    Engineering education is presented with a unique opportunity for improvement due to the interruption caused by the war. This improvement can only be obtained by a clear determination of the fundamental goals of engineering education and the application to its curricula of the engineering design processes it claims to teach. A distinction should be drawn between the problems of Science, which are t... View full abstract»

    Significant changes in graduate engineering education have occurred during the past decade to warrant a critical update. The composition of the graduate student body has raised much concern. Doctoral level manpower to meet national requirements has declined drastically. The self-assessment of graduate programs is beginning to emerge to improve quality and content. The spectrum of continuing educat... View full abstract»

    A two-part microcomputer system laboratory course at the Technical University of Munich is presented. The course introduces the students into organization and programming of two basically different microcomputer systems which are based on a microprocessor with fixed instruction set (Intel 8080) and on a fast user-microprogrammable bit-slice microprocessor (Am 2900). Both systems are used in real-t... View full abstract»

    A low cost microcomputer control facility for the teaching of computer control theory to final year undergraduates is described. The teaching objectives are the need to offer direct "hands-on" experience of operating an on-line digital computer control system and the provision of a versatile method of studying the efficacy of a range of different computer control algorithms, thus allowing theoreti...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2661 KB)

    A simple laboratory demonstration of the phase-lock loop theory is described. The presentation uses an integrated circuit PLL, along with standard test equipment to demonstrate behavior for steady-state and dynamic conditions. Quasi-linear and nonlinear loop behavior are easily illustrated. View full abstract»

    It is shown that Cahn's representation for bandlimited periodic signals in terms of their sampled values can be derived simply by using the discrete Fourier transform (DFT). Parseval's theorem for the DFT allows the average power of such a signal to be expressed directly in terms of signal samples without harmonic analysis. View full abstract»

  • A Laboratory Experiment to Demonstrate the Transmission, Reflection, and Cutoff Frequency Characteristics of a Parallel Plate Waveguide

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):207 - 209
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1302 KB)

    A Junior and Senior level laboratory experiment in microwaves, demonstrating the propagation properties of a parallel plate waveguide, is presented. Transmission and reflection characteristics of the waveguide are studied near the cutoff frequency of the waveguide. The experiment is simple, inexpensive, and easily understood by inex-perienced students. View full abstract»

    Technical communications skills can be successfully taught to students in engineering courses without the expenditure of large amounts of class time if realistic design projects and reports are required of them. These design projects stimulate the acquisition of problem-solving skills by students. The use of handouts providing models of sample technical reports gives students reinforcement for the...

    All engineers are asked to work within an interdisciplinary group some time during their career. This group may be a project team, a committee, or a department. In order to better prepare an engineer for such an experience, a description of what to expect from an interdisciplinary study of a system is presented. The seven phases to be encountered by a group member are discussed. View full abstract»

    A one-year semiconductor technology course for undergraduate senior electrical engineering students is described. The course consists of one semester of lecture followed by one semester of laboratory. The material covered in the lecture is demonstrated to the students by field trips to local industry and in their laboratory. Highly sophisticated technology such as ion-implantation is demonstrated ... View full abstract»

    Of concern are the detector voltage and current of an unbalanced impedance bridge for the general case when both the source and detector impedances are finite. A convenient expression for the exact Thevenin impedance seen by the detector is derived. Several examples are given to illustrate the observation that this Thevenin impedance is barely sensitive to the source impedance. Two approximate The... View full abstract»
