Numerical Methods in Materials Science & Engineering

Course Description

    Computational materials science is one of the fastest growing disciplines in materials science. The simulation of materials at a range of scales, from the quantum and molecular, via the mesoscale to continuum level, can provide various scientific advances. MBN 310 course will cover both the theoretical and practical studies in the computational materials science and nanotechnology. Within the framework of this course, students will learn numerical methods and algorithms in general. This course will provide information about diffusion, kinetics, and molecular dynamics; and give hands-on information about state of the art computer software to adapt the students into this rapidly developing field.

    Students are required to bring their laptops to classes.
