You may have noticed that older online advising manuals refer to an “Introduction to Materials Chemistry” course. This course is no longer offered.
Please register for the course 030.101 Introductory Chemistry. This course will fulfill the intro to chemistry requirement.
Neither the Mechanical Engineering nor Engineering Mechanics degrees require the Intro to Chemistry Lab, so it is not necessary to take the lab section of the course.
The Mechanical Engineering department has no recommendations about the type of computer to purchase. It seems that our students prefer Mac iOS systems and Windows-based systems equally well. The University offers a discount student rate for laptops and other hardware.
Visit the JHU Mechanical Engineering “Top 12 – Undergraduate” page’s section on Computing and select the “Computers and Software” tab for info on this software.
Vice Dean Michael Falk tells us: “Under university policy, every semester must have 13 days of Monday classes, 13 days of Tuesday classes, etc. Due to holidays and semester breaks, we have typically met this requirement by converting a calendar Thursday into a day where Monday classes meet. For the past few years, this has happened on the last Thursday before fall break.
“The “extra” day of Monday classes will take place on the very first day of classes, Thursday, August 30, as noted on the academic calendar. Classes will meet as normally scheduled throughout the rest of the semester.”
This means that only on Thursday, August 30 you will go to your Monday classes. After that, you will attend classes on the day of the week that corresponds to the calendar.
