    The Israeli engineering educational system, though essentially based on European and American traditions, is influenced by the country's geographical, ethnic, political, and economic conditions. Besides the well-established Technion, the newer Tel-Aviv University and Ben-Gurion University are also offering degree programs in electrical engineering. The article discusses both academic and non-acade... View full abstract»

    The evaluation of instructors by students through some sort of anonymous questionnaire is a procedure that has become established at many Universities. This produces numerical data that are used to classify the relative teaching effectiveness of instructors. Such instructor ratings have been collected over a four year period in the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of Waterloo, C... View full abstract»

    There has been growing interest in the interactions between law and technology as subject matter having potential utility for understanding modern society and for helping to resolve some of its difficulties. There has also been increasing interest in various "mastery" strategies as effective ways to organize and conduct courses. This paper describes a course in law and technology taught using sele...

    This paper reports on a pedagogic project on the use of the computer to aid in the teaching of communication engineering. The computer is integrated into the educational activities in several courses on different levels. The aim is to investigate the effect on the pedagogic process and to study how the computer could be most profitably used. An account is given of various computer activities with ...

    The increasing applications of minicomputers as components of engineering systems require the introduction of suitable courses into engineering curricula to allow students to incorporate computers in their designs in a knowledgeable manner. This paper describes a course which has been developed with this goal, and its developmental modifications which have occurred over the past several years. The... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1317 KB)

    Two main variables, student personality and environmental motivation, were measured and controlled for 43 second year engineering students, in a four week segment of an introductory course in Strength of Materials. The students were assigned to three classes to which three motivational modes were applied. Mental ability was randomized across the three classes. The personality variable was defined ...

    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1135 KB)

    A cooperative university-industry approach to satisfying continuing education needs for engineers is presented. The effort involves the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Maine at Orono, and Fairchild Semiconductor, South Portland, Maine. The program which results is a solution to a troublesome geographical problem since the industry is separated from the center of science and eng... View full abstract»

    A teaching method is presented which has been used successfully in both undergraduate and graduate courses. It is based on using printed class notes as programmed learning material. The material is used in class with the instructor taking the role of a teaching machine. Courses taught using the method are listed and further applications suggested. An example is presented from material developed fo... View full abstract»

  • Introducing Nonlinear Problems to Undergraduate Engineering Students

    Publication Year: 1975, Page(s):159 - 161

    It is argued that preparing engineers for the challenging problems of present-day industry should involve the extension of homework problems to include realistic complications of nonlinearity and extensive use of the available computing facilities. This point of view has been illustrated through a simple Faraday's law problem of an electromechanical system that exhibits nonlinear effects if the re... View full abstract»

    A way to encourage a student to examine critically what he is reading is to give him a system analysis which contains some fault which leads to a false conclusion. The fault should be rather subtle and can be either a logical error or a bad assumption. Three examples are presented: (1) The magnetic rectifier, a coil which produces a dc component in the current when an ac voltage is applied. (2) Th... View full abstract»

    New measurement and evaluation methods for an instructional program are introduced. The traditional program evaluation has been based on student performance for frame responses and scores of pre-and post-tests. In this short note, the concept of "Response Time" which was introduced by F. Hermanson-Snickars et al., is presented in order to better evaluate the program [1]. Response time is that time...

    The subject of physiological modeling has been introduced in two conventional electrical engineering courses. Models of the respiratory process, waste generation, oxygen exchange, enzyme kinetics, and blood flow have been introduced. Although most engineering students have little background in physiology, it has been possible to introduce models that can be useful in the design of medical devices ... View full abstract»
