Extent: 20–25 cr
Please check the minimum scope of the minor from your own programme.
Professor in charge: Mady Elbahri
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 study plan, you should verify that you have the prerequisites needed for the courses.
After Functional Materials minor program student can:
- Explain solid state structure and phenomena, including mechanical, electrical, magnetic, optical, thermal behaviour of metals, polymers, ceramics and composites
- Evaluate material properties of metals, ceramics, polymers, composites, biomaterials and nanomaterials
- Design new materials and predict their behaviour
- Understand the engineering possibilities and limitations of new materials
