Materials Science and Engineering: An Introduction, 10th Australia & New Zealand Edition

ISBN: 9781119563334

Callister and Rethwisch’s tenth edition of Materials Science and Engineering: An Introduction continues to teach and inspire. Written in a clear and concise way, this text will help you to understand the three basic material types (metals, ceramics, and polymeric materials) and composites, as well as the relationships that exist between the structural elements of materials and their properties. Materials Science and Engineering: An Introduction, 10th Edition will help you throughout your engineering degree and into your career.

This resource contains interactive simulations and animations that enhance the learning of key concepts in materials science and engineering (e.g., crystal structures, crystallographic planes/directions, dislocations) and, in addition, a comprehensive materials property database. This edition is supported by a redesigned version of Virtual Materials Science and Engineering (VMSE).


  • Full colour photographs have been added to help you understand and visualise key concepts.
  • Clear and concise discussions
  • Concept Check
