  • A "Case-Study" Approach to Electrical Energy Engineering

    Publication Year: 1972, Page(s):152 - 155
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (799 KB)

    A powerful method for learning basic engineering principles involves the study of a set of specially defined "cases." The method has attractive motivational aspects since it immediately involves the student in applications. This technique is well suited for energy ("power") engineering education; a list of suitable subjects is presented, and four of these are expanded as an example of a set of pro...

  • Statewide Development of Sophomore-Level Electrical Engineering Laboratories via Project Colorado CO-TIE

    Publication Year: 1972, Page(s):163 - 165
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1549 KB)

    Project Colorado CO-TIE was initiated in 1968 to help college students in their transfer from two-year pre-engineering programs to four-year degree-granting universities. The main feature of CO-TIE is that videotapes of key sophomorelevel courses (predominantly Network Analysis) are provided to the participating colleges. Experience with CO-TIE has shown that colleges, in general, are inadequately... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1140 KB)

    Two Master's level student projects are described stressing the on-line real time use of a minicomputer as an element of an overall system. Emphasis is placed on using the dedicated minicomputer as an integral part of the system being developed and as a systems tool rather than as a simulator. The specific aspects of the dedicated minicomputer which makes it well suited for engineering application... View full abstract»
