**CHEM3916 Membranes, Self Assembly and Surfaces(Adv)**

**PHYS3039 Quantum Physics/Comp. Physics and Lab**

*This unit of study does not have Data Audit Committee approval*

The module on Computational Physics uses a mixture of lectures and computational lab sessions to explore problem solving using computers. It covers numerical schemes for solving ordinary and partial differential equations, with emphasis on choosing the best method to suit the problem, and on understanding numerical accuracy and stability. All coding is done in MATLAB, and no programming experience is assumed beyond that covered in Intermediate Physics.

In the Laboratory Classes, students will choose from a range of experiments that aim to give them an appreciation of the analytical, technical and practical skills required to conduct modern experimental work.

**PHYS3939 Quantum Physics/Comp. Phys. and Lab (Adv)**

*This unit of study does not have Data Audit Committee approval*

**PHYS3099 Stat. Mechanics/Cond. Matter and Lab**

The lectures on Condensed Matter Physics provide a basic introduction to condensed matter systems, specifically the physics that underlies the electromagnetic, thermal, and optical properties of solids. The course draws on basic quantum theory and statistical mechanics and considers recent discoveries and new developments in semiconductors, nanostructures, magnetism, and superconductivity.

In the Laboratory Classes, students will choose from a range of experiments that aim to give them an appreciation of the analytical, technical and practical skills required to conduct modern experimental work.

**MECH3361 Mechanics of Solids 2**

At the end of this unit students will have a good understanding of the following: applicability of the theories and why so; how and why to do stress analysis; why we need equations of motion/equilibrium; how and why to do strain analysis; why we need compatibility equations; why Hooke`s law, why plasticity and how to do elastic and plastic analysis; how and why to do mechanics modelling; how to describe boundary conditions for complex engineering problems; why and how to solve a mechanics model based on a practical problem; why and how to use energy methods for stress and deformation analysis; why and how to do stress concentration analysis and its relation to fracture and service life of a component/structure; how and why to do fundamental plastic deformation analysis; how and why the finite element method is introduced and used for stress and deformation analysis.

The students are expected to develop the ability of solving engineering problems by comprehensively using the skills attained above. The students will get familiar with finite element analysis as a research and analysis tool for various real-life problems.

**MECH3362 Materials 2**

*This unit of study does not have Data Audit Committee approval*

At the end of this unit students should have the capability to select proper materials for simple engineering design.

Course content will include: short-term and long-term mechanical properties; introductory fracture and fatigue mechanics, dislocations; polymers and polymer composite materials; ceramics and glasses; structure-property relationships; selection of materials in mechanical design.
