    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I came into this course, not knowing what material science was. I knew, from my high school experience, I wasn't the biggest fan of chemistry. Yet, I found myself completely entranced by the material in this course - pardon the pun. Professor Burns compiled and taught this intro course in such a way that I learned to appreciate and understand both material science and chemistry.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a completely new perspective on the world. We started from the very basics - atoms - and moved all the way up to high-level concepts such as why structures fail and how electronics work.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class (Professor Burns is a great lecturer). Read the textbook. Get a study partner or group to make sure you understand the material.
