Dr. James Irvine
My specialism is communications, and almost all real world systems in this area make significant use of standards. Rather than attempting to give an overview of all relevant standards, which is simply impossible given the number which would need to be considered, I try to introduce students to how to use standards through project based learning.
About our Engineering Program at Strathclyde
Strathclyde University EEE Department teaches 4-year honors, 5-year integrated Masters programmes and 1-year specialist Masters programmes to some 600 students specialising in electronic engineering, or doing joint degrees with mechanical engineering and computer science. The motto of the institution is ‘A Place of Useful Learning’, and as well as teaching fundamentals, we place emphasis on practical applications and industry needs. Introducing students to standards forms a key role in this process.
