    Traditional modes of communications are inadequate for distance learning in the information age. With advances in computer technology, the Internet offers great opportunities for educational exchange of ideas across vast distances. This paper proposes an end-to-end solution for streaming 'live' and recorded multimedia lectures over the Internet. The technical issues involved are first discussed an... View full abstract»

    This paper presents the development of a computer-controlled piezo manipulation system for biomedical applications such as intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). The hardware set-up and control strategies are described in detail to illustrate the advantages of this approach compared to manually based injection methods. When used for ICSI an improved success rate in terms of oocyte survival and ... View full abstract»

    The UK Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education is introducing a new procedure, the Academic Review for assessing the quality of education provision. This paper discusses the similarities and differences between; the Academic Review (introduced in Scotland in October 2000) and the Subject Review system that has run in England and Northern Ireland since September 1995. It identifies issues tha... View full abstract»

  • Metres to nanometres: measurements in clean and dirty environments

    Publication Year: 2001, Page(s):225 - 236

    Dimensional and materials analytical measurement techniques can now be used to measure parameters down to the subnanometre level. These techniques are now being used in the real manufacturing world for the production of very large components, e.g. aircraft frames, even though the measurements may be carried out under variable conditions (e.g. changes in temperature and pressure). The combination o... View full abstract»

  • Early 20th Century advice to young American engineers

    Publication Year: 2001, Page(s):241 - 248
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1088 KB)

    Extracts from addresses made by distinguished American engineering educationalists early in the last century reveal a concern to pay attention to nontechnical matters, such as command of the English language, familiarity with the arts, business skills and personal qualities. The author believes young student engineers of today could benefit from an earnest study of their advice View full abstract»

  • An overview of the powder processing of soft magnetic composites

    Publication Year: 2001, Page(s):237 - 240

    The technique of powder metallurgy is becoming increasingly common in the electrical manufacturing industry. It not only eliminates a number of steps in the manufacturing process, but uses less energy and gives near-net shape results which require few, or no finishing steps. The process is suitable for soft magnetic composites, and appropriate heat treatments can further tailor properties to a spe... View full abstract»
