MSEN3304 - Materials Science for Sustainable Energy

MSEN 3304 Materials Science for Sustainable Energy (3 semester credit hours) The global community is actively developing renewable energy sources to replace fossil fuels and to minimize their negative impact on climate change. Materials science is providing key enabling technologies for the development of diverse renewable energy sources (solar cells, biofuels, wind, geothermal etc.) and their practical utilization (energy storage, fuel cells, electrical vehicles, etc.). This course examines energy and climate issues, and describes the role of materials science and nanotechnology in the development and implementation of sustainable energy solutions. Prerequisites: CHEM 1312 and (MATH 2415 or MATH 2419 or equivalent) and (PHYS 2326 or PHYS 3342). (3-0) Y
