In today's global competitive environment, the engineering technology curriculum must adopt and reflect the changing needs of industry. This can happen only if the faculty are aware of the current trends in industry and are actively involved with industry and research projects. ASEE/NASA Faculty Fellowship program offers opportunities for professional development for Engineering Technology faculty. A parametric study of water jet cutting (WJC) process was done under the ASEE / NASA faculty fellowship program at NASA Langley Research Center. This research experience has been used to enhance undergraduate curriculum in Mechanical Engineering Technology at Old Dominion University (ODU).
