Integrating biofuels education into chemical engineering curriculum Q. Peter He1 and Jin Wang2 1 Department of Chemical Engineering, Tuskegee University, Tuskegee, AL 36088 2 Department of Chemical Engineering, Auburn University, Auburn, AL 36849AbstractThis is a project funded by national science foundation (NSF) division of undergraduateeducation (DUE) under the transforming undergraduate education in science (TUES) program.The primary goal of this project is to create educational materials that systematically integratebiofuels technology into undergraduate chemical engineering curriculum. The ultimate goal is tohelp prepare a technologically advanced workforce and innovative researchers for the biofuelstechnology field.Two years ago at ASEE, we discussed the need of biofuels education in engineering and the gapbetween advanced biofuels research and undergraduate biofuels education. We also presentedour proposed modular approach. This year, we plan to present the classroom and web moduleswe have developed. We will also present our experiences with integrating the modules into twochemical engineering courses: thermodynamics and reaction engineering for two semesters:Spring and Fall of 2014. Finally, we will discuss potential ways to disseminate the modules sothat other professors and institutions can use them.
