During the last couple of decades, treatment of microstructure in materials science has been shifted from the diagnostic to design paradigm. Design of microstructure is inherently complex problems due to non linear spatial and temporal interaction of composition and parameters leading to the target properties. In most of the cases, different properties are reciprocally correlated i.e., improvement of one lead to the degradation of other. Also, the design of microstructure is a multiscale problem, as the knowledge of phenomena at range of scales from electronic to mesoscale is required for precise composition-microstructure-property determination. In the view of above, present chapter provides the introduction to computationally driven microstructure engineering in the framework of constitutive length scale in microstructure design. The important issues pertaining to design such as phase stability and interfaces has been explained. Additionally, the bird-eye view of various computational techniques in order of length scale has been introduced, with an aim to present the picture of combination of various techniques for solving microstructural design problems under various scenarios.
