    In 1991 the Design Council published a report on 'Attaining competence in engineering design' which had been been prepared by a joint Working Party of the Design Council and The Engineering Council. The report gives general guidance on the interpretation of an Engineering Council policy document requirement for the mandatory inclusion of design studies in all accredited engineering degree courses....

    Since 1962, when the first enzyme electrode was reported, biosensors have been the focus of intensive research and have captured the interest and imagination of both the wider scientific and lay communities. They have a wide potential applicability encompassing both biomedical and industrial areas and offer a unique route to simplified, reagentless analysis. Financial savings in analysis are an im...

  • European collaboration and funding sources

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):21 - 29

    One route to improving industrial research and getting it funded (or part funded) by someone else is to collaborate across Europe. This approach opens up several funding possibilities but, as there is no such thing as a "free lunch", there are potential drawbacks and pitfalls to consider to maximise the benefits that can be gained. These aspects are explored and practical advice given about how to... View full abstract»

    Open examinations for undergraduates combine the advantages of coursework and conventional exams. An open exam is where students know the text of the questions in advance, in contrast with open book exams where the questions are kept secret but reference material is available. To its supporters the open exam is a sophisticated tool for first and second year courses which influences undergraduate b... View full abstract»

  • A green world-the role of the engineer

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):8 - 14
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (636 KB)

    In this article an attempt is made to broaden the environmental debate beyond the normal limits of energy and CFCs into wider engineering industry, and to quantify the role of the engineer in these issues. Problems associated with the energy industry, stratospheric ozone depletion, heavy metals, persistent organics and wastes are discussed in depth. From this discussion, further aspects of the eng...

  • Robert Alexander Watson-Watt, the father of radar

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):31 - 40

    The use of radar in World War II to track incoming enemy bombers was a vital factor in the successful defence of Great Britain against air attack both by day and by night. It also made a valuable contribution to our conduct of the war at sea and to our bomber offensive. We owe the fact that both ground and airborne radar were developed in an operationally effective form in time for use in World Wa... View full abstract»
