NSF-NUE: Enhancing Undergraduate Students' Learning and Research Experiences through Handson Experiments on Bio-nanoengineering.We have completed five objectives of this project; (i) developed and implemented biomedicalnanotechnology modules in existing bioengineering courses, (ii) developed a team-based biomedicalnanotechnology course, (iii) developed a semester long research experience course related to biomedicalnanotechnology, and (iv) developing an Interdisciplinary Bionano Engineering Certificate Program(BECP) at NCA&T. Content assessment and student satisfaction were measured through the use of preand post-test satisfaction surveys in developed courses. Students were asked Likert scale questions andopen-ended questions related to their experience with the course and the learning module. Studentsatisfaction was measured through the use of focus groups conducted by the Educational Assessment andAdministrative Coordinator for Engineering Research Center’s Education and Outreach Program. Resultsfrom these assessments found an equal or greater percentage of students answered the questions correctlyon the post-assessment. This approach has impacted more than 65 undergraduate students from NCA&Twith one veteran undergraduate student and one middle school science teacher with veteran status.
