Certificate in materials technology
Materials technology is a relatively comprehensive discipline that begins with the production of goods from raw materials to processing of materials into the shapes and forms needed for specific applications.
Materials - metals, plastics and ceramics - typically have completely different properties, which means that the technologies involved in their production are fundamentally different. Materials technology is a constantly evolving discipline, and new materials with interesting properties lead to new applications. For example, the combination of different materials into composites gives rise to entirely new material properties. Materials Science is closely related to materials technology. Materials Science is a multidisciplinary field that connects material properties to the material’s chemical composition, micro-structure and crystal structure.
