Summary

 

Mathematics and Computing - MSE 101

Aims

This course is designed to give students a firm foundation in the aspects of Mathematics and Computing of most relevance to Materials Science and Engineering, especially the topics required in subsequent years of study. The missions of Mathematics and Computer Programming are to provide tools, and sufficient knowledge to use them effectively, for the purpose of understanding and applying the quantitative methods of Materials Science and Engineering.  The course content takes into account the broad spectrum of pre-university syllabi.

Role

Course Leader

Modelling - MSE 317

Aims

This course introduces students to a selection of important modelling techniques. It covers methods applicable to a range of length scales and materials types that can be used to solve practical problems in Materials Science and Engineering. Students will have an opportunity to use these methods by performing simulations using code that will be provided.

 

 

Role

Course Leader

Mathematics and Computing - MSE 201

Aims

This course is a continuation of the first year course MSE 101, and aims to give students a firm foundation in the aspects of Mathematics and Computing of most relevance to Materials Science and Engineering, especially the topics required in subsequent years of study. The missions of Mathematics and Computer Programming are to provide tools, and sufficient knowledge to use them safely, for the purpose of understanding and applying the quantitative methods of Materials Science and Engineering.

 

Role

Lecturer

Materials Engineering 1 - MSE 103

Aims

This course is designed to give students the firm foundation in the fundamentals of mechanics (statics) required in subsequent years of study and to serve as a valuable self-standing unit.
