This title presents an introduction to quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics and materials science. The objective of this text is to remedy the situation in which students in materials science, electrical engineering and applied physics are taught these subjects in a disjointed manner and thus are unable to see the connection of these basic concepts to modern technology and the workings of devices. Before a topic is discussed in detail, some interesting challenges in modern technology are introduced in sections titles "Magic of Technology." At the end of the discussion, the author relates how the fundamentals discussed in the sections address the technological challenges introduced earlier.
