One of my relatives recommends BetterPhoto.com for photography instruction. One of these days
University System of Ohio :: Ohio GI Promise — nice work Ohio!
I started taking graduate matsci courses several years ago at the UW via the Edge program, and also took some on campus. I have found it hard to continue though as the UW materials science school doesn’t have a deep […]
Just attended the Prescott College | For the Liberal Arts and the Environment graduation and baccalaureate. What amazing ceremonies! Personal words about each student and from each student — amazing passion and diversity. The value of a small personalized college […]
Been tough to keep up with my coursework at UW this year — they just don’t have a deep distance learning curriculum, particularly in materials science, my interest area. Scanning the web for new options: * Master of Science in […]
College grads see higher starting salaries this year – Jul. 12, 2007 via The Big Picture. Engineering rules yet again. Might be a tortoise and hare thing tho, I’m not convinced the picture is the same 20 and 30 years […]
I’ve often wished I could read a sampling of history texts used in high schools worldwide — it would be educational to see how students in different societies are programmed. For instance in the WSJ today, some of the messages […]
Trying to figure out what course to take this fall… * EE graduate seminar on energy — not sure what typical content would be, but could be relevant to investing side of my life * Power Systems Economics — also […]
Found via StumbleUpon: * Google sightseeing — a great way to see satellite photos of interesting world sites * Test everything — a jillion tools for testing the construction, seo, and other characteristics of your site * Computer Architecture — […]
Please please please — pretend you are a student and go out and attend a week’s worth of college visits at other institutions. I think you will find that there is a lot of mind numbing repetition across the presentations […]
* Wikipedia of course * Nice RPI presentation pointed to by wikipedia * HEMT history
Very helpful compendium of semiconductor info and links
Looking at some of these — want a 1-2 week program: * NC State. We’ve been to, it was pretty good, albeit a mite warm and sticky in the summer. * Arizona. * Michigan State * Colorado * Berkeley * […]
For homework in my class this term * NSM Archive – Gallium Nitride (GaN) * Ditto for AlN, BN, and InN * Office of Naval Research pages on GaN, BN, AlN, InN
relevant to the course I am taking right now — Theory aims to describe fundamental properties of materials from PhysOrg.com Gold is shiny, diamonds are transparent, and iron is magnetic. Why is that? The answer lies with a material ’s […]
Star-Telegram | 02/12/2007 | The next class fits in your pocket — for my next UW EDGE course i need to investigate slamming the lectures onto the ipod. And if i jam the pdfs onto the sony reader, a lightweight […]
* Great sequence of pages on quantum wells of various dimensions, shapes, and potentials * Another great set of pages on density of states this stuff is mind twisting.
Supplementary notes, Quantum Mechanics oh and who can live without the britney spears’ guide to semiconductor physics? the internet is awesome.
Some books I’ve been reading to help me in my coursework: * “Quantum Mechanics Demystified”:amazon. High ranking on amazon but really terrible as an introduction. Very little conceptual discussion, just lots of math wanking. Maybe useful as a reference. * […]
Materials Science 565 — Electron Theory of Materials. Way more quantum theory than I ever knew. Definitely getting my educational butt kicked. First homework question as an example: bq. You were asked to design a composite material consisting of small […]
