  • Singaporean students in British higher education: the statistics of success

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):155 - 160
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (432 KB)

    Increasing numbers of students from Singapore are choosing British Universities for their higher education. Most academics would describe these students as hard working, polite and having high expectations both of themselves and also of their teachers. The authors examine the performance of a group of well over 100 Singaporean students who have taken degrees in the Department of Electronic and Ele... View full abstract»

    Membership of an engineering institution is not as closely controlled in the USA as in the UK, so that membership is not considered a professional qualification. Engineering registration is the responsibility of an appointed board in each state. The requirements for registration include the equivalent of a university degree accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, a pr... View full abstract»

    From its beginnings in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, ionospheric physics evolved into a major branch of the wider discipline solar-terrestrial physics. This paper traces progress from the earliest days, through Appleton's era and the International Geophysical Year up to the present. Several lines of research are foreseen along which ionospheric physics will advance into the next ce... View full abstract»

  • The mercury-arc rectifier and supply to electric railways

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):183 - 192

    The introduction in the 1890s of the heavy-duty LVDC rapid-transit railway, drawing current from an AC power station, required some form of rectifier for converting the supply to DC in the conductor rail or contact wire. The development of the HVDC railway by 1915 likewise necessitated rectifiers. Though the principle of using the mercury arc to convert AC to DC was well understood by 1905, the fi...

    Computer vision is a unit of several degree courses. The authors believe that, regardless of the educational context, a common approach to computer vision teaching can be adopted by centring on real-world uses of the technology. Only through detailed consideration of the relationship between the world, the images it generates and the visual task to be performed can students learn the basic skill r... View full abstract»

    The finite-difference time-domain method gives accurate results for the calculation of electromagnetic wave propagation and hence can be used in a number of university final-year projects. The paper shows a novel application of the method in predicting electric fields from conductors on a PCB View full abstract»
