    The application of communication devices based on technology to undergraduate engineering education is accelerating. A question may be raised to what extent such devices are being used and can be used in continuing engineering education. A federal interagency committee is looking at this question. Herein is a synopsis of data developed through the activity of the committee. This paper is a challen... View full abstract»

  • A tutorial communication system- blackboard-by-wire plus picturephone set

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):223 - 228
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2176 KB)

    The combination of blackboard-by-wire plus Picturephone is analyzed as a tutorial communication system to teach engineers at their job locations. This developing system, based on use of the common-carrier telephone system, has advantages over closedcircuit (talkback) television systems. The remote blackboard can be three panels for nearly "full-wall" presentation, and two-way video may be added fa... View full abstract»

  • A Low-Cost Spectrometer for Instructional Purposes

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):229 - 231
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1371 KB)

    The construction of a spectrometer designed for instructional purposes is described. The component parts cost approximately $20. The resolution is better than 0.01 micron in the neighborhood of 1 micron. The use of the spectrometer for student instruction in optical properties of semiconductors is described, and a typical experimental transmission spectrum obtained with the spectrometer on a silic...

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (804 KB)

    Enthusiastic motivation of college engineering freshmen and integration of freshmen into the engineering family are supplied by a new sequence of beginning engineering courses using elementary computer routines to illustrate otherwise abstract mathematical concepts. Methods employed in the sequence at the University of Nevada are described and examples of work accomplished by freshmen who have had... View full abstract»

  • A Simple Operator Approach for Analytic Solution of Linear Constant-Coefficient Difference Equations

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):234 - 239
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1120 KB)

    A simple extension of elementary linear differential equation theory is presented that includes linear constant-coefficient difference equations. The main body of the paper is written in a manner suitable for undergraduate classroom use by the advanced first year or regular second year engineering/science student. Four examples of the theory are presented from such diverse subjects as probability,... View full abstract»

  • Summary Report on the New York University Graduate Center at Bell Telephone Laboratories

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):239 - 243
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (921 KB)

    The New York University Graduate Center at Bell Telephone Laboratories, Inc., was in continuous operation for nine full years after its establishment in the spring of 1957. This report discusses the history preceding the creation of the Graduate Center, the nature of the program, the curriculum of studies, and the impact of the operation on the students, the faculty, and the two organizations.

    Fields within rectangular waveguides can be described completely without employing differential equations. Maxwell's equations are not used in this short development which, while presented at an elementary academic level, produces a high degree of visualization. View full abstract»

    Finding autocorrelation functions for stochastic processes can be a complex and frustrating problem for the student. In this short paper we present a systematic approach to this problem that should reduce, or at least compartmentalize, this complexity. View full abstract»

  • Straight-Line Approximations for Phase-Angle Plots

    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    There are several graphical means being used in the frequency domain to predict and adjust control system performance, two of which are the log-magnitude plot and the phase-angle plot. In teaching the former of these in undergraduate curricula, extensive use is made of straight-line approximations to the log magnitude, whereas no correspondingly simple approximation for phase angle has been made a...

  • A Theoretical Approach to the Autodyne

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):252 - 254

    While the autodyne has been widely utilized for many years as a "rotating amplifier," no simple analysis of the operation of this machine has appeared in the literature which is suitable for presentation at the undergraduate level. An analysis based on simple machine concepts is presented. View full abstract»

  • Platonic Body Resistance Networks

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):254 - 255

    There are surprisingly few graphs which are both regular (same degree of incidence at each node) and have regular duals. Because these graphs all can be arranged to appear as regular geometric solids, they are known, specifically, as Platonic bodies. While direct application of graph theoretical methods can be used to discover all the graphs, this paper shows how topological and electrical restric... View full abstract»

  • Dispersion Diagram of a Helical Antenna

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):255 - 256

    A majority of textbooks on antennas neglect to show the use of the dispersion diagram in explaining the properties of a helical antenna. This short paper shows that the region of operation of an axial-mode helical antenna can be easily located on the dispersion diagram. The close relationship between the dispersion diagram as evaluated by Klock and the theory of operation of the helical antenna gi... View full abstract»
