Special Issue on:
Education in Electronics
Call for Papers
Guest Editor: Prof. Predrag Pejovic, University of Belgrade
From istorical point of view, electronics is relatively new and still rapidly growing and rapidly changing area. There is a need for electronics professionals, but they are required to constantly update and even upgrade their knowledge to remain competitive in the field. Having in mind current trends of making average career last longer, electronics majors pursuing their BS degrees at this moment are likely to retire in 50 years, or even later. There is a challenge to select a set of basic concepts that the students should master in order to be capable to update their skills to follow the job market requirements. On the other hand, there is a trade-off between the fundamental knowledge and the applied skills needed to get an “out of the box” engineer, that compete for limited time available to train students.
Addressing these issues is the topic of the special issue ”Education in Electronics”. New courses, new teaching approaches, review articles that cover educational systems or different approaches to teach specific topics are of interest. Also, papers describing new laboratory exercises are welcome. Focus of the issue is on engineering, and the methods and experiences in teaching engineering classes and related fields. Student assessment and statistical data are not a requirement.
