Top MATS 221 THE SCIENCE, ENGINEERING AND SOCIAL IMPACT OF NANOTECHNOLOGY (3) 
Nanotechnology is an emerging engineering field that manipulates atoms and molecules to fabricate new materials and tiny devices. Properties of nanostructured materials, manufacturing methods, characterization methods, and impact on health and safety. Benefits and concerns about nanotechnology will be assessed. Lec/rec. CROSSLISTED as ENGR 221. PREREQS: One year of college science.

Top MATS 321 INTRODUCTION TO MATERIALS SCIENCE (4)  Offered in current or future terms
Crystal structure, microstructure, and physical properties of metals, ceramics, polymers, composites, and amorphous materials. Also includes elementary mechanical behavior and phase equilibria. Lec. CROSSLISTED as ENGR 321. PREREQS: (CH 202 [C] or CH 222 [C] or CH 232 [C] or CH 232H [C] or CH 224H [C] )

Top MATS 322 MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF MATERIALS (3)  Offered in current or future terms
Mechanical behavior of materials, relating laboratory test results to material structure, and elements of mechanical analysis. Lec/lab. CROSSLISTED as ENGR 322. PREREQS: (ENGR 213 [C] or ENGR 213H [C] ) and (ENGR 321 [C] or ENGR 321H [C] or MATS 321 [C] )
