MSE 4351. CURRENT TOPICS IN NANOTECHNOLOGY. 3 Hours.
Review and discussion of the latest advancements in the field of nanoscale science and technology. Topics include nanoscale electronic materials/devices, energy materials and devices, biological and chemical sensors, cancer diagnosis and cure, self assembly of materials, nanoscale composite materials, techniques for observing and manipulating atoms and molecules, and synthesis of nanoscale materials such as nanoparticles, nanowires, and graphenes. The course will comprise of several sections (several subareas of nanoscale science and technology) and will be taught by several professors who have expertise in each field. Prerequisite: Department consent and must be in a college of engineering professional program or college of science professional program.
The interdisciplinary field of materials science and engineering has become critical to many emerging areas of science and advanced technology. As a result, there is a growing demand for engineers and scientists with education and training in materials science and engineering. The Materials Science and Engineering Department provides students with such education and training through its graduate master's and doctoral degree programs. Additionally, the department offers undergraduate courses for use as electives in science and engineering, in Fast Track Programs in Materials Science and Engineering, in minor programs in this discipline and in Certificate in Nanotechnology.
