MSE 4353. FUNDAMENTALS OF SUSTAINABLE ENERGY. 3 Hours.
Basic concepts and applications of energy generation and storage. Topics cover a broad spectrum of sustainable energy technologies, including thermal, tide, solar, biomass, wind and electrochemical devices, with emphasis on fundamentals in materials and engineering. 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.
