Abstract:

This paper reports the development of nanotechnology courses at The George Washington University (GW). The program is intended to prepare undergraduate and graduate engineering students for careers or future studies in the design of systems and devices employing bionanotechnology. Four faculty members from the mechanical and aerospace engineering, electrical and computer engineering, and civil and environmental engineering departments at GW collaborated to develop new courses on nanotechnology, with laboratory components and emphasis on biological applications. With institutional support and funding from an NSF nanotechnology undergraduate education (NUE) grant, we attempted to reach undergraduate and beginning graduate students to enrich their education and provide research opportunities in nanotechnology. Teaching materials from several courses we developed (syllabi, PowerPoint slide sets, homework, exams) are available at http://gwin.gwu.edu.
