The successful design of complex engineering systems requires understanding physical processes that bridge multiple length and time scales. This course will introduce students to the fascinating field of multiscale modeling and provide a foundation for understanding systems/devices at a molecular, microscopic, and macroscopic levels. Through a combination of lectures, case studies and hands-on applications, students will learn (1) the principles that govern engineering systems at various length/time scales, and (2) how to develop, use, and hybridize multiscale simulation tools.
