Code: CHEM3034

Extent: 20–25 cr

Language: English

Professor in charge: Sami Franssila

Target group: Master's students

Application procedure: Open for all students of Aalto University.

Quotas and restrictions: Please note, that in some courses the number of participants can be limited. Then major students (Functional Materials) have the priority.

Prerequisites: While making your studyplan, you should verify that you have the prerequisites needed for the courses.

Learning outcomes

After Functional Materials minor program student can:

  1. Explain solid state structure and phenomena, including mechanical, electrical, magnetic, optical, thermal behaviour of metals, polymers, ceramics and composites
  2. Evaluate material properties of metals, ceramics, polymers, composites, biomaterials and nanomaterials
  3. Design new materials and predict their behaviour
  4. Understand the engineering possibilities and limitations of new materials

Content and structure of the minor

For the minor (20–25 credits) all students have to take the same compulsory studies of 10 cr. Additionally the student needs to select 2–3 courses (10–15 cr) from Functional Materials major's compulsory courses. Please check the list below.
