A balanced research team, under the leadership of the course co-ordinator, has designed and delivered an advanced module covering the near net shape processing of metallic alloys. The topics covered include alloy solidification and casting, plasticity and metal forming, and a practical laboratory exercise. Details of the course content, and the research on which much of it is based, are hereby presented, along with commentary on the pedagogic rationale for the approach taken.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||The International Council on Materials Education||Journal:||Journal of Materials Education||Volume:||38||Issue:||1-2||Start page:||1||End page:||14||Keywords:||Teaching and learning; Metals processing; Alloy solidification; Plasticity; Microstructural evolution||Other versions:||http://icme.unt.edu/journal.html||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
