This Impact of Materials on Society (IMOS) course explores the connections between the discovery of new materials such as ceramics, glass, concrete, metals, plastics, semiconductors etc., and the development of technologies and social structures worldwide. To see these connections, the course fuses basic concepts in materials science and engineering with perspectives and methods from anthropology, history, English, classics, literature and sociology.
The current IMOS curriculum is available as a free open-source undergraduate course on the MRS website.
