We've created a new EE Life blog, Academic Antics, to collect all the fantastic engineering pranks you pulled back in the days before life got real.
We had a lot of fun with Engineering Practical Jokes this year and now it's time to step into the Way Back Machine and send us your engineering pranks from college. We've created a new blog, Academic Antics, expressly for this purpose.
Did you prank the dorm bully or the self-centered jock? Did you woo a young lovely with your cleverness? Did you really assemble a Volkswagen in the dean's office and leave it running???
Let us know. Email us your Academic Antics and we'll post them. As with Practical Jokes, we'll gather them for a few months, put them to a vote and give away a prize or two.
I wonder just how clever today's fresh-outs or college students are compared with older generations...
Let us know!
The innovative application of a mix of simulation techniques has provided a team at IBM with a unique ability to view the connection between atomic bond type, drift and electrical conductivity in PCM devices. Results overturn some old ideas of band gap expansion.
Wide band gap semiconductor materials (diamond, silicon carbide, and gallium nitride) are well positioned to play important roles in the next and future generations of consumer and military/defense electronics capability.
