Welcome to CBE TV!

Chemical and Biochemical Engineering students and faculty are engaged in a broad spectrum of active learning initiatives that foster research and design skills, explore opportunities in science, engineering, and technology careers, and provide new curricula in engineering and science.

CBE TV offers an insider's perspective of some of these initiatives.

Introduction to Engineering Design:

The department has been instrumental in revising the Introduction to Engineering Design course from a traditional lecture and design-on-paper course, to an active learning, hands-on and project based learning engineering design course. The design teams are required to not only research, design, construct, evaluate, test, and present their product, but they must also develop a mathematical model of their projects performance; to demonstrate student understanding of the fundamental engineering principles that make their design work.

INSPIRES

The INcreasing Student Participation, Interest and Recruitment in Engineering and Science curriculum, funded by the National Science Foundation, provides new curricula that incorporate hands-on experiences and inquiry-based learning with real world engineering design exercises that target the International Technology Education Association Standards, as well as national standards in science and mathematics.  

You Can Be Anything

A four-minute, high-quality video, produced by academy Award winning, Video Press; and music by Michael Bacon; encouraging young women to study science and technology was developed (and funded by NSF) as an entrée to a discussion of women’s opportunities in science, engineering, and technology careers.
