ME 5995: Nanomaterials for Engineering Applications, 4 cr.
Prerequisites: Graduate standing in science or engineering disciplines.

This course introduces the fundamental principles needed to understand the behavior of different classes of nanomaterials, processing methods resulting in new structures, and the design and operation of novel structures and devices, which take advantage of nanoscale effects. Throughout the course we discuss the origin of size effects in controlling the properties of nanomaterials, and their application in Automotive, Aerospace, Environmental and Energy fields. Students will become familiar with interdisciplinary aspect of nanotechnology, as well as with current nanoscience developments described in the literature.

EVE 5120: Fundamentals of Battery Systems for Electric and Hybrid Vehicles Cr. 4
Prerequisites: Graduate standing in science or engineering disciplines.

Fundamental electrochemistry and engineering aspects for electric propulsion batteries, including lead acid, nickel metal hydride, and lithium ion technologies.

ME 7820: Engineering Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) Methods and Industrial Applications, 4 cr.
Prerequisites: Graduate standing in science or engineering disciplines.

This covers basic and advanced non-destructive evaluation methods used in industry. Treat in-depth the physics and engineering NDE applications of ultrasonics, vibration, acoustic emission and thermal wave sciences. Also methodologies of penetrant and eddy current diagnostics. Illustrate NDE concepts through laboratory experiments. 

ME 7260: Heat and Mass Transfer, 4 cr.
Restriction(s): Enrollment is limited to Graduate level students; enrollment limited to students in the College of Engineering (4 credits) 

Introduce transport phenomena and rate equations. Formulate heat and mass transfer problems using lumped, differential and integral formulations. Solve these problems using the method of separation of variables, partial solutions, variation of parameters, superposition, Laplace transformation and Duhamel Integral for problems with time-dependent boundary conditions. Apply these concepts to various thermal and combustion systems.
