    Managing any kind of substantial technical program is a complex and difficult job with many facets and a seemingly infinite number of possible misfortunes that can and frequently do, occur. This paper is, in no way, meant to cover the subject of engineering and program management but rather relates some instructive stories about three great managers and discusses a few areas that I believe are important View full abstract»

    Selected micro- and nano-systems developed recently at the Physical Electronics Laboratory of ETH Zurich are reviewed: (i) a fluxgate microsystem for detection of the Earth's magnetic field; (ii) a capacitive chemical sensor microsystem for detection of volatile organic compounds in air; and (iii) a parallel scanning AFM chip. The micro- and nano-systems combine sensor structures and readout circuitry on a single chip and are fabricated using industrial CMOS technology in combination with post-processing micromachining and film deposition View full abstract»

    My message is my title: Because the Human Brain Does Not Change, Technology Must. That is, technology must change, must improve, to accommodate billions more people and to lift the standard of living. Engineers, receiving feedback from the market and regulated wisely in the public interest, do much of the improving. Thus, the chance for improving Earth's environment hinges on engineers, and therefore their social context and technical vision. First, I will explain what I mean by the unchanging human brain. Then I will exemplify technical change in energy and agriculture in the cardinal directions it must go View full abstract»

  • The (r)evolution and stagnation of higher education in EE ever the past decades

    The current university education of electrical and electronics engineers has evolved from the well-established system of the 1950's to a wishy-washy mixture operating with lots of ill-motivated or less-qualified students, a process mostly accelerated by the growth in the telecommunications industry. External projects take staff time and the curriculum continues to threaten youngsters with de-focused mathematics. The computer age has reduced the interest in experimental research, and the continuation of science in the systems level may be in danger View full abstract»
