NANOLAB at The University of Texas at Austin: A Model for Interdisciplinary Undergraduate Science and Engineering Education
Heitsch, Andrew T.; Ekerdt, John G.; Korgel, Brian A.
Chemical Engineering Education, v43 n3 p225-231 Sum 2009
The University of Texas at Austin has developed an upper-division undergraduate laboratory called "NANOLAB" to introduce undergraduate science and engineering students to nanoscale science and engineering (NSE) concepts. The NANOLAB is not a stand-alone course offered by a specific department, but rather a laboratory station--or hub--that interfaces with existing "traditional" laboratory courses across both the Colleges of Engineering and Natural Sciences. The chemical engineering department played a central role in developing the NANOLAB, which is designed to provide close to 1,000 undergraduate students per year with a hands-on introduction to NSE fundamentals.
