Graduate School of Engineering and Center for the Advancement of Research and Education Exchange Networks (CAREN) launch MOOC courses.

December 14, 2020

Graduate School of Engineering and Center for the Advancement of Research and Education Exchange Networks(CAREN), Department of Teaching and Learning Support, and Center for Education in Liberal Arts and Science launch “Introduction to Computational Materials Design” in December 2020, and “Functional Polymeric Materials” in February 2021 on edX.

Introduction to Computational Materials Design is Osaka University’s 5th MOOC course co-developed by International Priority Graduate Program on Applied and Engineering Physics and Quantum Engineering Design Program (Prof. Yoshitada Morikawa, Prof. Tamio Oguchi, Assoc. Prof. Kazunori Sato, and Assoc. Prof. DIÑO Wilson Agerico Tan) .

The purpose of this course is to analyze the present status and possibilities of computational materials design and to implement a new paradigm of material science by learning basic cutting-edge computational methods and designing materials using quantum simulation program codes. The course consists of eight sessions with seven instructors, a five-week-long instructor-led course. This course starts on December 17, 2020.

Functional Polymeric Materials is Osaka University’s 6th MOOC course developed by faculties of Division of Applied Chemistry (Prof. Hiroshi Uyama, Prof. Akinori Saeki, Prof. Michiya Matsusaki, and Assoc. Prof. Taka-Aki Asoh).
