  • Account for the fundamental structure and physical/chemical properties of materials
  • Account for the production and application of materials
  • Describe relevant methods for analysis and testing of materials


  • Select relevant analytical methods and approaches for a given problem
  • Conduct a series of experiments to gain information about key parameters
  • Evaluate results from experiments using statistical methods
  • Select materials to improve either a process or product
  • Write a project report following the standards of the field of study, include relevant literature, use the correct terminology, and communicate the problem and results in writing, graphically and orally in a coherent way
