The problem of fluid viscosity management: An interdisciplinary approach to a community-based problem emphasizing undergraduate engineering research


The nature and overview of the fluid viscosity management project, undergraduate engineering students contributions to the project and the benefits to engineering students and community health care are discussed. The project represents service learning (SL) with community-based research (CBR) and outcomes research. The benefits of the project to undergraduate engineering students and the community can be subdivided into four categories such as technical, non-technical, integration of knowledge and community services. Addressing interdisciplinary community-based problems during undergraduate engineering education benefits the community and students, promotes better decisions processes and facilitates the integrative nature of quality education.
