    In the light of his experience of software development in industry and lecturing to students of software engineering, the author identifies seven shortcomings in new graduates which would be better remedied at university than by training in industry. His views are nominally aimed at software engineering education, but it is felt that they are appropriate to engineering curricula in general View full abstract»

    The paper considers the education and training of engineers, using data from Fourah Bay College, University of Sierra Leone. It discusses changes in preferences in terms of disciplines, i.e. electrical, mechanical and civil engineering as offered by the Faculty of Engineering, with respect to the number of students opting for these disciplines. The problems encountered in the process of restructur... View full abstract»

  • Space, time and electromagnetic fields

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):137 - 143

    Electromagnetic fields associate energy with the structure of space and time, so that space and time jointly are constituents of the physical effects. The algebra of differential forms is well-suited to the description of such fields and greatly clarifies the processes, whereas the more usual vector algebra can lead to confusion and contradictions. The use of differential forms also points the way... View full abstract»
