INTEGRATION OF MATERIALS INSTRUCTION IN THE FIELD OF MANUFACTURING R. Mott,1 R. Bennett,2 M. Stratton,3 I. Cossette,4 F. Cox,4 T.

These two fields are inextricably interwoven since manufacturingprocesses can change the properties of a material, hence changing the behavior of theultimate product. Materials technology emphasizes the properties of materials, theirinfluence on the design of products and systems, and the processing of the materials duringmanufacturing. Educators from the materials education area and the manufacturingeducation area collaborated in the preparation of the paper to communicate theinterdependence of these fields. A tool for facilitating this dialog is included, called the FourPillars of Manufacturing Knowledge, developed by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers.The MatEd website for materials technology and the METEC website for manufacturing andengineering technology are also featured. This paper is a collaborative effort between the National Resource Center forMaterials Technology Education (MatEd), the National Center for Manufacturing Education(NCME), and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), through its Center forEducation and the Manufacturing Education & Research Community. The authors seek toshare the paper with the ASEE Manufacturing Division and other parts of ASEE withinterest in manufacturing, materials, and design. It is also being disseminated through theMatEd resource database, the NCME’s Manufacturing and Engineering TechnologyEducation Clearinghouse (METEC), and publications of SME and other organizations for thebenefit of both manufacturing and materials communities.
