The range of applications and nature of engineering science seems to have changes so much in the past decade that we must now redefine elements of the curriculum. New frontiers in chemical engineering such as nano- and micro- science and technology and biomolecular engineering that were once confined to research are now "new frontiers" for chemical engineering education. How do we define chemical engineering as we enter the 21st Century? How will nano-science, bio, micro-technology, environmental issues, energy conservation, homeland security, communication infrastructure, etc. impact on what the undergraduate degree in chemical engineering is or what will become? Join us to hear how some departments are addressing these issues.
