Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering: An Integrated Approach, 5th Edition

ISBN: 9781119175483

Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering: An Integrated Approach, 5th Edition takes an integrated approach to the sequence of topics – one specific structure, characteristic, or property type is covered in turn for all three basic material types: metals, ceramics, and polymeric materials. This presentation permits the early introduction of non-metals and supports the engineer’s role in choosing materials based upon their characteristics. Using clear, concise terminology that is familiar to students, Fundamentals presents material at an appropriate level for both student comprehension and instructors who may not have a materials background.


  • New resources designed to support a more engaging Learning Experience and more meaningful Learning Outcomes.
  • VMSE (Virtual Materials Science & Engineering), with a new interface, helps students visualize concepts related to crystal structures, diffusion tensile tests, and more. For example, it allows students to rotate unit cells in 3-d to better understand molecular structures. Also includes a Database of Engineering Materials Properties that can be used for materials selection problems.
  • Questions about VMS: Questions that students need to use VMSE to answer help students get best value from its use, and instructors incentivize its use.
  • Video Tutorials:  Muddy Point videos feature a student explaining tough concepts that have been identified through research as the most difficult to understand.
