Advanced graduate course; Fundamentals of micro and nanofabrication of biochips and lab-on-a-chips, on-chip biochemical detection methods, micro/nanofluidics, basic components of lab-on-a-chip, integration of lab-on-a-chip, and micro total analysis systems.

  • Engineering Foundations (ENG 2010), 2 credits, Project-based.                                          

Undergraduate course; Introduction to engineering and engineering technology as disciplines and occupations. Through this course, students utilize their math, science, and technology skills to solve engineering problems.


Dr. Esfandiari has been involved in the education outreach by volunteering to speak at the Women in Engineering event hosted by St. Ursula Academy to promote science and engineering careers among female high school students.

Dr. Esfandiari has been involved in NSF RET Research Experience for Teachers. This Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) is for middle and high school in-service teachers and full-time community and two/four-year college faculty members offering an Associate Degree. The RET is in the area of "Engineering Design Challenges and Research Experiences for Secondary and Community College Teachers." It is offered through the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering in the College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Cincinnati.
