Introduction to advanced materials, their properties, structures, modeling and applications in different areas. The materials include metals, ceramics, polymers, composites, semiconductors, nanomaterials, biomimetic materials, smart materials and cellular materials. Emphases are on the principles of chemical kinetics, bonding, molecular mechanics, quantum mechanics, electronic properties, surfaces and boundaries. Special attention will be given to novel materials applications in electrical, electronic, optical, mechanical, biomedical and civil engineering.

Introduces the non-ECE major to some of the basic concepts in Electrical Engineering. The laws of circuit theory and their applications in the analysis of both DC and AC circuits consisting of passive components (resistors, capacitors, and inductors) are introduced. The concepts of power, impedance, reactance, complex power, phasors, and frequency response are discussed. Semiconductor devices (diodes and transistors) are introduced, analyzed, and applied in basic circuits. Use of available computer software to simulate and evaluate circuit performance is required.

The relation between the atomic or micro structure of engineering materials and their properties. Structures of metals, ceramics, polymers and composites are introduced. Experiments on equilibrium diagrams, metallographic structures, property changes of metals are included.

Dr. Caiwei Shen received the B.S. degree in electronic engineering and the M.S. degree in microelectronics from Tsinghua University in 2010 and 2013, respectively. He received the Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering from University of California at Berkeley in 2018. He joined the Mechanical Engineering department at University of Massachusetts Dartmouth as assistant professor in the same year. He is teaching materials science courses for both undergraduate and graduate students. His research focuses on materials and technologies for energy-related applications and various sensors and actuators. He is currently interested in developing flexible and wearable supercapacitors and multifunctional structural energy storage devices. He is also interested in the synthesis of nanomaterials and the development of biomimetic or bio-related sensors and actuators.
