Course title
Practice on Design Project 4

Course description
Materials are necessary to give the designed object a realistic form. If we can analyze and control not only the properties of the materials used but also the processing process and characteristics, the range of design will expand. In this practical training, students will understand the physical properties, processes, and evaluation of materials that are essential for manufacturing, as well as the difficulty of combining different components (materials). In addition, new functions (recycled design) created by the realization of the combination and the methods to realize them will be discussed.
Purpose of class
The class will focus not only on metallic materials but also on polymer materials as materials indispensable for manufacturing, and will include not only material properties and evaluation methods, but also processing processes, so that students will be able to design products from the viewpoint of recycling.
Goals and objectives
  1. You can evaluate the properties of metallic and polymeric materials.
  2. You can sort materials by composition.
  3. You can design recycling of products based on metallic and polymeric material processes.
