Let me get into a little secret, CONCRETE is the easiest.

It looks quite hard, but actually all the info is on the web, and has got loads of physics involved, and also not many other people do this material, so your teachers won't really know if you fib a bit.

Real good subject.

Or kevlar-too overdone by loads of people

Contact lens-again loads of info on web, but noone does this.

I am doing the same piece of coursework at the moment and i am using Steel. Its alright theres a load of info on the net and on encyclopedia packages. The good thing is you can use the twin tower thing 9/11 on the bit where you have to put it into context!
Does that mean that you are taking the module exam on 12th Jan as well?

Hope this is of some help
