Abstract

Material Science is an applied science concerned with the relationship between the structure and properties of materials. It is a discipline that enables the creation and application of materials in society. The challenge of this study is the use of the modular teaching approach in engineering materials. A standardized faculty - student instructional module evaluation checklist that sought for the assessment of the learning objectives, evaluation of acceptability, effectiveness and the acquired skills in the module. The study shows that the instructional module in materials science and engineering are effective for students’ knowledge adaptation and shows suitability to the level of the students and acceptability to the faculty evaluators. This reveals that the evaluators trusted that the module is very valuable to the course which makes students learning experience well stimulated.
