    Problem-based learning (PBL) is a motivating, problem-centered teaching method. The methodology and its application to education in elementary circuit analysis is discussed in detail. Because of administrative constraints, the implemented course does not strictly adhere to the PBL methodology in the sense that the course curriculum is strictly defined. Also, the PBL students take the same exam as ... View full abstract»

    There is a growing need for engineers in the burgeoning fields of bioinformatics and proteomics. The high-throughput nature of both of these related fields has made traditional biological methods, which tend to focus on one or two molecules at a time, obsolete. The consequent deluge of experiment-based information has made engineering and problem-solving skills essential to attack the resulting co... View full abstract»

    In most cases, the cost of a control system increases based on its complexity. Proportional (P) controller is the simplest and most intuitive structure for the implementation of linear control systems. The difficulty to find the stability range of feedback systems with P controllers, using the Routh-Hurwitz criterion, increases with the order of the plant. For high order plants, the stability rang... View full abstract»
