The aim of the project is to increase the number of pre-engineering students that choose an engineering major; increase the number of students that choose the materials science option; increase the number of students participating in undergraduate research; and prepare students to pursue graduate studies and/or enter the workforce. To achieve the goals, the project will: infuse modules and laboratory experiments in materials science into fourteen existing undergraduate courses in chemical and biomedical engineering; and involve undergraduate students and faculty in research investigating the consequences of structure-function relationships in nanoparticle suspensions. The project was just awarded on August 2016 and we will report on our progress till date.
