  • Electromagnetic compatibility in critical applications: how can it be managed and taught?

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):206 - 212
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (600 KB)

    At system level the possibilities for electromagnetic incompatibility are almost unlimited and computer-aided design tools able to provide exact solutions to EMC problems are not yet available. However, every stage is teachable, calculable (if only on a statistical basis) and manageable. These tasks are essential in the design of safety-critical systems. This article reviews some of the implicatio... View full abstract»

    The use of aims and objectives in the design of an engineering education are reviewed, together with the approaches to learning adopted by students. Characteristics of degree courses which inhibit students achieving these aims and objectives are described. The mismatch between the aims in teaching and the reality of what students learn is then addressed. A problem-based learning course is describe... View full abstract»

    Imaging of human body organs has progressed rapidly in the last twenty years. Recent advances have concentrated not just on imaging an organ but on demonstrating various aspects of its function, e.g. images showing active parts of the brain when the eye or ear receive stimuli. Eight functional imaging methods are reviewed here, some being extensions of well-established techniques, others relativel... View full abstract»

    Drexel University's College of Engineering has undertaken a pioneering project to enhance the educational experience of engineering students. A new curriculum has been designed for the first two years of the undergraduate engineering programme. This new approach aims to bring engineering education into the 21st century by using integrated syllabi, team teaching and inverted curriculum principles a... View full abstract»

    This paper considers the initiatives aimed at encouraging a better representation of women in undergraduate engineering courses. It concentrates on experience in Australia and makes comparisons with overseas activities. Problems and difficulties in achieving gender balance are discussed with the conclusion that there is still a long way to go View full abstract»

    Roget's name is associated with the famed Thesaurus. Much less recognised is Roget's professional career in medicine and the sciences, not least those relating to electric and magnetic phenomena. He was Secretary of the Royal Society for many years and his contemporaries included Michael Faraday and Charles Babbage, with whom his relations were not always amicable. This article highlights the `ele... View full abstract»
