MSE 151 – Polymeric Materials

Course Number: MSE 151
Course Units: 3
INSTRUCTOR:  Professor T. Xu
This 3-unit course is designed for upper division undergraduate students to gain a fundamental understanding of the science of polymeric materials. It introduces fundamental principles governing polymer synthesis, phase behaviors and various techniques to characterize polymeric materials. The course also introduces the fabrication and applications of polymeric materials, particularly in the thin films, in the nanosciences. nanotechnology and biotechnology. 


Chem 1A or E 5 required, MSE 103 recommended.
