A unique course in the theory, testing and manufacturing of fuel cells has been developed at Arixona State University in the College of Technology and Applied Sciences. The course is designed for the engineering technology graduate students, but is also accessible to advanced undergraduates. The interdisciplinary nature of the course necessitates a team-teaching approach, and faculty with backgrounds in electrochemistry, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering deliver portions of the course. The course includes a theoretical portion, but also contains a comprehensive practical portion in which the students build a membrane electrode assembly and assemble, test and characterize this assembly as a single stage proton exchange membrane fuel cell. Feedback from the students indicates a great deal of excitement over the course, and has resulted in several students deciding to concentrate their graduate work in the fuel cell area. The paper describes the first course offering in the spring of 2003.
