Undergraduate Programs

Course 10-ENG: Bachelor of Science in Engineering with Concentration

 

Materials Process and Design Concentration

This concentration enables students to gain knowledge in the manipulation of materials systems, from their synthesis to their processing into final products. Students can elect topics that include organic chemistry and materials synthesis, thermodynamically driven self-assembly and the generation of hybrid organic-inorganic materials. Students are able to engage in materials processing, including nanomaterials and microfluidic processing, and to examine mechanical, optical, and other materials properties as a function of their composition and processing. The classes listed below are suggested subjects, but students may propose any set of courses that fit the materials concentration pending approval from their 10-ENG advisor.

Suggested Undergraduate Subjects
Students can choose 4 of the following subjects, or propose other subjects that are consistent with this concentration in consultation with his or her advisor.
