The Materials Genome Assessment (3 Credits)
Class: 1-4 PM, M-F, July 2–20, 2018
This course provides a pedagogical introduction to computational modeling. Computational modelling is used in a wide range of applications, such as material science, bio-medical engineering, finance, etc. In particular, scientific modeling can be used to accelerate the discovery of new materials (The so-called “materials genome” project): nowadays, simple physical equations are implemented in computer software, enabling researchers to carry out “virtual” experiments with predictive capabilities. The course will provide the students with an awareness of the importance of material discovery and its societal impact, and during hands-on sessions we will provide the students with a tutorial for Materials Studio, a modern computational tool suite. The course will consist of both lectures and practical sessions in the computer room. We will also have discussion sessions and group work, where material discovery is discussed in the wider context.
Suitable for Year 3, 4 & Graduate Students
