3 Classes (33 Units)3.012 (15), 3.072 (12), 6.037 (6)
3.012 Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering
Describes the fundamentals of structure and energetics that underpin materials science. Presents thermodynamic concepts and the laws governing equilibrium properties, and the connections between thermodynamic concepts and materials phenomena, such as phase transformations, multiphase equilibria, and chemical reactions. Introduces computerized thermodynamics. Structure of noncrystalline, crystalline, and liquid-crystalline states. Symmetry and tensor properties of materials. Point, line, and surface imperfections in materials. Diffraction and structure determination.
Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in 4-231.
This class counts for a total of 15 credits.
3.072 Symmetry, Structure and Tensor Properties of Materials
Studies the underlying structures of materials and deepens understanding of the relationship between the properties of materials and their structures. Topics include lattices, point groups, and space groups in both two and three dimensions; the use of symmetry in the tensor representation of crystal properties; and the relationship between crystalline structure and properties, including transport properties, piezoelectricity, and elasticity. Students taking graduate version complete additional assignments.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
6.037 Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs
Studies the structure and interpretation of computer programs which transcend specific programming languages. Demonstrates thought patterns for computer science using Scheme. Includes weekly programming projects. Enrollment may be limited.
This class has no prerequisites.
