The engineering materials to which the paper refers are briefly defined and various classifications mentioned. Developments concerning some interesting and important materials are discussed, with particular reference to probable future developments. Large-scale production of engineering materials in South Africa developed recently ,and thus the study of production, use and quality control is very necessary. New qualities in materials and methods of using them, and above all new approaches to engineering problems, are demanded. These developments will require a progressive approach on the part of both engineers and the industry which applies their knowledge. Improved educational and research facilities will be required.
