Materials Science and Engineering Learning Center

The Materials Science and Engineering Learning Center (MSELC) provides assistance to students in materials science courses. Coaches are available to help with understanding and application of course principles. Currently, we fully support MSE 2100 and MSE 2110. We also assist students with core materials science and engineering concepts found in all undergraduate and graduate courses.

MSE 2100 - Introduction to Materials Science and Engineering

Introduction to the structure, processing, properties, and performance of engineering materials, including metals, polymers, glasses, ceramics, and composites. Presents case studies covering selection of materials, component design, and analysis of component failures.

  • Credits: 3.0
  • Lec-Rec-Lab: (3-0-0)
  • Semesters Offered: Fall, Spring, Summer
  • Pre-Requisite(s): CH 1112 or CH 1122 or (CH 1150 and CH 1151) or (CH 1160 and CH 1161)

MSE 2110 - Introduction to Materials Science and Engineering II

Course is designed to address core competencies in the materials discipline. Materials processing methods are used as a vehicle to master concepts such as crystallography, imperfections, phase diagrams, microstructure, and development of mathematical skills and introduction to computational tools.

  • Credits: 3.0
  • Lec-Rec-Lab: (0-2-3)
  • Semesters Offered: Fall, Spring
  • Pre-Requisite(s): (MY 2100 or MSE 2100) and (ENG 1100 or ENG 1101)

The MSELC began as a series of help sessions for MSE 2100 (formerly MY 2100). Alpha Sigma Mu, the materials science honors society, continued to host these sessions, which expanded into the current learning center.
