MTSC 199/299/399/499. Independent Study in Materials Science (1-4E)
This course consists of an independent creative or research project designed by the student and superviser. The nature of the project, the schedule for accomplishment and the means of evaluation must be formalized in a learning contract prior to registration. (See “Independent Study” under “Academic Policies” section.)
MTSC 301. Introduction to Materials Science (4S)
This introductory course provides the basis for combining fundamental concepts learned in general chemistry and physics. Students will investigate the relationship between a material’s nanoscale structure and its macroscale properties, including fundamental optical, electronic, magnetic and mechanical properties of metals, semiconductors, biomolecules and polymers. Prerequisites: CHEM 106 PHYS 142
MTSC 302. Directed Research in Materials Science (4E)
The design, execution, and presentation of the results from an original laboratory research project in materials science or nanotechnology. This course may be repeated for credit. Prerequisite(s): CHEM 103 and PHYS 141 or 151, or permission of instructor.
