Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Despite what this oft-frivolous and arty website might suggest, I have been trained as an engineer and so a page dedicated to electrical and electronic engineering topics is probably obligatory.

General Engineering Resources

PSPICE for PCB design and simulation
PSPICE Circuit Simulation: Software and Documentation (Michigan Technological University)
The MathWorks: MATLAB
Control Tutorials: Control Tutorials for MATLAB (Uni of Michigan)
A Practical Introduction to MATLAB (Mark S. Gockenbach)
MIT's MATLAB Answers
Ansoft Maxwell 3D for electromagnetic field simulation
Wolfram Technology: Mathematica
The Integrator (powered by Mathematica on Wolfram's Site - this is quite good!)
MathSource (search engine for Mathematica resources)
MathSoft - makers of MathCAD

Telecommunications Resources

Having worked in the telecommunications and cable industry for a few years, I find these resources quite interesting and useful.
The ATM Forum (Asynchronous Transfer Mode)
A Brief Tutorial on ATM by Zehir Ibrahim
Yellowhead's ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) Tutorial
Communications Engineering and Design
BICSI Presentation Summaries: Characteristics of Co-axial Cables in HFC Systems
International Engineering Consortium (IEC)
IEC: Hybrid Fibre Coax (HFC) Telephony
Newbridge Networks (now Alcatel)

Professional Institutions

Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), USA

If you're an EE engineer, you have no excuse for not belonging to the IEEE. Their generic Spectrum magazine is excellent even for general light reading while their specialist publications are more geared towards the research engineer or scientist.


Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE), UK

This is useful primarily if you studied in the UK and practise engineering here. The monthly magazine sometimes needs some spicing up though.

Recommended Texts

For the EE student browsing this site, here are some texts I found most useful while at university. Most of these books should still be in publication or should at least be readily available from any decent engineering library.

Imperial College

My Alma Mater......

Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, University of London

M.Eng Project: Calculating the Scattering Matrices of Single Step Rectangular Waveguides and their Application in the Measurement of Dielectric Constants (1994, supervisor P Mason)
Do I remember anything about this now? No!

the path of least resistance
