Abstract

'Materials have been at the helm of current civilization' is an uncontested statement. How did they come to occupy this status is because of their ability to transform in various additive and substitutive states to demonstrate newer classes, which may be product friendly but not necessarily be society friendly? The man inadvertently or in a hurry exploited the latter class of materials, thereby the piousness of earth system has been severely threatened. It is believed that materials came into being as a result of metamorphosis from sound. And to regain those competencies and also to protect our Material-social infrastructure, the man must redeem their processing to effect all-round improvements. This is advocated to be a three step process: Alignment for SHEQ (Safety, Health, Environment, Quality), Utilisation for new efficiencies or products and the Metamorphosis for a new awakening at the cultural level. This paper evaluates as to why our teaching works only at the middle level and consequently fails to stand to the SHEQ and social system requirements. The case study is driven from a class room of teacher-students taught 'polymer' at the Graduate (PG) level.
