    In an academic environment, the use of current technology is crucial to the effectiveness of the curriculum. In a laboratory course, this means that equipment, components, and experiments must be periodically updated to use new technology and facilities. The updating procedure requires careful planning in order to avoid potential problems. This paper outlines the steps required to introduce a new ... View full abstract»

    This paper contains a description of four experiments which demonstrate the fundamental principles of variable structure control (VSC). Any or all of these investigations can be readily repeated in a senior/graduate level controls laboratory course which utilizes analog computers and microprocessors. A brief review of the theory of VSC is also enclosed. View full abstract»

    The popularity, ease of availability, and emergence of personal computers as powerful computational tools prompts the development of teaching software suitable for these processors. This paper presents a finite element and a finite deference code for mapping the electrostatic potentials associated with any two-dimensional configuration. The codes were written in Basic with a graphics capability su... View full abstract»

    Microprocessor workstations, which include in-circuit emulators, now form the basis of the microprocessor interfacing course at the University of Kentucky. The availability of in-circuit emulators at a moderate cost allowed us to build six workstations to serve our senior and graduate students. Each workstation has a computer, an emulator, and a target system on which interface experiments can be ... View full abstract»

    Early analyses and anecdotal data support the efficacy of graduate engineering education delivered to off-campus students studying in moderately-sized groups with ``tutorial'' support. However, data now indicate that off-campus learners often study individually or in very small groups of three or fewer viewers. This trend will only develop further as increased uses of satellite technology affords ... View full abstract»

    A computer program, LIGNE, has been developed as a comprehensive teaching aid for the section on transmission line theory in an electromagnetics course. The program assists the student in the analysis of transmission lines, enabling him to quickly assess how the various line parameters and the terminal load effect the propagation characteristics. At the same time, it provides him, through graphic ... View full abstract»
