    This paper focuses on continuing engineering education (CEE) as distinguished from degree-oriented education and retraining. In its complementary role to work assignments, supervision and coaching, and career planning, CEE is a means for helping individuals develop themselves in order to accelerate the process of "joining up," perform more effectively on current jobs, prepare for new jobs, gain gr...

    This paper points out a need for better education in applied magnetics in order to serve a broad spectrum of electrical engineering interests. Described here is a proposed partial solution to this need, an undergraduate course that demonstrates the wide applicability of a few fundamental principles. Two introductory concepts of the course are the characterization of a magnetic device in units of v... View full abstract»

    The use of FINEL, a finite element program for electrostatic potential problems, in an electrical and computer engineering undergraduate course in field analysis at Carnegie-Mellon University is described. Motivation for this coverage derives from the widespread introduction and rapid growth of the method in the context of practical applications. FINEL is accompanied by PLOTR, a program for drawin...

    Attracting high quality students to study microwave engineering has been difficult in recent years because the glamour fields of computer engineering and computer science have attracted many students away from the more traditional disciplines of electrical engineering. At the same time, the need for microwave engineers in both the commuications and aerospace industries has increased as the role of... View full abstract»

    An interactive distortionless transmission line simulator, capable of providing dynamic oscilloscope displays of voltage and current waveforms along the line, has been implemented on an Intel 8086 based single-board microcomputer. The simulator helps the student grasp the fundamentals of transmission line behavior through the observation of transient and steady-state wave phenomena under various c... View full abstract»

    In schools and colleges for the blind, Braille is the popular medium of accessing textual educational information. However, in situations when the text does not contain diagrams, graphs, or maps, converting the text to speech would increase the reading speed of the blind student considerably. In this paper, the techniques used in designing and evaluating the performance of a microcomputer-based sy... View full abstract»

    An introduction to a new computer-aided-design (CAD) package (PACMO), particularly useful for graduate courses in microwave devices, is presented. It contains subroutines for the design and analysis of ten microwave devices. The subroutines were developed to give rapid and practical help in obtaining design parameters based on the performance of the devices to be constructed. Although they are bas... View full abstract»

    In a freshman electrical engineering course an experiment was performed to evaluate the use of time-compressed videotaped lectures. The class of 192 students was randomly divided into three equal groups, with one group receiving live lectures, the second group videotaped lectures, and the third group 30 percent time-compressed videotaped lectures. The classes were tested during the experimental pe... View full abstract»

    The concept of top-down design of programs is directly transferable to digital system design. This approach is not only useful in practical design, it is an excellent vehicle to use in teaching digital design classes. Top-down design of digital systems is considered here along with an example of this method. View full abstract»
