Struggling with metals, ceramics or polymeric materials in your engineering course? Let Materials Science and Engineering: An Introduction 10th Edition guide you through the properties and relationships of these materials. Materials Science and Engineering: An Introduction, 9th Edition is packed full of full-colour diagrams and photographs to help you understand phases, chemical structures and more.


If you are looking for more study tools to help you with your Engineering course, why not use WileyPLUS, which comes complete with this text. WileyPLUS has a number of self-study tools that can help you understand what Materials Science and Engineering is all about. Added to WileyPLUS are new 3D videos that will help further your understanding of molecules. If you find that you are stuck on some of the tough concepts, why not try the Tutorial Videos in WileyPLUS, these were designed to cover the topics that students find most difficult to understand.


  • VMSE (Virtual Materials Science and Engineering), a new and unique tool for visualizing molecules and manipulating them in 3D. Available in WileyPLUS.
  • New Tutorial Videos explain from a student’s perspective tough concepts that have been identified through research as the most challenging topics to understand – students’ “muddiest points”. Available in WileyPLUS.
  • New full colour photographs have been added to help you understand and visualise key concepts.
