This seminar will cover '"From materials science to its place in design".
Material are everywhere around us. Our coffee cup, smartphone, bicycle, clothes, you name it. And we use different materials for different things for good reason. And they have to be designed. part of what has changed in recent years is the extent to which unusual materials we don't know much about - such as lithium - have entered our lives and changed them. And the design challenges these present. This seminar is a chance to hear about this, learn about where things are going with respect to the "stuff" around us, and agonise a little about their sustainability.
