A MOOC on quantum mechanics for nonscientists launched on April 18, 2017 on EdX. This course was developed by Prof. Freericks and two undergraduate students, who made the computer-based tutorials and simulations. The course development was also supported by CNDLS and NSF.
Undergraduate students are invited to apply for the physics department's 2017 REU program. During this 10-week summer program, participants engage in a focused research project in materials physics, working closely with a faculty mentor.
