with the mission of creating an engineering school for the 21st century. Over the last five years, the college has transformed from an idea to a functioning entity that admitted its first freshman class in fall 2002. This paper describes the broad outlines of the Olin curriculum with some emphasis on the electrical and computer engineering degree. The(More)
This paper demonstrates an all-silicon contactless testing approach using a modified microscope system and a novel silicon LED fabricated on the "device under test". This cost effective approach utilizes optical signals and avoids known problems associated with the large number of mechanical probes required for wafer testing of advanced silicon ICs. I.(More)
—The rapid improvement in performance and increased density of electronic devices in integrated circuits have provided a strong motivation for the development of contactless testing and diagnostic measurement methods. This paper first reviews existing contactless test methodologies and then compares these with an all-silicon contactless testing approach(More)
The importance of " design " in engineering education is well established and a cornerstone of most new engineering curricula as well as accreditation criteria. Electrical and computer engineering (ECE) programs view many elements of design in ways similar to other engineering disciplines. However, in some respects other disciplines within engineering, such(More)
