    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a requirement for Materials Science and Engineering majors, so whether or not to take it usually isn't a choice. This is really a crash course on the very broad and deep subject of materials structure, and focuses mainly on crystallography. Professor Hufnagel moves at a pretty fast pace to ensure that students get the most possible out of class, as it is such a deep subject, but that also means that it's necessary to keep up with the material, or you may fall behind easily.

    Course highlights:

    This class mainly goes into topics related to crystallography, including atomic packing and crystal structures, crystal symmetry, diffraction patterns, among others.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The professor gives out a lot of handouts, readings, and practice problems that are helpful for understanding the material. As the entire grade comes down to exams, being able to do the problems is the most important part of getting a good grade in this class. For that, there's no substitute for doing the practice exams. He provides about 10 years worth of practice exams, and often pulls questions from old exams. Going through the old exams and understanding the concepts behind the problems can guarantee a good grade in this class, but it's important to keep up. This isn't a class where you can cram 2 days before the exam and expect to do well.
