You might be surprised at the huge variety of materials we use every day, in the places we live, the vehicles we use, the clothes we wear, and in preparing the food we eat. This book explores how materials engineers research, design, and develop the materials needed to make these products a reality. Readers will also learn how to combine their understanding of materials science and the engineering design process to tackle a design challenge of their own.

Full Text Reviews:

Booklist - 10/15/2015 Engineering is a practical, hands-on field of science, and each volume in the Engineering in Action series profiles some of the varied ways engineers affect everyday life. Each installment describes a field of engineering, a key element of the science involved, history-makers in the field, a case study outlining the design method engineers use to solve a problem, and an activity to demonstrate the concepts in action. Materials Engineering has the most concrete examples sprinkled throughout the volume, though, curiously, the case-study section doesn’t follow one project but describes each step in the process in broad terms. While the use of abstract language in each installment is a drawback, the illustrations are occasionally incidental, and the activities are sometimes difficult to follow, the description of the design process, especially the crucial component of failure and redesign, is particularly useful for students interested in STEM careers. - Copyright 2015 Booklist.
