    To have the cake, or eat it? (continued) Most U.S. engineering colleges were founded in the 40 years following the passage of the Morrill Land-Grant Act in 1862. In the same general period, the world witnessed a phenomenal conjunction of inventions — the internal combustion engine, the vulcanization of rubber, the pneumatic tire, the automobile, the steam turbine, the use of steel in construction,...

    One hears much today about the need for the engineer to continue to learn, to move as the field moves, to enter new fields as challenges arise. Electrical engineering, in its recent progress from dc and ac circuits through the vacuum tube and the waveguide and into the complexities of solid-state devices, well demonstrates the necessity for perpetual learning.

    The theory of matrices is playing a role of rapidly increasing importance in the formulation and solution of problems, not only in mathematics and engineering, but in the biological and social sciences as well. Before the advent of the computer, a mathematician could talk glibly about the existence and uniqueness of a solution of a system of ten linear equations in ten unknowns. Few had ever tried...

    On January 26 Echo II joined its sister satellites in their race around the earth to pick up messages from various spots and relay them to others. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration successfully launched the largest communications satellite in action at the time of writing, sending aloft a balloon-like structure with a diameter of 135 feet, and standing 13 stories high. Its developm... View full abstract»
