    The paradox of engineering education is that it must prepare the student to undertake work in areas unknown at the time he is attending college. An attempt is made to formulate criteria for establishing engineering curricula which will meet this apparently self-contradictory requirement. Rather than basing education on apparatus and techniques possessing high rates of obsolescence, it is suggested... View full abstract»

  • Training System Design Engineers

    Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):150 - 152

    System design engineers are in short supply and difficult to train. On-the-job training is the principal method used today, and the universities that seek to train system engineers make use of cooperative arrangements with industry to provide such experience. This paper suggests that training emphasis incorrectly has been placed on skills that are useful in system design work, rather than on the d... View full abstract»

  • Engineering Staff Utilization

    The staff members of an engineering school, perhaps more than those in any other group, are subject to continually changing technical responsibilities. The rate of change in the decades preceding 1950 was relatively slow, and new material was easily assimilated by competent individuals. In recent years, the increasing flow of new knowledge has presented a situation in which the effective instructo... View full abstract»

  • The Use of an Automatic Computer System in Teachin

    PLATO II is an automatic teaching device designed to teach a number of students concurrently, but independently, by means of a single, central, high-speed computer. Only two student sites have been constructed thus far, but, in principal, the number of students that can be taught by PLATO II is limited only by the capacity and speed of the central computer. The power of such a computer-based teach... View full abstract»

  • Modern Objectives and Methods for Laboratory Instruction

    In considering the role of the undergraduate laboratory in an engineering curriculum, it is important that the objectives of the laboratory program be well understood and clearly set forth. It is proposed that the objectives of a modern laboratory program should be: 1) to supplement and strengthen the teaching of subject matter by laboratory methods and 2) to teach the theory and practice of exper...

  • Magnetics in the Modern Curriculum

    Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):172 - 175
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (992 KB)

    Today's electrical engineering curriculum has not in general kept pace with the increasing use of magnetic devices to solve engineering problems. Increasing emphasis on the analysis of problems peculiar to magnetic engineering serves to better prepare the student to find solutions in magnetics to his engineering problems. Such emphasis also broadens the student's analytical background through the ... View full abstract»

  • Operational Calculus without Transforms

    Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):175 - 180
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1109 KB)

    An operational calculus is outlined that enables the determination of the response of any lumped circuit to a general waveform. It is based on elementary notions of operator algebra (sum, product, and inversion of operators) and is rigorously deducible. All processes are carried out in the time domain, no transform or complex-variable theory being needed. The operators turn out to correspond to su... View full abstract»

  • A Geometrical and Highly Generalized Interpretation of Two-Element-Kinl One-Port Driving Functions

    This paper presents in terms of a three-dimensional surface a technique for a visual as well as mathematical treatment of broad generality of the RL, RC and LC one-ports. An examination of the partial fraction terms of all the two-element series and parallel components which make up the canonic one-ports indicates that seven different types of terms are all that occur. The real and imaginary parts... View full abstract»

  • A Simple Treatment of the Superregenerative Oscillator Used to Detect Conductance Changes

    Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):184 - 186

    This article presents a treatment of the problem of the superregenerative oscillator used to detect changes in the equivalent conductance of the coil of its resonant circuit. It is shown that if the conductance changes occur at a rate much less than the quenching frequency of the oscillator, and a rectangular quench waveform is employed, it is possible to obtain an expression relating the factors ...

  • Digital Computer Calculation of the Operation of Nonlinear Devices with Energy Storage Elements

    Publication Year: 1962, Page(s):187 - 192
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (997 KB)

    This paper presents results on digital computer calculation of the operation of some tube and transistor circuits which combine nonlinear operation with energy storage elements. The Class C amplifier, the frequency multiplier and the blocking oscillator are all circuits of this type. This approach allows many of the conventional restrictions on analysis procedures to be removed. For instance, in t... View full abstract»
