MSE 721 Nanoscale Simulations and Modeling
 

The course is designed to assist engineering students in learning the fundamentals and cutting-edge nature of various simulations methods. The modeling tools range from accurate first principles quantum-based approaches to multi-scale approaches that combine atomic and continuum modeling. Previous knowledge of simulations is not required. The course is appropriate for graduate students in materials science, engineering, chemistry, physics and biomedical fields. 3 credit hours.

 
   

• Prerequisite
 

Previous knowledge of simulations is not required. The course is appropriate for advanced undergrads and graduate students in materials science, engineering, chemistry, physics and biomedical fields.


• Course Objectives
 

To introduce students to nanometer-scale modeling tools and their application to nanostructures and nanotechnology.

Upon completing this course, students will be able to understand, explain, and discuss scientific papers in the nanoscale field and to apply simulation methods in future research.


• Course Requirements
 

Approximately 60% of the course grade will be based on four class projects and 40% will be based on mid-term and final exams.

SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS: Windows PC supporting software which will be provided free of cost.
