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
- 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
- ISE 789: Micro/Nano-scale Fabrication

- 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.
