Taught a summer short course with Dr. Daniel J. Schneck for Engineers in the Life Science Industry who need some specific training in Biomedical Engineering. Title: Physiologic Systems for Engineers; Dates: August 19-24, 1984, August 21-26, 1983; and August 22-27, 1982
Teaching and Participation:
American Chemical Society short course on High Performance Polymeric Adhesives and Composites, Lecture on Adhesive Mechanics. September, 1992.
Presented the two lectures for Statics (2 hours each) for the nationally televised, interactive review course for EIT test (Engineers in Training). Organized and wrote a complete set of notes on Statics for this program, including example problems. The course was presented live and interactive twice. The video tapes from these original two sessions were edited and are now utilized to run the course every winter. The original notes from this class are still distributed as part of the course offering. Dr. Grant continues to receive questions by telephone from people who are taking the course as a continuing education effort
