Particle Transport, Deposition and Removal- A Research Based Curriculum Development Goodarz Ahmadi, Clarkson University, Potsdam, NY, 13699-5725, USA Significant research progress in the areas of particle transport, deposition andremoval has been made in the last two decades. Particle transport, deposition andremoval occur in many natural and industrial processes. Microelectronic, imaging andpharmaceutical industries are a few examples for which particle transport, deposition andremoval play key roles. From air pollution and sand storms to landslide in environmentinvolve particle transport, deposition and removal. A series of courses were developed tomake the new important research findings available to seniors and first year graduatestudents in engineering departments through specialized curricula. This course seriesinvolved an integration of numerical simulations and experiments in the curriculum. Thecourse materials were made available on the web and the course was taught at twocampuses as well as on-line. These courses are composed of four modules:  Fundamentals of particle transport, dispersion, deposition, and removal.  Computational modeling of particle transport, deposition, and removal.  Experimental study of particle transport, deposition, and removal, and aerosol instrumentation.  Industrial applications of particle transport, deposition, and removal.The student learning of the course materials was assessed and influence of availability ofmaterials as well as the lectures on-line was studied.
