Course Description 
EE 471 is offered to students
who want to understand basic quantum mechanics and the quantum effects
underlying areas of modern technology such as semiconductor and quantum well
devices. The course will provide students with an introduction to quantum
mechanics, an understanding of basic quantum mechanics, and an understanding
of the applications of quantum mechanics.
EE 471 is designed to introduce Electrical Engineering students to quantum mechanics and its applications, prepare Materials Science majors for Ph.D. screening in the area of quantum mechanics, and to provide the quantum mechanics prerequisite for Materials Science 501 (solid state).
