Materials Science and Engineering: An Introduction, 1st Australian & New Zealand Edition

,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  ,  

ISBN: 9780730382836

One of the world’s most highly regarded Materials Science texts, Callister’s Materials Science and Engineering has been reimagined for the first time for Australian and New Zealand students. This first ANZ edition promotes student understanding of the three primary types of materials (metals, ceramics, and polymers) and composites, as well as the relationships that exist between the structural elements of materials and their properties.

Now featuring ANZ examples, this edition demonstrates how the subject is relevant to their work in a local context, while maintaining the hallmarks of previous editions with excellent readability and engaging examples.


  • Local examples: Hearing about all the new developments from Silicon Valley, it’s easy to think that the US is the only place developments are happening. This edition shows you that materials science is also applied and relevant in ANZ.
  • A classic that has stood the test of time: A properly read and well-thumbed textbook will provide you with skills that can last a lifetime.
  • Clarity: The textbook has clear explanations with it’s jargon-free approach, only containing the essentials of the subject.

William D. Callister Jr., David G. Rethwisch, Aaron Blicblau, Kiara Bruggeman, Michael Cortie, John Long, Judy Hart, Ross Marceau, Ryan Mitchell, Reza Parvizi, David Rubin De Celis Leal, Steven Babaniaris, Subrat Das, Thomas Dorin, Ajay Mahato and Julius Orwa
