The pharmaceutical industry plays a key role in today’s global economy and chemical engineerscan make strong contributions to the industry. In addition, pharmaceutical process and productapplications provide an excellent vehicle to introduce students to novel technologies andexperimental design and data analysis techniques. This work focuses on the development andimplementation of interactive modular experiments, demonstrations and calculations to engagestudents and introduce them to the chemical engineering aspects of the pharmaceutical industry.This work includes particle and powder processing and drug delivery experiments anddemonstrations, pharmaceutical engineering problem sets and life cycle analysis applications.Through these experiments, demonstrations and interactive analysis experiences, students areintroduced to pharmaceutical applications, experimental design and QbD methodologies in waysthat engage and enhance learning. This work is the basis for a workshop presented at the 2012ASEE Summer School. Aspects of the workshop will be also be highlighted. This project is partof the educational/outreach activities of the NSF-ERC on Structured Organic ParticulateSystems.
