Trend 12 ~ Advanced Materials: The ability to understand and work with the new and smart material which may include ceramics, polymers, semiconductors, magnetic materials, medical implant materials, biological materials and nanomaterials. This relatively new scientific field involves studying materials through the materials paradigm (synthesis, structure, properties and performance). Necessary Skills and Knowledge Chemistry Coating Composite Materials Environmental Friendly Processes & Materials Fluid Dynamics Lubricants Material Science Nanotechnology Physics Plastics Recycled/Salvage Sensors/The Internet of Things (IoT) Smart Materials The cross-correlation of new materials, new technologies, and the new demands of the customer should not be under estimated by manufacturing companies or employees today.
