Study commitment

Students will on average spend 300 hours over the teaching period undertaking the teaching, learning and assessment activities for this unit.

Scheduled learning activities - campus

3 x 2 hour practicals per trimester, 1 x 2 hour seminar per week, 1 x 2 hour studio per week.

Scheduled learning activities - cloud (online)

Online independent and collaborative learning including 1 x 2 hour seminar per week, 1 x 2 hour studio per week. Students are required to attend and participate in a 1 x 2 hour practical laboratory at the Waurn Ponds (Geelong) Campus during the trimester intensive activities as detailed in the unit site.


This unit introduces students to various types of materials that are typically used in wide ranging engineering applications. Initially, emphasis will be given on gaining appropriate knowledge of mechanical properties of various material types through combinations of theoretical, practical and case study analysis. Students will learn the significance of mechanical properties that are important in engineering design. Students will also gain knowledge on loading, stress calculation techniques and relevant engineering design principles to tackle those stresses by combining available material and typical structural shapes. Students shall be individually assessed on their performance through quiz, reports and oral presentations, and their team participation performance shall be assessed regularly during studio sessions, through group submission and peer review during the intensive week.

Hurdle requirement

To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must achieve an overall mark of at least 50% of the on-campus quiz; and a mark of at least 40% in the final assessment task: Final Design Report and Presentation
