Description: A coursework sequence for chemical engineering undergraduates is offered by the Colloids, Polymers and Surfaces (CPS) Program at Carnegie Mellon University to provide education about technology applications in nanomaterials, macromolecules and interfaces. This program has developed and improved over the last 30 years for two main reasons: continued interest from industry to hire graduates with this background and the sustained expertise and commitment of faculty in these research areas. The coursework includes the physical chemistry of colloids and polymers coupled with an intensive lab experience that covers classical physical characterization methods. The lab experience also includes exposure to examples of relevant products and processes used in industry. Recently, the program was expanded to a minor in Colloids, Polymers and Surfaces (CPS) and is available to all engineering majors in the college of engineering at Carnegie Mellon. A short review of the program content will be presented. Assessment of the program will include input from employers and graduates of the program. This paper describes how a novel program to enhance undergraduate education in engineering developed because of an alliance that was formed between industry and the research university.
