Impact of Academic Computing on Teaching Electrical Engineering at Clarkson University

IEEE Transactions on Education
The impact of academic computing on undergraduate electrical engineering courses at Clarkson University is described. The many changes made possible or made necessary by the ready availability of the computer are organized in two broad categories: changes to content and changes in presentation. Changes to content are appropriate since techniques that would require prohibitive effort if done by hand have now become manageable with the computer as a tool. Changes in presentation are also appropriate because computing power can be used to present material in ways that foster insight.
