    Concern for effective teaching in engineering appeared almost simultaneously with the inception of engineering education in this country, some 135 years ago, as seen in statements made by the first head of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. To place in perspective current efforts toward the teaching and training of engineers and to stress the significance of such endeavors, aspects of the evolution... View full abstract»

    A one-semester integrated microelectronics projects laboratory for junior-level electrical engineering students is described, which serves to educate the student in the physics and technology of microelectronics. The first third of the course is devoted to prescribed introductory experiments. In the final two-thirds of the semester, the student pursues a project of his own design. The curriculum o...

    In the senior communication theory course at Purdue University, instructional material which was formerly handled in a lecture-type preparation session is now being presented individually to students by means of audio tape recordings. Features of the audio tutorial method of instruction are discussed, with emphasis on the advantages and flexibility the method affords in laboratory instruction. The... View full abstract»

    The increased use of linear integrated circuit amplifiers, which require feedback stabilization, has resulted in increased emphasis on teaching feedback techniques to undergraduates. This paper describes the method used at the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn to teach juniors how to analyze and design feedback circuits. We have found that these students can, after taking the course, analyze and d... View full abstract»

    A simple but effective method for extracting periodic signals from noise is discussed, and experimental results of its implementation are given. This method (integration or storage), while only one of many ways in which such signals may be recovered from noise, has the advantage that it is easy to explain and to mechanize and thus is particularly useful in undergraduate signal theory courses and l...

    Engineering education is based on a concept that is not consistent with reality. The emphasis on mathematics and the neglect of the practical creates the irrational situation described by Moore [1] inwhichanexpert onenergyconversion couldfreeze todeath in a lumberyard because he doesn't know how to light a fire. The paper uses a concept known to Aristotle to describe what we have been doing and to... View full abstract»

    The use of computer-aided analysis enhances classroom learning. A feedback amplifier problem has been structured to exhibit the fundamental differences between feedback amplifiers and their nonfeedback equivalents. Such classroom exercises enable students to bypass a multitude of arithmetic calculations and focus their attention on the basic underlying principles. View full abstract»

    Methods of statistical interference including estimation and modem filter theory are finding ever-increasing application in electrical engineering problems. Two problems which occur when methods of modem estimation theory are applied to a physical problem are the choice of prior statistics and the choice of a mathematical model for the system. This paper provides a fundamental and tutorial discuss... View full abstract»

    This paper compares two ways of solving Laplace's equation for reasonably intractable boundary conditions. It is pointed out that the exact method, using the Schwarz-Christoffel transformation, may not be the more suitable, either for teaching or for practical purposes. It is felt that the availability of digital computers encourages numerical methods, which are simpler to use and easier to unders... View full abstract»

  • On the Frequency Response of Sampled-Data Systems

    Earlier work on sampled-data theory has extended the powerful technique of frequency response analysis to discrete systems. It is shown in this paper that the development to date has been inadequate in explaining the behavior of sampled systems under sinusoidal excitation. For purely discrete systems, replacing s with jω in Laplace and Z forms is satisfactory. However, for discrete-continu... View full abstract»

    Some students have difficulty during initial discussions in understanding the differences between frequency shift keying and square-wave frequency modulation. This article describes a problem for student assignment which is designed to assist the student who lacks, to some degree, this understanding. The problem consists of a requirement for calculating the spectra for three different, but related... View full abstract»

    Plotting algebraic functions on a computer printer is useful for student and teacher alike. The three subroutines presented simplify the process; they perform functions similar to subroutines described earlier [1], but are only 5 percent as long. View full abstract»

    Publication Year: 1969, Page(s):136 - 137

    The author points out why row vectors should be used in matrix equations for cascade systems. The use of the popular column vectors for this purpose causes considerable trouble. With row vectors, the matrices and the black boxes of the diagram are in the same order naturally, while with column vectors they can only be brought into such order by artificial means, such as inverse transfer functions ...

    The "systems approach" is finding wide application in a large variety of situations. This paper discusses the essential property of this approach: that of seeking to optimize the overall system functions in accordance with specified objectives, and of achieving the best compatibility among its parts. Systems engineering constitutes one of the major components of the systems approach. An important ... View full abstract»
