MIT Short Course Multiscale Materials Design 2018

Markus J. Buehler's picture


I’ll again offer the Multiscale Materials Design short course at MIT this summer, June 11-15, 2018. Registration is now open at Participants will receive an MIT certificate following the one-week course.  I have a limited number of fellowships available for postdocs and graduate students, please email me if you are interested (mbuehler@MIT.EDU).

Please help spread the word and share with colleagues and friends who may be interested in attending. I’ve again made several improvements this year and will cover new topics, including the use of machine learning and artificial intelligence for materials design, as well as more translational components to connect disparate fields of materials and structural design including additive manufacturing. I am looking forward to an exciting week this summer! 

As the demand for high-performance materials with superior properties, flexibility and resilience grows, a new design paradigm from the molecular scale upwards has revolutionized our ability to create novel materials, and is being fueled by transformative progress in additive manufacturing that allows us to move from a computer model to physical product. This course covers the science, technology, and state-of-the-art in atomistic, molecular, and multiscale modeling, synthesis, and characterization, as well as a variety of manufacturing methods to control structure of materials from the molecular to the macroscale, within the framework of materiomics. The course introduces a variety of computational tools that range from multiscale modeling to the use of machine learning and artificial intelligence in materials design and how can be coupled to manufacturing methods.  

Through lectures and hands-on labs, participants will learn how superior material properties in nature and biology can be mimicked in bioinspired materials for applications in new technology. Bridging vast hierarchies of length- and time-scales, this course trains participants in applications to polymers, metals, ceramics as well as composites and sustainable construction materials. The goal of this new approach is to construct, in a bottom-up manner, atomically-precise products through the use of molecular design and manufacturing, allowing the fabrication a vast array of designs.
