This book emphasizes the importance of the interdisciplinary approach of education and research, particularly from the perspective of materials science and engineering discipline. This approach is aimed at helping readers to comprehensively understand the physical, chemical, biological and engineering aspects of any research problem. The content of this book is prepared to maintain the strong background of the fundamental engineering disciplines with the flourishing effect of integration of these disciplines with natural science. Aimed at senior undergraduate and graduate students in materials science and other streams of engineering, this book presents key concepts in engineering, biological, chemical and physical sciences, and includes case studies on biomedical materials and renewable energy. This textbook also provides numerous problems of various formats for the self-evaluation purpose.
