THE WONDERS OF MATERIALS
New materials have been among the greatest achievements of every age and they have been central to the growth, prosperity, security, and quality of life of humans since the beginning of history. It is always new materials that open the door to new technologies, whether they are in civil, chemical, construction, nuclear, aeronautical, agricultural, mechanical, biomedical or electrical engineering. Materials technology continue to be at the forefront of all of these and many other areas of science, too. Materials science influences our lives each time we buy or use a new device, machine, or structure. The definition of the academic field of Materials Science & Technology stems from a realization concerning every application of materials: it is the properties of the material that give it value. A material may be chosen for its strength, its electrical properties, resistance to heat or corrosion, or a host of other reasons; but they all relate to properties. Therefore, to introduce students what is materials, Material Technology Program was initiated and promoted WHAT IS MATERIALS TECHNOLOGY talk in Facebook and can be stream by all people. This talk was started with Ts. Dr Teo Pao Ter and next, all Materials Technology’s lecture will be involved and talk about their expertise. Materials Technology’s lectures will introduce more details to community in order to introduce and make people more understand what materials in technology is.
