  • Closing the Engineering Gap: One Approach

    Publication Year: 1963, Page(s):39 - 44
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1559 KB)

    In the national debate about the shortage of people trained to advanced levels in modern technology, have we not overlooked the engineer already in practice? If the knowledge and skill of selected, key, practicing engineers were updated and reoriented, these men could help greatly to close the gap. As the pace of scientific advance continues, the knowledge of engineers who have been out of school ... View full abstract»

  • Job Obsolescence: Challenge and Opportunity

    The rate of accumulation of knowledge, and the application of knowledge, now frequently depreciates the value of an education gained in one's first 20 or 25 years. Experience acquired in the interim may not be a satisfactory substitute for the new knowledge which has become current since one's formal education. The consequence is to place an even greater premium on recently educated (younger) empl... View full abstract»

  • Updating the Training of Research and Development Personnel

    Publication Year: 1963, Page(s):50 - 56
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1625 KB)

    Although there has been some leveling off in the expansion of established research organizations, normal business growth plus requirements by government-financed research and new businesses will keep the demand for manpower high. There is little likelihood that the output of scientists and engineers by universities will keep pace with the needs. Thus, increasing productivity by retraining research... View full abstract»

  • The Education and Professional Development of Engineering Faculties

    Publication Year: 1963, Page(s):57 - 60
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (886 KB)

    The goal of engineering education is to train students to enter the practice of engineering. To accomplish this, there must be a faculty which is itself well-educated and adept at the practice of engineering, as well as a sympathetic environment, adequately equipped with appropriate facilities. Today's rapid technological progress renders earlier developments obsolete. The engineer, therefore, mus... View full abstract»

  • Programmed Instruction the Engineering of Education

    Publication Year: 1963, Page(s):60 - 64
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1065 KB)

    Programmed instruction provides a unique opportunity to "engineer" engineering education. The preparation of programs involves the normal engineering processes of specification of end product, specification of materials used (student preparation), and experimental iteration of designs until a reasonable approximation to the optimum is achieved. Programmed instruction is based on theories of learni... View full abstract»

    The exploitable logistic patterns of synthesis and application derivable from a fully differentially paced teaching system should be recognized as one of the more highly significant contributions of the system worth identifying and developing. This paper sets forth views and procedures resulting from research into adaptive autoinstructional methodologies at New York Institute of Technology as they... View full abstract»

    Programmed Experimental Teaching Exercises have been developed as part of an attempt to create a complete laboratory program which will meet the needs of today's electrical engineering students. These exercises are used as part of the classroom presentation and allow the students, using laboratory procedures, to demonstrate for themselves basic phenomena being studied in the classroom. Each exerci... View full abstract»

    Programmed Experimental Teaching Exercises have been used for laboratory instrument familiarization and for demonstration of basic circuit phenomena in conjunction with a first course in circuit theory for electrical engineering students. The exercises were used as part of the normal classroom presentation and covered such subjects as signal waveforms, time constants, superposition, impedance, res... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1088 KB)

    Existing pressures resulting from the need for stronger university-industry cooperation have created, among other aspects, a concerted demand from industry for more offcampus participation by the universities. After reviewing briefly the major historical changes which have established the tradition and purposes of university patterns of education, this paper warns of the philosophic and altruistic...

    The graduate assistance program of The Magnavox Company is covered in detail. Curriculum and methods of financing are described, and the statistics to date are detailed. In addition, the cooperative activities between industries in the state of Indiana and Purdue University are reported with respect to the statewide graduate program for engineers in industry. The Magnavox program is possibly uniqu... View full abstract»

  • A Torque Transducer System for Observing, Recording, and Controlling

    Publication Year: 1963, Page(s):85 - 90
    Cited by:  Papers (6)

    This paper describes a torque transducer system which measures the force of reaction on the stationary member of a rotating machine delivering or receiving power. The transducer system is not interposed between the driver and the driven machine. It is used as a sub-base in setting up the machine whose torque is to be measured. The transducer has a torque rating but no speed rating. Its torque rati... View full abstract»

  • Evaluating the Superposition Integrals by Retaining the Singularity Functions in the Integrands

    Publication Year: 1963, Page(s):90 - 92
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (453 KB)

    This paper shows how the superposition integrals can be evaluated without recourse to changing the limits of integration, when the integrands are zero over a range, through the use of singularity functions. This method avoids the need for sketching the integrands and illustrates the concepts involved in the superposition integrals without restricting the range or duration of the functions involved...

    A device is described which samples the potentials of a 90-node resistance-grid analog computer and turns on lamps whenever it finds a potential higher than a set value. The resulting lamp pattern displays to watching students the approximate location of a given line of equal potential; a series of such lines can be successively illuminated by progressively increasing the voltage across the resist...

  • A Simplified Method for Obtaining Requirements of Wiener's Optimum System

    Publication Year: 1963, Page(s):97 - 98
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (282 KB)

    This paper presents a simplified method of deriving Wiener's optimum frequency-response system based on the meansquare-error. The initial step follows closely other authors but the final solution is obtained without resorting to cumbersome algebraic manipulation of "completing the square." Furthermore, the present approach is more rigorous and provides a solution representing a unique minimum for ... View full abstract»

    An electric public utility, facing a necessary change in organization structure and a continuing problem of managerial replacements, discovered a dearth of managers immediately capable of assuming larger responsibilities. A full-scale inventory of managerial resources was undertaken, and a four-pronged appraisal tool was used to produce composite individual appraisals. A comparison of appraisals w...

    This experiment uses a relatively simple physical phenomenon to produce shock waves of an ionized gas. If two wires carry currents in opposite directions, they repel one another, due to the mutually coupled magnetic field. In this experiment, the "two wires" consisted of a stream of ionized gas and a fixed conductor. The stream of ionized gas was produced in an evacuated tube by discharging a bank...
