    The challenge posed by the need for change in engineering education, in a changing technical world, is being answered by the largest of our engineering fields with programs which reflect a unanimity of purpose rarely encountered in educational circles and realistic appreciation of the factors bearing on this need. A number of underlying factors have enabled electrical engineering to choose a direc... View full abstract»

    The rapid growth of computer sciences is presenting electrical engineering with a serious problem. Should electrical engineering departments adapt their curricula to meet the special needs of computer engineers and scientists or should they leave the field to computer science departments? An argument is made in favor of establishing special programs in computer sciences within electrical engineeri... View full abstract»

    Out of the needs of man brought about by automation, the population explosion, the expansion of human expectations, continued peace in the world, and scientific discovery are derived the influences on engineering practice and electrical engineering education for the next decade. Scientific discovery and the provision of quantitative models for environmental systems will have a profound effect on t... View full abstract»

    The development of a procedure for constructively reviewing sound-motion pictures for supplementing engineering instruction is described, and the reviews of sixty-five different instructional films are summarized. The films were reviewed during 1961 to 1963 at the University of Illinois at Urbana, for the purpose of determining their technical correctness, quality, and instructional value. View full abstract»

  • Demonstration of Magnetic Flux Constraints and a Lumped Parameter Alfvén Wave

    Publication Year: 1965, Page(s):41 - 47

    A series of experiments is described which demonstrates the dynamical properties of electromechanical systems constrained to constant flux. The frozen field and diamagnetic behavior of a single coil are first demonstrated. Then, four deformable coils are connected together to make a lumped parameter Alfven wave. This model clarifies the basic electromechanical nature of these waves. The constant f... View full abstract»

  • Design for a General-Purpose, Time-Locked, Group Teaching Machine

    Publication Year: 1965, Page(s):48 - 50
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (598 KB)

    A new approach to the design of group teaching machines of the branching type is presented. The approach may be described as follows: A lecture is divided into several topics, each of which ends with a quiz. Through reviews which always end with a quiz, it is insured that a student has understood the current topic before he proceeds to the next one. When a simple restriction on review durations is...

  • Quantum Theory in the Electrical Engineering Curriculum

    Publication Year: 1965, Page(s):50 - 56

    An approach to quantum theory tailored for those students whose backgrounds include relative strength in classical electromagnetic field theory but less in classical mechanics is described. Rather than building quantum theory by following the historical steps, as is often done, the technique is to approach the subject directly from a background knowledge of electromagnetic field theory. The approa... View full abstract»

    Experimentation and observation, mathematical correlation of observable data, engineering design, and physical theory, are today interwoven in many ways in modern engineering education. Particularly, modern engineering curriculum encourages a thorough investiagation into the fundamentals of physical theory. For a successful inquiry into the intricacies of classical and modem physical theory, the e... View full abstract»

  • Conducting Spheres in Electrostatic Fields

    Publication Year: 1965, Page(s):60 - 61
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (248 KB)

    The problem of finding the resulting electrostatic potential outside a conducting sphere when the sphere is introduced into a known field is usually attacked by placing suitable image charges and dipoles at specially chosen points within the sphere. Thus, for example, to determine the field due to a point charge e outside an earthed conducting sphere, the standard procedure is to place a point cha... View full abstract»

  • Transfer Function Synthesis in the Time Domain an Extension of Levy's Method

    This paper attempts to extend Levy's method of the time domain. If the impulse response of a system is given and its transfer function is desired, we use gate functions to convert the transient response and then apply Levy's technique. The high accuracy of the results of the new approach is demonstrated by two examples. A detailed digital computer flow graph is appended. View full abstract»

    A competitive project in preparing an engineering technical proposal will provide a challenge to students to strengthen their grasp of basic principles and to increase the depth and particularity of application. The proposal project enlists student enthusiasm and provides practical professional experience in conceiving, detailing, publishing, and defending an engineering scheme for a novel equipme...

    The 1963 to 1964 layoffs by defense companies affected 30 000 engineers and scientists. A study conducted in the San Francisco Bay Area shows that laid off engineers had not kept in touch with educational institutions; they were willing to move to a different geographical location; and even willing to be retrained " in anything" that could find them a job. Furthermore, these engineers had applied ... View full abstract»
