WELDING AND JOINING PROCESSES A Gateway Module Sponsored by the
National Science Foundation
Undergraduate engineering educational
experiences can be greatly enhanced when students
get to "see and do" things that compliment the traditional classroom lecture. Using funding provided by the
National Science Foundation, the Gateway
Materials Group is developing education modules that demonstrate fundamentals in materials science and engineering at the
introductory and intermediate levels.
These modules contain hands-on laboratory and instrumentation procedures, multi-media instruction
modules and video demonstrations.
Educators will ultimately be able to pick and choose from these tools based on their particular university's curricula.
