The attendees at the 2003 and 2004 AIChE National Student Conferences were used to meet objectives for courses at all levels of the chemical engineering curriculum at the University of Kentucky Extended Campus Programs. Students from multiple courses were assigned roles as part of a start-up bio-tech or nano-tech company with indecisive management. Their role was to determine ahead of the conference a product or process in which the company should engage, keeping in mind the opportunities available at the conference. Upon their return, the teams of students prepared reports summarizing their proposal and findings, which were counted as homework assignments.
