MSE 307 – Materials Laboratory I (Fall Semester)
For class schedules and times, please see the course catalog here.
Currently taught by Dr. Jessica TerBush (Lecturer, MatSE)
MSE 307 consists of six different experiments: Thermal Stresses and Strains, Thermoelectric Energy Conversion, Differential Scanning Calorimetry, Absorption and Humidity Sensing, Pyrometry, and Phase Equilibria using Optical Microscopy. Each of these experiments builds on concepts the students have covered in their intro Materials Science and Engineering courses. Students rotate through each of the six experiments, spending two weeks working on each one, for a total of about six hours per experiment. They have an additional week to write their report once the experiment is completed. A sample syllabus is included here: Syllabus – MSE 307.
