A technique has been utilized that decreases the diameter of the intestine by one-half and doubles the length. In this procedure, no adsorptive surface is sacrificed and no obstructing segments are interposed. Our experience demonstrates the feasibility of dividing the small bowel longitudinally and maintaining vascular integrity and peristaltic function.(More)
The most pressing and critical needs for engineering graduates in 2013 and beyond are to be natural innovators who are able to integrate their knowledge to solve complex engineering problems. This paper introduces an integrated platform for learningTM as a solution to meet these needs. The platform for learning provides an environment for innovation, while(More)
Outcomes based assessment has shown that introducing a platform for learningTM based on a robot referred to as TekBotsTM into the first two electrical and computer engineering (ECE) courses enhances students’ sense of community, innovation capabilities, and troubleshooting skills. At Oregon State University, Corvallis, ECE students enhance their fundamental(More)
ACKNOWLEDGMENT Many people have contributed to the development of this thesis over the last two years. First and foremost I would like to thank my advisors, Dr. Un-Ku Moon and Dr. Gábor Temes, for supporting this research and for providing an environment in which it has been possible to freely pursue independent avenues of thought. Their foresight,(More)

Computer engineering is predominately taught in a way that separates topics into seemingly unrelated islands ofinforormation, where each island is the class in which the topic is presented. When viewed across classes, the topics seem lo have little relution to each other. The way topics ure presented ignores the need for connection and for integration,(More)
approved: Gabor C. Temes The design of a 10-bit pipelined charge redistribution DAC employing MOSCAPs biased in their accumulation mode is presented in this thesis. A switched capacitor filter and output buffer have also been designed for the system. The effect of MOSCAP nonlinearity on the performance of the pipelined charge redistribution DAC has been(More)
