Quarter Taken: Fall 2016 Submitted Dec. 13, 2016 Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Kasko runs an interesting class. There is one midterm and one final, plus a group project which runs for the entire quarter and has several components. Your group (3-5 people) gives two initial presentations plus a final presentation as well as a short written report. The group project is essentially theorizing a novel implant or some sort of biomaterial that can be used to solve a current clinical problem. Depending on your group members (you choose your group), this can be a really fascinating project (or really difficult). Lectures are fairly interesting, some days they get boring but I generally liked the material. It starts out with materials science basics, moves into common materials used as implants and their properties/uses, and finishes on the body's reaction to implants. There are no homework assignments to key you in to what she thinks is important, so that made it quite difficult to study for tests but pretty easy/minimal workload when it's not time for a midterm or final.
Basically, if you're interested in the implants side of materials science, this is a great class to take. Nothing is handed to you, so you better have good study skills, but it's quite interesting and I would recommend it.
