Abstract:

We describe the Nano Engineering Minor Option (NEMO) program for undergraduate students in the College of Engineering of the University of Houston developed with the support of the National Science Foundation Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education project. The NEMO program is the integration and expansion of the existing nanotechnology courses into a comprehensive nanoengineering curriculum. The program is designed to reach out to a much larger group of undergraduate students in a coordinated manner than the efforts of individual faculty members allow. The team spearheading the program development has taken advantage of the synergies between the existing undergraduate education infrastructure and the state-of-the-art nanotechnology research programs at the College of Engineering. The 15 credit-hour NEMO program offers comprehensive instruction in nanoengineering, designed as a structured undergraduate curriculum available to students across several engineering disciplines. Furthermore, the program outreach and its success has resulted in the establishment of a sister program at the University of Texas at Brownsville (UTB).
