Courses taught by Prof. Qian Wang:
1. “Advanced Mathematics” D for Undergraduate students 
This course mainly covers the fundamental concepts
of calculus: limiting behaviors, difference quotients and derivative, applications
of derivative, differentials, indefinite integrals, definite integrals, and
applications of integrals. 
2. “Computational Materials Science & Engineering” for undergraduate students 
This course introduces the fundamental concepts and theories of multiscale modeling of materials, including an introduction to quantum chemical calculations, introduction to quantum mechanical modeling (Hartree, HartreeFock and Density Functional theory), Molecular Dynamics and Monte Carlo methods; introduction to the common modeling software (Dmol3, VASP & Gaussian), and six projects and practices.

3. “Quantum Mechanics for Materials Science” for undergraduate students 
This course aims to teach quantum mechanics to students with engineering background. Quantum mechanics was once mostly of interest to physicists, chemists and other basic scientists. Now the concepts and techniques of quantum mechanics are essential in many areas of engineering and science such as materials science, nanotechnology, electronic devices, and photonics. Quantum mechanics provides both the conceptual and the practical basis for almost all the branches of modern physics, materials science, renewable energy science, and electronics, because all the matters in the world are made up of atoms that can only be well described by quantum mechanics. This course is a substantial introduction to quantum mechanics and how to use it. It is specifically designed to be accessible to students over a wide range of science and engineering backgrounds 
4. “Lowdimensional Functional Materials” for graduate students 
This course covers selected topics in advanced computational lowdimensional functional materials, and is intended for graduate students in Physics, Advanced Materials, or Engineering. The objective is to provide enough fundamental knowledge needed for conducting research in computational condensed matter, computational chemical physics or engineering. Quantum theory and Solid State Physics are important for understanding Advanced Theory of Solids, however, I will try to use them in such a way that even those, who do not have been exposed to these areas, would be able to follow the materials.
