1 A revolution in schools The school we are in today will not be the school we are in tomorrow. This is especially apparent when the government's Extended Schools and Every Child Matters agendas for English schools are added to the mix, together with remodelling and the changes to the 14 – 19 phase.

Cycling Through Controversy. Debating Values and Viewpoints
Students practice taking different perspectives when debating environmental issues. Then they take these into account when proposing solutions.
Tribute Warsaw Uprising 1944
Video shows pictures of the war, the people, and the effects of the war. 63-day struggle to liberate World War II Warsaw from German occupation. Undertaken by the Armia Krajowa (Home Army), the Polish resistance group, at the time Allied troops were breaking through the Normandy defenses and the Red Army was standing at the line of the Vistula River.
Microwave and Wireless Technology Level M Part 1 : past exam questions
This resource (M565 Microwave and Wireless Technology Level M Part 1) contains past examination questions from the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering at the University of Portsmouth. The objectives of this unit are to provide opportunity for students to learn about microwave devices and associated theory and engage in design, build and testing of RF and microwave circuits such as voltage controlled oscillators, mixers, amplifiers, transmission line theory, filters, couplers and
Frontiers in Biomedical Engineering
The course covers basic concepts of biomedical engineering and their connection with the spectrum of human activity. It serves as an introduction to the fundamental science and engineering on which biomedical engineering is based. Case studies of drugs and medical products illustrate the product development-product testing cycle, patent protection, and FDA approval. It is designed for science and non-science majors.
Why is Nanotechnology Multidisciplinary? A perspective of one EE
The field of nano-science and nano-technology covers a broad area of expertise. Classical fields of Physics, Chemistry, Material Science, Electrical/Mechanical/Chemical Engineering all are involved in the "new" field f nano. Research and development in that area is by its very nature multi-disciplinary, since I bridge a large length scale from atoms to systems and timescales from femto seconds to eternity. This presentation will give a personal perspective of an electrical engineer in the area o
Formulas for functions of one variable
This is a chart of functions with one variable and the equations for their standard deviation. It is from the Engineering Statistics handbook whose goal is to help scientists and engineers incorporate statistical methods in their work as efficiently as possible. A link to tools and aids for using the handbook is provided.
This course is an introduction to the great buildings and engineering marvels of Rome and its empire, with an emphasis on urban planning and individual monuments and their decoration, including mural painting. While architectural developments in Rome, Pompeii, and Central Italy are highlighted, the course also provides a survey of sites and structures in what are now North Italy, Sicily, France, Spain, Germany, Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, and North Africa. The lectures are
Virtual Reality in the Design Studio: The Eindhoven Perspective
Since 1991 Virtual Reality has been used in student projects in the Building Information Technology group. It started as an experimental tool to assess the impact of VR technology in design, using the environment of the associated Calibre Institute. The technology was further developed in Calibre to become an important presentation tool for assessing design variants and final design solutions. However, it was only sporadically used in student projects. A major shift occurred in 1997 with a numbe
Generic Representations and the Generic Grid: Knowledge Interface, Organisation and Support of the (
Computer Aided Design requires the implementation of architectural issues in order to support the architectural design process. These issues consist of elements, knowledge structures, and design processes that are typical for architectural design. The paper introduces two concepts that aim to define and model some of such architectural issues: building types and design processes. The first concept, the Generic grid, will be shown to structure the description of designs, provide a form-based hier
All Caught Up
Commercial fishing nets often trap unprofitable animals in the process of catching their target species. In the following activity, students will experience the difficulty that fishermen experience while trying to isolate a target species when a variety of animals are found in the area of interest. The class will then discuss the large magnitude of this problem. Students will practice their data acquisition and analysis skills, through the collection of data and processing of this information to
2.875 Mechanical Assembly and Its Role in Product Development (MIT)
The course presents a systematic approach to design and assembly of mechanical assemblies, which should be of interest to engineering professionals, as well as post-baccalaureate students of mechanical, manufacturing and industrial engineering. It introduces mechanical and economic models of assemblies and assembly automation at two levels. "Assembly in the small" includes basic engineering models of part mating, and an explanation of the Remote Center Compliance. "Assembly in the large" takes a

Object Oriented Programming in C++
This course extends the student's basic procedural design and programming knowledge into the object oriented paradigm. The student will be expected to learn and apply the basic concepts of object oriented design and programming, i.e. abstraction, inheritance and polymorphism, in the context of the C++ language. Key software engineering principles such as decomposition and component re-use shall also be emphasised.
Fire safety risk assessment : sleeping accommodation
This guide, from the UK Department for Communities and Local Government Publications applies to England and Wales only. It provides "recommendations and guidance for use when assessing the adequacy of fire precautions in premises providing sleeping accommodation. Other fire risk assessment methods may be equally valid to comply with fire safety law. The guide also provides recommendations for the fire safety management of the premises." The full guide (May 2006) is 147 pages and is freely availa

Lecture 4: "The Greatest Mechanick of this Present Age": Dr Robert Hooke and the Origins of Engineer
Dr Allan Chapman on '"The Greatest Mechanick of this Present Age": Dr Robert Hooke and the Origins of Engineering Science in Oxford'. "When his Oxford friend, John Aubrey, described Hooke as the "Greatest Mechanick" of the Age, he acknowledged Hooke's genius as an Experimentalist. For Hooke the whole of nature was a great machine or engine in motion, the deepest truths of which could be uncovered by means of ingeniously-contrived instruments. For in the 1650s, Oxford's "Ingeniosi" of the future
The New York City Subway
This video shows how the subway system works how 3.6 million people use it daily. The video goes behind the scenes of the New York Subway and some of the problems and huge investment such a transportation is and how problems need to be solved.
