Advances in Engineering Education, v3 n1 Win 2012
Textbook style problems including detailed solutions introducing pharmaceutical topics at the level of an introductory chemical engineering course have been created. The problems illustrate and teach subjects which students would learn if they were to pursue a career in pharmaceutical engineering, including the unique terminology of the field, common unit operations, calculations pertaining to drug manufacturing, and some of the specific concerns of the industry such as regulations and testing. Over seventy problems have been created; selected problems have been administered to students and their impact evaluated. Students demonstrated significant gains in knowledge of pharmaceutical engineering topics.
