Design Project on Controlled-Release Drug Delivery Devices: Implementation, Management, and Learning Experiences
A design project that focuses on the subject of controlled-release drug delivery devices is presented for use in an undergraduate course on mass transfer. The purpose of the project is to introduce students to the various technologies used in the fabrication of drug delivery systems and provide a practical design exercise for understanding the principles of mass transfer. The valuable learning experiences gained from the implementation and management of the project have been documented. It is hoped that this documentation could provide some references for managing other similar types of course design projects.
