In order to incorporate the principles of sustainability into the Chemical Engineering curriculum, educational resources are needed for course instructors. Over the last few years, the AIChE Sustainable Engineering Forum has worked to develop educational modules for 5 core courses in the chemical engineering curriculum. The current Chair of the Education Committee of the Sustainable Engineering Forum will provide an overview of the modules developed, and provide information on how course instructors can access these modules through the Sustainable Engineering Forum website.

Modules have been developed for the following undergraduate courses: Separations, Thermodynamics, Engineering Economics, Transport Processes (Heat Transfer, Mass Transfer and Fluid Flow) and Reactor Design. Each of the modules consists of an instructor overview of the engineering topic, focused on how sustainability can be integrated into the course. Additionally, each module includes 10 ? 15 sample sustainable engineering problems with solutions. Modules will be made available free of charge to course instructors.
