Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
Classification of defects as point, line, surface or volume types. Geometrical and crystallographic aspects of defects. Defects in metallic, ionic and covalently bonded crystal structures. Physical, chemical, electronic and magnetic aspects of defects. Field quantities and forces associated with defects. Novel defects in nanostructured materials and semicrystalline materials.

The change in prerequisites reflects an earlier change to the MSE curriculum requiring students to earn a C or better in MSE 201.  A curriculum concentration in biomaterials was also introduced, and students in this curriculum take MSE/BME 203 in place of MSE 201.
