This course introduces students to elements of science behind cooking, cuisine preparation and the enjoyment of food. The ultimate goal is to help students recognize the importance of scientific principles being applied in everyday life, so that they will appreciate and be able to apply some of these principles in their future cooking practice, including the manipulation of human perception.
This course will focus on the theory, design and operation of commercial nuclear power reactors. The course will also touch on contemporary issues regarding nuclear power generation including: the nuclear fuel cycle, the economics of nuclear power, and nuclear non-proliferation.
In this course, you will learn how to characterize the energy state of a system and the mechanisms for transferring energy from one system to another. These are the tools necessary to understand stationary and transportation power systems from small scale, like batteries, to large scale, like nuclear power plants.
Mechanics ReView presents a college-level introductory mechanics class using a strategic problem-solving approach.
Explore motion in the real world using modern tools and techniques (video capture and analysis, computer modeling) guided by fundamental physics principles.
An introduction to quantum physics with emphasis on topics at the frontiers of research, and developing understanding through exercise.
Chemistry is one of the central physical sciences. As a Chemistry Major, you will explore matter at its most basic—as a collection of atoms.
To earn the equivalent of a minor in Chemistry, you must complete four broad introductory-level courses as well as two chemistry electives of your choice.
