Annual Report of the Delegacy lvii the Institution of Civil Engineers on Model testing of embankments He also lectured on plane-strain testing equipment at the University of Cambridge Increasing attention is being given in the Department to management in civil engineering and with this in mind Dr Dixon spent the whole of the session working at the London School of Business Studies following the Sloane Programme DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRONIC AND ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING This has proved to be year of further development and transformation for the Department The first Sc Engineering degree course under the new course units system was completed and the process of providing an increasingly broad range of options continued especially for the third year curriculum The Department's commitment to full partici- pation in the current developments in computer engineering and applications was underlined by the purchase of Data General NOVA mini-computer This machine has already begun to play significant part in the undergraduate course since it offers the students computing experience essentially complementary to that obtained through the use of the large scale College and University computer systems It is hoped that the planned expansion of the computer activities will allow all students the opportunity to discover something of the excitement and the vast potential of this sector of electronics Dr Adby and Mr Hawken have undertaken the major task of setting up new course units in computer engineering During the session they were ably assisted in course planning and lecturing by Professor Douglas Lewin of Brunei University Dr David Turtle of the Electrical Research Association and Dr Richard Kingslake of the Computer Unit at King's College Research work in this area has begun with computer aided design studies of electrical network sensitivity and digital systems design and will extend to computer applications in educational technology in the near future Dr Deeley's research into industrial speed measurements has been broadened to include both non-magnetic and non-metallic moving media flow velocities feasibility study of the application of acoustic surface wave signal processing techniques to aperture correction problems in television has been conducted jointly by Dr Deeley and Professor Turner with support from
