    Since 1945 the development of Continuing Education has been rapid in France. In July of 1971, a law was passed which set up France's unique Continuing Education system that is in operation today. It is an interesting arrangement, financed by both the State and the businesses. The emphasis of this article is on the role that businesses play in support of this system. View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1538 KB)

    A set of ten senior-level experiments in optical information processing is described. The experiments are designed to introduce undergraduate students to this rapidly developing field and are suitable for either project-type or conventional laboratories, or for classroom demonstrations.

    Following Benjamin Franklin's announcement of the lightning rod in 1752, a protection system was devised for ships of the Royal Navy which used a chain conductor draped into the sea from the top of the mast. This system had only limited success since the chain, raised when lightning was expected, often was not installed when lightning struck; interfered with seamen manning the rigging; and was not...

    Moment methods have recently emerged as one of the most important tools for the solution of electromagnetic fields problems. This approach is conceptually simple and easily usable by the practicing engineer. However, the formal presentation of moment method is founded in the theory of linear vector spaces which makes it beyond the scope of most undergraduate electrical engineering curricula This p...

  • Invariants in the Teaching of Electrical Science

    Publication Year: 1978, Page(s):22 - 25

    Emphasis is placed on the fact that, in spite of changes in technology which render previous techniques obsolete, it is possible to identify certain principles (pedagogical invariants) which are bound to remain valid in the eyes of the scientist and useful to the engineer. In terms of the central role of electrical communications in the development of electrical science, two case items are cited: ... View full abstract»

    An experimental TV-lecturing system by which a lecture can be televised to remote locations and its laboratory test results are discussed. The concurrent transmission and simultaneous display of still and motion pictures were highly evaluated, with respect to the provision of a live classroom situation. View full abstract»

  • Educational Objectives for Science, Technology, Society, and Values Programs

    Because science, technology, society, and values courses and programs are interdisciplinary, directly address social change, and must be future oriented, new guidelines for defming educational objectives must be developed. Five categories of specific objectives that can help a teacher design a unique course or groups of courses are: 1) educational objectives concerned with cultural attitudes towar...

  • The Haynes-Shockley Experiment with Silicon Planar Structures

    Publication Year: 1978, Page(s):31 - 35
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1675 KB)

    A Haynes-Shockley experiment is described which is performed on silicon planar structures instead of on the usual germanium filaments. The drift field is realized by planar ohmic contacts, which are properly positioned to ensure a homogeneous field in the measuring area. The structures have been thoroughly tested, and the measurements yield the expected minority carrier drift mobility and lifetime... View full abstract»
