Interdisciplinary faculty from Physics, Biology and Electrical and Computer Engineering, (ECE) have created a sequence of three stand-alone 300-level general education lecture courses in nanotechnology with one supporting laboratory course, with the support of National Science Foundation funding through the nanotechnology Undergraduate Education initiative. These three lecture courses can be taken by non-majors as science courses for General Education credit and are tailored to support interaction between STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and non-STEM students, who will take them together. The ECE and Biology courses have each run once and course feedback and analyses are summarized here.
