Rather than simply reading information from a book, the students would be deeply involved with an interactive instructional learning of materials science, material processing, chemistry and metallurgy. The student would actually be involved in the various experiments and several course tutorials using the web. The proper understanding of manufacturing, metal processing, and engineering materials is very foundational and important with respect to all the various branches of mechanical and manufacturing engineering and science for a complete undergraduate engineering program. The purpose of this proposal is to help satisfy this requirement for a more thorough undergraduate manufacturing and engineering foundation in a broad range of various courses in the different disciplines across engineering by using the web. This would provide undergraduate students with access to various opportunities
