    The computer has come to be a vital tool in engineering analysis and design. With the introduction of moderately-priced graphics terminals it will be even more so in the future. The rapid graphic interaction between the engineer and the computer will become more and more important in computer-aided design. To provide a vehicle for introducing students to the power and utility of CAD in the automat... View full abstract»

    The information explosion which has resulted from recent advances in computer technology has produced an ever increasing need for the clear and concise presentation of vast quantities of data. A Three Dimensional Display System is described which satisfies this need without the requirement for expensive and highly sophisticated equipment. The display system, which employs a small general purpose d... View full abstract»

    The needs and objectives of a societal systems curriculum in engineering education is discussed. Basic concepts in technology assessment are explicated and the organization of an undergraduate course in technology assessment and social choice is portrayed. Desirable characteristics in the format of similar courses are described and recommendations are made for similar courses on the basis of exper... View full abstract»

    Attacks by segments of society upon technology indicate that engineers have not effectively communicated their contributions to human welfare. Lowered enrollments reflect drops in recruitment, at the very time that many more engineers are needed to solve the problems being publicly discussed. Environmental engineering, systems engineering, and long-range planning bring the engineer into new commun... View full abstract»

    Ideally, engineers and scientists should be taught to write and speak about their own specialties in terms that another professional will approve of and an educated layman can understand. Further, they should be taught to understand and to use argument and persuasion. Such skills cannot be effectively taught in the freshman year. Courses providing such training should be scheduled in the senior ye... View full abstract»

    Holography, or three-dimensional photography, has been predominantly restricted to the advanced scientific laboratory. Improvements in gas lasers, photographic film, and methods of demonstration have all combined to allow the art to be practiced in graduate, undergraduate, and high schools with pleasing results. This note will present many of the practical aspects needed to ensure quality hologram... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2673 KB)

    The equipment and software which permit a university group to perform computer hardware research is described. The objectives were to obtain a low-cost, minimally specialized hardware system coupled to computer-aided design techniques. Two measures demonstrated that these objectives were met: (1) students have been able to build reasonably large devices as part of their graduate research and, (2) ... View full abstract»
