ME 388 Sustainable Materials

This class examines the implications of the use of natural resources as engineering materials. Students will advance their understanding of the nature and strength of materials by exploring current processing methods for different products, then studying the technological innovations that seek to make those processes better. Using real-world case studies and software, students will also examine the implications of replacing materials in some applications with more sustainable alternatives.
