Through funding of the National Science Foundation (NSF), some novel experiments have been developed that present process science principles suitable for a variety of chemical engineering and process-related core courses. These experiments are cost effective and represent some of the emerging areas: polymer processing, food processing, environmental reactor design, fluidization, and 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 process principles in action and therefore improve the quality of education.
