Summer School for Integrated Computational Materials Education

Director: Katsuyo Thornton

After the hiatus due to COVID, we will be back for Summer 2023 event, which will take place from June 12 to June 23, with revamped modules that include data science!  To receive future updates, please join the email list here

The 2023 application is now reviewed on a rolling basis.

Computational approaches have transformed many scientific and engineering disciplines in the last decade. While the complexity of the physics and multiscale nature of materials makes modeling challenging, modern methods of computational materials science are also beginning to produce widespread impact in the design and development of new materials. Thus, a recent survey performed and published in JOM, as well as the National Academy of Engineering Report, clearly indicates the need for integration of computational techniques into undergraduate MSE curricula. To address the challenges in this integration, the “Summer School for Integrated Computational Materials Education,” is a two-week program that includes a “crash course” on computational materials science and engineering (CMSE) and focus sessions on educational modules that can be adopted into existing core courses. Tools into undergraduate-level thermodynamics, kinetics, material physics, and mechanical behavior courses.
