The purpose of this course is to make sound, intelligent selections of materials for safe and efficient structures or components.
A unique feature of the course is that it contains the methodology of design and how materials selection should be
simultaneously chosen at every stage of the design process − concurrent engineering. The materials selection should be
effected through consideration not only of their properties, their processing, and their fabrication, but also their recyclability,
recovery, and disposal after their use, involving the concept of life−cycle analysis. * Physical, chemical and mechanical
properties of materials that are important for the design of the structure of a component. Microstructure insensitive properties
such as density, modulus and coefficient of linear expansion which are unaffected by processing. * Properties such as strength,
fracture toughness, fatigue and creep that are affected by processing and the resultant microstructure. How processing
influences these properties including corrosion resistance, and the manner in which they change during the fabrication of
components. * Processing of metals and alloys. Solid state equilibrium and non−equilibrium transformations. Melting,
solidification and casting of metals, including welding. Plastic deformation including rolling and annealing. Thermal processes

This course focuses on the strategic management of technology and innovation established firms. We take an evolutionary
process perspective. The fundamental ideas underlying the perspective are: (1) that a firms technology strategy emerges from
its technological competencies and capabilities, (2) that the technology strategy is shaped by evolutionary external
(environmental) and internal (organizational) Forces. The course draws on strategic management, economics and organization
theory for analytical tools to address important challenges faced by senior and middle managers in technology based firms.
The course is practice oriented. Case studies of various real life situations will require in−depth analysis to be complemented
with specific action recommendations. * To develop an awareness of the range, scope and complexity of the issues and
problems related to strategic management of technology and innovation * To develop an understanding of the state of the art
of strategic management of technology and innovation * To learn how to practically apply theoretical concepts in strategic
management of technology and innovation.

deal with models and analyses of the inbound transportation of raw materials, manufactured components and sub−assemblies.

(various modes, customer service, multi−location inventory management and distribution−centre site selection. Specialized
topics (for term projects) may be chosen from among Logistics Information Systems; Global Supply Chain Management;
Vehicle Routing; or the Logistics of e−Commerce.
