    Serious concern about the differences that exist between the performance of female and male students in mathematics, science, and by extension, information technology (IT), has led researchers to attempt to identify why female students have inferior performance. This paper first reviews the relevant literature in order to isolate the age group in which the difference is most prevalent, and then id... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a solution framework for the student project allocation (SPA) problem which is based on evolutionary algorithms (EAs), a biologically inspired stochastic, population-based search paradigm. Project-based assessment is a common component of engineering courses that are conducted in universities around the world. In their final year of study, a list of projects is made available b...

    This research compares the use of computer-assisted learning (CAL) with the traditional learning methods in the teaching of permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSMs). The present study was performed on an experimental group consisting of 16 students and a control group consisting of 15 students. In order to measure the students' success, a multiple-choice test of 23 items was used as the pretest... View full abstract»

    Training new electronics engineers presents several major challenges. This paper proposes a new approach for practical lessons in second-level analog electronics, where students get a closer view of real-world practices in electronic engineering. The authors describe and evaluate a more dynamic way of teaching practical lessons in analog electronics in the first year of an electronic engineering d... View full abstract»

    Most well-known instructional operating systems are complex, particularly if their companion software is taken into account. It takes considerable time and effort to craft these systems, and their complexity may introduce maintenance and evolution problems. In this paper, a courseware called Awk-Linux is proposed. Awk-Linux can be crafted relatively more easily and it does not depend on any hardwa... View full abstract»

    A constructivist simulation-based methodology for teaching mobile communication systems in the electrical engineering curriculum is reported. In this methodology, senior undergraduate students develop simulators under the guidance of an advisor, and the simulators are later used by other students to learn these particular technologies. Evaluations based on students' results and opinions demonstrat... View full abstract»

    Although teachers and authors of textbooks make extensive use of examples, little has been published on assessing and classifying pedagogic examples in engineering and science. This study reviews various characteristics of examples intended for a course on probability for electrical engineers. Twelve examples are constructed to illustrate some characteristics of the correlation coefficient. A surv... View full abstract»
