    A number of factors indicate that there is a need to change the character of engineering education in Britain. These factors range from student opinions of the courses and employers' dissatisfaction with graduates, to educational research into 'how students learn'. The Engineering Professors' Conference has considered how these deficiencies might be overcome and has produced a discussion document ... View full abstract»

    The author brings together a wide variety of potential components of a comprehensive scheme of continuous professional development (CPD) for engineers and technologists. He underlines the importance of good planning, efficiency and target setting, and for this reason encourages credit rating of CPD activities. He outlines the history of the build-up of CPD from the professional engineer's point of... View full abstract»

    Medical science has made great strides in methods of treatment during this century. Physicians and surgeons rely heavily on a huge infrastructure of medical metrics to help in the diagnosis of disease and in the monitoring of their patient's progress. Early in 1992, five research teams presented papers describing methods of measuring various characteristics of people at a colloquium held at the In... View full abstract»

    The immunity of modern vehicles to external sources of radiofrequency interference is important because of the amount and criticality of the electronic systems within. Assuring this immunity traditionally requires a representative vehicle to be operated in a strong electromagnetic field in a screened room while any malfunctions are observed. The research work described in this paper has produced a... View full abstract»
