One of the world’s most highly regarded Materials Science texts, Callister’s Materials Science and Engineering has been reimagined for the first time for Australian and New Zealand students. This first ANZ edition promotes student understanding of the three primary types of materials (metals, ceramics, and polymers) and composites, as well as the relationships that exist between the structural elements of materials and their properties.

Now featuring ANZ examples, this edition demonstrates how the subject is relevant to their work in a local context, while maintaining the hallmarks of previous editions with excellent readability and engaging examples.



Students respond to the textbook for its clear explanations and jargon-free approach.

 Local Examples

Hearing about all the new developments from Silicon Valley, it’s easy to think that the US is the only place developments are happening. This edition shows students that materials science is also applied and relevant in ANZ.

Market Leading Resource

A classic text that has stood the test of time, Callister’s text will provide a professional with skills that can last decades.
