    The present design of advanced engineering education does not meet the needs of the engineering manpower marketplace. Training in engineering practice needs to be reinforced. This is best accomplished by establishing professional schools of engineering, independent of conventional university graduate schools, and requiring at least two years of preengineering for admission. The first engineering d... View full abstract»

  • A Block Diagram Computer Language for Educational Animations

    Publication Year: 1976, Page(s):133 - 139

    Computer animation has great potential for the production of instructional aids. However, the sophistication of modern computer animation systems may be inappropriate in the educational environment, which has special requirements of low cost, simplicity and accessibility. A particular system which was designed to these requirements is described. A novel feature of the language is that it uses a bl... View full abstract»

    In September 1974, the Polytechnic Institute of New York (formerly the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn) offered undergraduate degree programs for the first time at its Long Island campus in Aerospace, Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering. This paper describes the Freshman General Engineering Lab, GE 103, the first in a sequence of new undergraduate engineering laboratories that has been... View full abstract»

  • Block Diagrams: A Tutorial Alternative to Dynamical Analogies

    Publication Year: 1976, Page(s):143 - 148
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1274 KB)

    Educational advantages and disadvantages of dynamical analogy and block-diagram models for interdisciplinary systems are discussed. If the system equations are known, a block-diagram is a useful tutorial alternative to the conventional dynamical analogy. It is easily drawn and yields a direct, graphical representation of the system equations with block elements that are not required to be physical... View full abstract»

  • Methods for Improving Design Procedures

    Most of the courses taken by engineering students deal with the analysis of given devices or systems rather than design. In fact, courses that teach design to a depth comparable to that of analysis are virtually unknown. As a consequence, students are not well prepared to function as designers when they begin their careers. They quickly gravitate to cut-and-try model building as a design procedure...

    A senior-graduate level course is described in which some of the material of traditional bioinstrumentation courses is presented in conjunction with laboratory applications of a minicomputer. During the course each student 1) learns aspects of the fundamental properties of bioelectrodes, transducers, and safe human biopotential measurement techniques, 2) uses a minicomputer as a laboratory instrum...

    This paper describes, in tutorial fashion, statistical procedures for educational experiments involving engineering laboratories. The sequence of the procedures is 1) formulation of the problem, 2) formulation of the hypotheses, 3) identification of the sample, 4) specification of the population, 5) construction of measuring items, 6) collecting data in cognitive and affective domains, 7) statisti...

  • Information Retrieval Techniques in the Engineering Curriculum

    Publication Year: 1976, Page(s):165 - 168

    The need for training engineers in the use of information resources and retrieval techniques, and the advantages to be gained from such a training, are stressed. The possibility of replacing the foreign language proficiency requirement by such a training in doctoral degree programs is examined. Some of the anticipated arguments against this training are answered. Possible course contents and some ... View full abstract»

  • On Understanding the Matched Filter in the Frequency Domain

    A matched filter is viewed as a cascade of a spectral-phase matched filter and a spectral-amplitude shading filter. The former provides the peak output in time, and the latter guarantees that that peak has maximum signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), or the latter may alternatively be chosen to provide better time resolution.
