This paper discusses the development of laboratory facilities for use with an on going NSF-CRCD project that will establish a three-course concentration in particle technology at NJIT, offered across the engineering curriculum. The main objective of the NSF funded project is to address the urgent need for undergraduate and graduate education in this vital field. The experimental and simulation facility which is being developed will be used mainly for the third course, `Experiments and Simulations in Particle Technology' which is intended for upper-level undergraduates and first-year graduate students, but will also become an integral part of other curriculum activities. This paper describes the equipment and the experiments that are being developed for this purpose, and will also describe the faculty and student experiences with a trial course (Experiments in Particle Technology) that is offered during Fall 1996 semester by the first author.
