Abstract

The pharmaceutical industry plays a key role in today's global economy and chemical engineers can make strong contributions to the industry. In addition, pharmaceutical process and product applications provide an excellent vehicle to introduce students to novel technologies and experimental design and data analysis techniques. This work focuses on the development and implementation of interactive modular experiments, demonstrations and calculations to engage students and introduce them to the chemical engineering aspects of the pharmaceutical industry. This work includes particle and powder processing and drug delivery experiments and demonstrations, pharmaceutical engineering problem sets and life cycle analysis applications. Through these experiments, demonstrations and interactive analysis experiences, students are introduced to pharmaceutical applications, experimental design and Quality by Design (QbD) methodologies in ways that engage and enhance learning. This work is the basis for a workshop presented at the 2012 ASEE - Chemical Engineering Division (CHED) Summer School. The interactive and self-contained workshop modules are highlighted. These modules can be easily integrated into the traditional undergraduate chemical engineering curriculum through laboratories/ demonstrations. This project is part of the educational/outreach activities of the NSF-ERC on Structured Organic Particulate Systems.
