Molecules Moving Through Monoliths: Is This Civil Engineering?

There are three equal and extremely important attributes of all engineering science concepts as presented in an ABET approved engineering curriculum. They are fundamental, immutable, and the essence of every engineering discipline. One such fundamental concept is molecular diffusion. Although traditionally a hallmark of chemical engineering education, historically, civil engineering education has presented diffusion concepts as a "just in time" tool to solve particular problems. However, a

It is anticipated that st tomorrow's employers will give junior engineers assignments that require an expanded experience and knowledge base of such concepts so that they will be able to immediately relate to and work effectively within interdisciplinary engineering and science teams.
