Education Overview

The main focus of UWEB Education and Outreach is to mesh with one of the overall missions of the center: to fully integrate research, education and technology transfer and outreach. Guided by the UWEB Education Committee, UWEB's education program is the focal point that enhances the research experience of our undergraduates, graduate students and post docs. 

The goal of UWEB's education program is to:

  • Graduate a diverse group of students as interdisciplinary engineering leaders, educators and entrepreneurs who are more effective in a global economy
  • Integrate next-generation engineered systems research into new curriculum development
  • Influence a change in the culture of the learning and teaching of engineering at the University of Washington and nationally through new courses, certificate programs and seminars
  • Increase the diversity of graduating students and the engineering workforce through outreach to predominantly minority institutions
  • Impact K-12 education and contribute to curriculum enrichment by sharing the excitement of science and engineering education with diverse populations of K-12 teachers and students
  • Nurture an active involvement of industry partners in all aspects of education 
  • Disseminate education innovations nationally using multimedia and WWW as delivery mechanisms

The primary objective of our education programs is to ensure that our students receive an excellent grounding in the cross-disciplinary, state of the art research towards creating biomaterials that heal. Programs extend across the three thrust areas and involve graduate and undergraduate students and post docs. UWEB education efforts ensure the Center's commitment to graduate students who have a holistic training, which includes creativity, ethics, entrepreneurship and teamwork. In our outreach efforts, the focus is the establishment of lasting relationships between UWEB and other University of Washington and national programs. UWEB is a key player in bringing science and engineering education to Puget Sound area public schools. Outreach activities to a diverse population of K-12 students and teachers actively involve students, faculty, our industry partners and staff.
