Undergraduate/Graduate Teaching

At NCSU, Dr. Dong teaches undergraduate courses in manufacturing, such as “Manufacturing Eng. II Automation” , and co-teaches a new undergraduate nanotechnology laboratory course “Introduction to Multidisciplinary Nanotechnology Laboratory” that was supported by a NSF Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education (NUE) project (NSF EEC-1042101).

Dr. Dong also developed and teaches graduate courses of “Micro/Nano-scale Fabrication” and “Advanced Nanomanufacturing”.

List of courses (Course materials are available on wolfware moodle)
  • ISE215: Foundations of Design & 3D Modeling for Engineers
  • ISE216: Product Development and Rapid Prototyping
  • ISE315: Introduction to Computer-Aided Manufacturing
  • ISE416: Manufacturing Eng. II Automation
  • MAE495/MSE490/ISE495: Introduction to Multidisciplinary Nanotechnology Laboratory
  • ISE 589: Digital Control for Manufacturing Automation
  • ISE 716: Automated Systems Engineering
  • ISE 718: Micro/Nano-scale Fabrication
  • ISE789-002: Advanced Nanomanufacturing
  • IE 451: Numerical Control of Manufacturing Processes (at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)


Dr. Dong’s group is active in outreach through many channels (Engineering open house, Summer camp, Nanodays, collaboration with local Charter High School, etc.). The outreach efforts target middle- and high-school students and teachers, with emphases on ensuring the participation of underrepresented groups. The goal is to raise the long-term awareness of the scientific principles and practical applications of nanomanufacturing that have traditionally received little attention in the K-12 education.
