MATSCI 10SC: Diamonds from Peanut Butter: Material Technologies and Human History

Technological importance of materials in history is captured in names: the Stone Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age, and now the Information Age or the Silicon Age. How materials have played, and continue to play, pivotal roles in the development of new technologies.

MATSCI 11SC: Energy Technologies for a Sustainable Future

Wondering what the buzz is about sustainability, renewable energy, and clean fuels? Meeting the world's growing energy needs in a sustainable fashion is one of the most pressing problems of our time. This class will introduce the scope of the energy problem and define some of the options for sustainable energy. We will look into the scientific basis of sustainable energy technologies, such as solar cells, which convert the energy of the sun directly into electricity, and fuel cells, which convert chemical energy directly into electricity. Other topics will include biofuels, i.e., fuel derived from plant matter, and clean fuels such as hydrogen. The course will emphasize the fundamental science behind the devices and highlight some of the cutting-edge technological issues that are currently being explored. Assigned reading will include books on global energy issues as well as technical reading on the science and engineering of sustainable energy technologies. We will visit several local energy-technology companies, and students will have hands-on lab experience with solar cells, fuel cells, and generators. Students are expected to participate in classroom discussions, attend field trips, carry out laboratory experiments, and complete homework assignments, including a term paper.

MATSCI 81N: Bioengineering Materials to Heal the Body

Preference to freshmen. How scientists and engineers are designing new materials for surgeon to use in replacing body parts such as heart tissue or the spinal cord. How cells, in the body and transplanted stem cells, communicate with implanted materials. Real-world examples of materials developed for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine therapies. Students identify a clinically important disease or injury that requires a better material, research approaches to the problem, and debate possible engineering solutions.
