Abstract Understanding particle transport, deposition and removal are of crucial importance to many environmental and biological processes. In addition, many technologies that are critical for the competitiveness of the US microelectronic, imaging and pharmaceutical industries require an engineering work force that are competent in various aspect of particulate processes. The primary objective of this NSF supported combined research and curriculum development (CRCD) project is to make the results of new important research findings in this critical area available to seniors and first year graduate students in engineering through developing and offering of specialized courses. In this CRCD project a series of courses on particle transport, deposition and removal and re-entrainment was developed. The course materials are available on the web the course was taught it at two campuses simultaneously. The CRCD courses are composed of four modules: • Fundamental of particle transport, dispersion, deposition and removal. • Computational modeling of particle transport, deposition and removal. • Experimental study of particle transport, deposition and removal. • Industrial and environmental applications of particle transport, deposition and removal. In this paper, the course development project is outlined and various modules of the course are reviewed. Particular attention is given to the new application modules of the course in connection with particle transport, deposition and removal in biological and environmental applications. In this regard the connection of the course with the motto of Coulter School of Engineering on “Technology Serving Humanity” is emphasized. The results of course web evaluation is also presented and discussed.

Introduction Particle transport, deposition and removal occur in numerous environmental and biological processes. In addition, many technologies that are critical for the competitiveness of the US microelectronic, imaging and pharmaceutical industries involve extensive usage of particle transport, deposition and removal. In the recent decade, there has been significant research finding on particulate transport, deposition and removal processes. The primary objective of this combined research and curriculum
