Through funding of National Science Foundation we have developed some novel experiments that present process science principles suitable for a variety of chemical engineering core courses. These experiments are cost effective and represent some of the emerging areas: polymer processing, food processing, environmental reactor design, fluidization, membrane separation. These experiments have been utilized by chemical engineering faculty at a unique hands-on industrially integrated NSF workshop on Novel Process Science and Engineering conducted at Rowan University. We have integrated these experiments into our curriculum so that students can see chemical engineering principles in action and therefore improve the quality of education.
