Class Details

Materials have defined much of what is possible in our daily lives. Materials scientists are at the center of imagining and delivering progress, as they improve existing materials and develop new ones to meet today’s needs. Materials science focuses on the relationships between the structure, processing, properties, and performance of materials. In this course, we will explore how the properties and potential applications of a solid are related to its atomic and molecular structure, as well as to its organization on larger length scales than are traditionally considered in chemistry. We will cover a variety of different types of materials including metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites. We will examine some of the latest developments in materials science, including new strategies for the synthesis of materials on different length scales, as well as a variety of potential applications of emerging technologies.
