• ME 850AU (Solar Energy Materials): 

    Overview of materials and materials research in solar energy conversion systems, including solar thermal energy systems, photovoltaic systems, and photocatalytic processes. Provides basic principles of the planning, design, installation and operation of solar energy systems.

  • ME 398 (Thermodynamics I): 

    An introduction to the study and analysis of thermodynamics, energy, and entropy, and their interactions relevant to engineering, centered on the First and the Second Laws of thermodynamics.

  • ME 250 (Materials Engineering): 

    Introduces the basic principles behind materials science and engineering. Studies diffusion mechanical properties, failure mechanisms, phase equilibrium diagrams and heat treatment principles for steels, cast irons, and other metal alloys. Provides the scientific foundation for an understanding of the relationships among material properties, structure and performance for the classes of engineering solids.
