Summary

 

Engineering Practice 1 - AERO40004

Aims

Engineering practice involves more than the application of theory and utilising mathematics to solve problems. It requires engineers to have an awareness of practical, legal, ethical and manufacturing constraints, to be creative in proposing solutions to problems, and be able to communicate, collaborate, plan and manage their work. This module offers a first opportunity to engage in engineering practice, while supported by a range of workshops, lectures and tutorials.

Role

Lecturer

Fundamentals of Composite Materials - MSc AERO70033

Aims

This module will take you through some of the fundamental concepts in composite materials, which the rest of the MSc programme will build upon. The module will start with an introduction to various composite systems, followed by the mechanical properties and characterisation of composite materials.

Role

Lecturer

Advanced Manufacturing - MSc AERO70002

Aims

The module introduces manufacturing processes of composite materials and their corresponding underlying manufacturing principles to provide a deeper understanding of the relationship between design, manufacturing processing and materials properties. Various manufacturing methods are discussed, including short polymer fibre composites, advanced thermoplastic composites, advanced thermoset composites, melt metallurgical processes, powder metallurgical processes, advanced hybrid fibre metal laminates and ceramic matrix composite manufacturing route via melt infiltration, chemical vapour infiltration and polymer impregnation and pyrolysis processes. The real life applications of each manufacturing processes are also covered in this module.

Analytical Characterisation of Composite Materials - MSc AERO70023

Aims

This module introduces the various types of advanced analytical techniques used to characterise the properties of polymers, fibres and fibre-matrix interfaces, building upon the unique expertise within the Department. We will cover various spectroscopic, surface & interface, and thermo-mechanical characterisations suitable for characterising polymer composites. Analytical techniques suitable to characterise the bulk properties of polymer composites will also be covered in this module. For each of the analytical characterisation technique discussed, a basic understanding will first be provided, followed by an in-depth discussion of what the data and results mean. The real world applications of the analytical characterisation techniques are also covered in this module. Ultimately, students will be able to adapt and expand these advanced analytical characterisation techniques for various advanced materials beyond polymer composites. The content covered in this module is particularly suited for students who (i) aims to pursue a doctoral degree in materials-related subjects or (ii) intend to work with materials.
