- Presentation of quantum mechanics and electronic properties of solids are presented from the viewpoint of classical physics. This approach allows the student to become familiar with the mathematics necessary for quantum mechanics before being exposed to its difficult fundamental concepts.
- Balanced use of quantum chemistry and quantum physics. especially suitable for students interested in polymers and ceramics.
- Strong focus on optical properties of solids. A topic most students find of interest (why grass is green, why copper is red, etc.).
- Frequent use of actual engineering applications to justify the development of necessary math and physics.
- Deeper discussion of magnetic and superconducting materials, particularly their structure- sensitive engineering properties.
