An innovative approach to combining research and curriculum development for the field of chemical engineering is described. This approach has the potential to define a new paradigm for instruction in rapidly-evolving fields such as molecular simulation, computational chemistry, biochemical engineering, and materials science. The immediate aim has been to initiate a World Wide Web (WWW)-based textbook on molecular simulation, and to introduce it into the graduate and undergraduate chemical engineering curricula at respective institutions. The development of the text is funded by a grant from the Combined Research and Curriculum Development program of the National Science Foundation.
