Nanoscale Materials Technology Courses
NMT 150 (3-0-3)
Introduction to Materials Science
This course is a general introduction to the study of materials: metals, ceramics, polymers, and electronic materials. This course investigates the relationship between bonding, structure (crystals and microstructure) and properties of these materials. The course examines elementary principles of thermodynamics as they apply to materials, mechanical properties of materials, and the electronic, optical and magnetic properties of materials.
NMT 152 (3-0-3)
Introduction to Nanoscale Materials
This course introduces students to the field of nanoscale materials. Nanoscale materials
have chemical and physical properties that are significantly different from those
of bulk materials. This course examines the underlying principles of the resulting
size-dependent properties and the processing and fabrication of these materials at
the molecular level. This course will cover the synthesis and assembly of nanoscale
materials based on top-down and bottom-up
approaches. The applications of nanodevices made from nanoscale materials will also be discussed.
