Official Description

Experiments include direct hands-on investigations or are performed through computational approaches. Laboratory experiences include both fundamental studies as well as investigations on more applied topics. Course Information: 1.5 undergraduate hours. 1.5 graduate hours. May be repeated if topics vary. Prerequisite: MSE 307 and MSE 308 or permission of instructor. Senior standing.

Section Description

Hands-on experience with popular macroscopic computational materials science and engineering software through project-based learning in finite element modeling (OOF2) and phase equilibria calculations (Thermo-Calc). Students will also develop proficiency in data analysis and visualization in MATLAB. The course will prioritize the physical principles underlying the software to confer an understanding of their applicability and limitations, and hands-on immersive praxis to give students the confidence and expertise to independently use these tools.
