MSE 500 Modern Concepts in Materials Science
     Syllabus    |    Video Lectures & Notes    |    Logistics  

MSE 500 covers the fundamental principles that govern the physical properties of materials. This course is designed to prepare students without an undergraduate materials degree for further graduate level materials courses. MSE 500 will cover selected topics from senior-level courses in the undergraduate materials science and engineering curriculum. An emphasis will be placed on developing and applying an understanding of basic materials science concepts: atomic bonding; crystallography; defects and diffusion; thermodynamics, phase diagrams and phase transformations; deformation and failure mechanisms in crystalline and noncrystalline solids. This class covers ceramics, metals, polymers, electronic materials and composites. 3 credit hours.
