    Abstract

    This addresses the question, 'To what degree can design projects integrated into the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (ChBE) curriculum affect student confidence in their design skills and perceptions of ChBE as a whole?' To answer this question, students were evaluated on their confidence with engineering design and their satisfaction with ChBE as a discipline before and after the design projects, as well as their perceived learning outcomes after completing the design projects.
