    The traditional engineering curriculum, based for the most part on classical science and nineteenth century mathematics, is inappropriate for educating engineers for the 21st century. Modern computer tools can be used both to shift the emphasis of the curriculum and to improve the quality of learning, but are rarely exploited to best effect. This paper reviews the potential of IT in engineering ed... View full abstract»

    Telesurgery requires a network with the following characteristics: reliability, acceptable end-to-end delay, the ability to transfer data from sources with widely different data rates, and low data error rates. A wide range of network options is currently available and even more will be available shortly. It is concluded that for telesurgery ISDN is the best option at present. In the near future, ...

    This article argues that the UK `Investor in People' programme has advantages for universities and other higher education institutions over other quality improvement schemes. It offers the opportunity to make total-quality-management (TQM) initiatives more meaningful within the current higher education context. Many total-quality-management programmes have not been that successful because they are... View full abstract»

    The seminal discoveries in electricity in the early years of the nineteenth century made possible electrical communication and electricity supply. They also laid the foundations for a series of discoveries towards the end of the century which were to have equally far reaching effects. One of these was the discovery of X-rays late in 1895. This paper examines the scientific background to that disco... View full abstract»
