MSE 1140 - Materials: The Future of Energy

(crosslisted) ENGRI 1140  
Fall. 3 credits. Student option grading.

Prerequisite: knowledge of Calculus, Physics, and Chemistry at the high school level. Course in introduction to engineering series. S/U grades are only allowed by permission of instructor.

R.B. van Dover.

New technologies are urgently needed to fulfill projected global energy requirements. Materials properties typically limit the performance that can be achieved in generation, transport, and utilization of energy. This course will explore how new materials can increase our energy supply, facilitate transportation of energy, and decrease consumption. Materials issues in photovoltaic, fuel cell, battery, transportation, lighting, and building technologies will be studied.
