Credit Points: 10

Equivalent Units
300304 - Sustainable Design: Materials Technology

About this Unit
From 2020, this unit will be replaced by 301288 - Sustainable Materials and Smart Manufacturing.        In this unit we explore materials from a design perspective - their properties, qualities, typical applications, their cost and the environmental impact associated with their extraction, use and disposal. We also look at how they can be formed using contemporary and emerging processing techniques - from sand casting to rapid prototyping. Lectures are supplemented with live demonstrations of materials processing techniques. Students undertake a life cycle materials research project and a design for manufacture (DFM) project.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Students are required to purchase casting material and supplies under the value of $100. Online work safety module must have been completed prior to workshop space use. Specific requirements regarding machine use may require student safety inductions per apparatus i.e. drill, sander.
