Proposed Course Activities for NUE Students

  1. Preparing course modules and related problems sets on nanoscience for students enrolled in the first-year physics sequence and in chemistry courses.

  2. Developing course modules and problems sets for the existing two-semester introductory course, Fundamentals of Engineering.

  3. Offer a course in the required, first-semester, first-year general education course called Perspectives on Inquiry, exploring nanoscience and technology.

  4. Introduce a new, team-taught, interdisciplinary course, Fundamentals of Nanoscale Science and Engineering.

  5. A Nanotechnology Speaker/Lecture Series

  6. Develop modules or units in second-year courses that focus on the science and engineering applications of nanotechnology.

  7. Use an existing social science course to provide an opportunity to examine in detail the societal implications nanoscience and technology.

  8. Undergraduate research experiences.

  9. Development of Independent-study Courses for sophomore and juniors to expose the students on various aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
