This paper describes Rowan University's novel approach to integrating emerging technologies into the chemical engineering curriculum. Through an eight-semester project-based course sequence, every engineering student works in multidisciplinary on a series of projects, many of which are sponsored by regional industries. In addition to providing a mechanism to introduce emerging technologies, the clinics provide the students with experience in working in multidisciplinary teams, exposure to industrial projects with real deadlines and deliverables and an opportunity to develop their oral and written communication skills. Several brief case studies of clinic projects are also discussed.
