    Technological assessment and then an educated forecast of what the future will bring have been used with various degrees of success for research planning by various agencies of the government and industry for a number of years. This paper presents the starting structure for an assessment of electrical engineering education. The structure in the form of a relevance tree is presented with major bran... View full abstract»

    The COSINE Committee was funded by the National Science Foundation to spearhead the introduction of computer engineering into the electrical engineering curriculum. This paper assesses the impact of the committee. During the early 1960's, electrical engineering departments in the United States lagged behind other engineering departments in the development of computer-oriented courses. The COSINE C...

  • Some Reflections on Education for Creativity in Engineering

    Publication Year: 1974, Page(s):189 - 192
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1214 KB)

    During the past two decades, the consistent trend in engineering education has been to cultivate an ever increasing degree of sophistication pertaining to research, mathematics, and engineering analysis at the expense of effort devoted to developing the student's skill and confidence in engineering synthesis and creative design. The time has now come to restore a more equitable balance between the... View full abstract»

    An exact asymptotic method is presented for performing gain calculations on feedback amplifiers. The method is algorithmic and utilizes only Ohm's law, voltage and current division and source conversion and does not require the breaking of the feedback loop. For impedance calculations Blackman's formula is used. A set of quick-reference tables is presented for the most common feedback amplifier co... View full abstract»

    There exists a need, in undergraduate microwave engineering courses, for a simple analysis program similar to ECAP, but which is applicable to distributed circuits. Such a program has been developed at the University of Maine, Orono to analyze a network of cascaded two-ports with the possibility of one feedback path. This configuration, while not the most general, will encompass nearly all network... View full abstract»

    New teaching techniques are available that have been observed to increase the effectiveness of instruction; CES practitioners should examine these techniques and use them where they are applicable. There are at least three instructional strategies that impart instruction without the continuous presence of the traditional lecture-type instructor, and hence these strategies should be considered as a...

  • Double Poles and the Mysterious "t" Factor

    Publication Year: 1974, Page(s): 205

    This paper presents a simple visual explanation of the mysterious "t" factor associated with a Laplace transform having repeated poles. This iconic explication provides insight into why it is practically impossible to tell from observation of the impulse-response waveform whether two poles of a system function are, in fact, exactly coincident or merely neighbors.
