1. State the fundamental properties of a plasma.
2. Relate previously introduced physical principles to that of plasmas.
3. Identify the properties of a plasma to the area of its application.
4. Critically evaluate a research paper in the area of plasma physics.
5. Describe the vacuum systems used in plasma systems.
6. Identify the physical quantities relevant to vacuum systems.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
