    This paper discusses the feasibility of reducing the conventional undergraduate program in engineering from four years to three years by merely abolishing what is now the fourth or senior year. No change in the existing duration of the academic year is called for in this plan. Some radical though desirable changes in curriculum packaging are, however, implied. The plan is presented on its own meri... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a laboratory course in electric machines and power systems that is under development at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for senior electrical engineering students. The basic premise being followed is that students learn only by doing original work in which they are genuinely interested. Therefore, the assignments consist of original projects, selected by the individual studen... View full abstract»

    The state of physics, at the threshold of the modern era, in 1880, is briefly reviewed. The classical description of a physical event, as observed in Galilean frames, is outlined. The following experiments are discussed: aether drift (Michelson and Morley), propagation of radio waves (Hertz;Lodge), magnetic fields generated by motion of charge with respect to the aether (Roentgen; Trouton and Nobl...

    This paper describes the new electromechanics laboratory facilities at Stanford and the philosophy governing the teaching approach to the laboratory course. A typical experiment is described to illustrate how a relatively simple electromechanical device can be used to maximize student learning in the laboratory. View full abstract»

  • A Student's Scale Model Antenna Test Range

    Publication Year: 1963, Page(s):27 - 30

    Details of an X-band antenna test range built from readily available components are presented. The design is primarily for student use but may be used for antenna research as well. A feature of the design is the ease with which antennas of different impedances may be matched to a coaxial antenna feed and in turn to the waveguide source. The far field radiation pattern of the test antenna is record... View full abstract»

    90 years ago, in 1873, Maxwell (1831-1879) published his "Treatise On Electricity and Magnetism." The aim of this paper is to review the life and the scientific contributions of one of the first and the most ardent and loyal of his disciples, one of the most brilliant applied mathematicians and scientists of all time, the first modem electrical and electronics engineer, a self-taught man who, more...
