An undergraduate, junior-level machine design class at the University of Washington, Bothell was modified to incorporate the Granta CES material selection program. Materials selection concepts and methods were interspersed throughout the course and integrated into three student-group design projects involving springs, bearings, rotating shafts, and gear elements. This approach resulted in a practical and effective method of introducing materials selection into the design process and provided needed skills for the follow-on, senior-level capstone design course. At the end of the class, an easy-to-follow, student-written material selection reference guide (with examples) was produced to provide guidance for future classes and students needing a quick overview of the materials selection process and use of the Granta CES software.
