Gateway Engineering Education Coalition

The undergraduate engineering educational experience can be enhanced when students get to see and do things that compliment traditional class room lecture. To accomplish this, the Gateway Materials Group has developed education modules that demonstrate materials science and engineering concepts at introductory and intermediate levels. These modules contain hands-on laboratory and instrumentation procedures, multi-media instruction modules, and video demonstrations. Educators can pick and choose these tools, view or download them, according to the requirements of their university’s curricula

There are 13 projects in this section.
