Greg Childers and the physics department will begin an outreach program this coming summer with UEE and ECS-CEE to cohost some 20 faculty from Duy Tan University in Da Nang, Vietnam.

The program will begin here at home with a week of intensive overview of our introductory physics sequence for engineers. The visiting faculty will also participate in parallel workshops organized by faculty in civil engineering and geared towards the civil-engineering curriculum.

The program is being coordinated by Debra Day and Carol Creighton from UEE.

The program is scheduled to continue each summer for the next four years and will include travel by Greg and colleagues to Duy Tan each fall and spring for follow-up observation and collaboration.
