MAT 302: Electronic Properties of Materials (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012)

The electronic structure of materials, i.e., band and zone theory, is presented from a physical point of view. Electrical conductivity in metals, semiconductors, insulators and superconductors is discussed. Simple semiconductor devices reviewed. Magnetic properties are examined in the context of domain theory and applications are discussed. Optical and dielectric properties of semiconductors and ferroelectrics are considered. Prerequisites: MAT 201, MAT 203.

MAT 33: Engineering Materials and Processes (2008, 2012)

Application of physical and chemical principles to understanding, selection, and fabrication of engineering materials. Materials considered include metals, polymers, ceramics, composites and electronic materials. Case studies of materials used range from transportation systems to microelectronic devices.
