This is my personal web page at UDel, am using Adobe DreamWeaver to create the html content. I have posted some files from my course on Polymer Materials Science and Engineering (MSE 412) from the University of Michigan. These are lectures recorded on my Gateway laptop using Camtasia Studio. The textbook for this course was "Introduction to Polymers", by R. Young and P. Lovell.
