About this Unit
Materials are a critical point of consideration when designing a solution to a technical problem. However, materials can also be quite complex by themselves and can possess a range of properties which may only partially suit an intended solution. In this unit, students use real world scenarios to learn to make decisions concerning material selection under different circumstances, based upon technical requirements, and balanced against sustainability and cost.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Students will require a licence of materials selection software and a suitable device to run it (ie a laptop)
