The following program is recommended as the first year of a five-year program leading to the Bachelor of Archi tecture degree. After successful completion of the courses listed, students are eligible to apply for admis sion to the school of architecture of their choice. It should be understood that stu- dents who complete this year of work will not automatically be assured of admis sion to the remaining four years of work in a school of architecture. Those who wish to apply to a school of architecture should see their advisors no later than Feb ruary 1 in order to have time to follow the proper proce dure to be considered for admission for the fall term of the following year. The recommended program for the first year follows.
An introduction to microcomputer architecture and the basic concepts used in the Personal Computer (PC). Key features of the PC are explored by writing programs in a high-level language (such as C) to access them. Assembly language programs are utilized to gain insight into machine level operations. Laboratory exercises support the lecture and are carried out in the context of currently available operating systems.

The firms of most respondents have adopted the Internet and are now using e-mails and the World-Wide Web on a daily basis. The remaining firms will inevitably adopt this new technology in the coming years if not months. Many firms even have a presence on the Web, and half of those which do not have a presence intend to do so in the near future. However, even though IT has been adopted by most firms surveyed because it provides quick and efficient means of exchanging information digitally, the majority of AEC professionals still exchange design information by means of paper drawings and specifications as they used to do prior to the advent of computers. It is a question of time before the various players get accustomed to this new mode of communication. The AEC industry was a little slower in adopting IT than other service industries that are more information intensive such as the communications industry and business services (Industry Canada, 1997), but this is understandable since the AEC industry tends to be risk avert and prefers to adopt a technology that has been proven. Technological improvement in this industry is usually driven by necessity rather than by the need to be at the cutting edge. Adopting a new technology always involves significant investments. The great majority of respondents reported that their companies have increased their investment in IT in the past two years and that they will increase them further in the next two years. Factors such as efficiency, demands and competition are all considered important motivators to make new investments in IT. The majority of the respondents consider that the main area for investment in the next two years will be computer-aided design by far followed by the Internet and accounts systems. The staff is in general very receptive and even actively involved in the introduction of new IT solutions.
Many engineering technologists assist engineers and scientists, especially in research and development. Others work in quality control—inspecting products and processes, conducting tests, or collecting data. In manufacturing, they may assist in product design, development, or production. Engineering technologists who work in research and development build or set up equipment, prepare and conduct experiments, collect data, calculate or record results, and help engineers or scientists in other ways, such as making prototype versions of newly designed equipment. They also assist in design work, often using computer-aided design (CAD) equipment. Most engineering technologists specialize in certain areas, learning skills and working in the same disciplines as engineers.
The B.S.B.M.E. degree program combines a strong set of mathematics, science, and biomedical engineering courses into a demanding and rewarding four-year degree program aimed at solving contemporary problems in the life and health sciences. Outstanding features include instructional objectives that integrate the study of the fundamental principles of life and health sciences with rigorous engineering disciplines through a core of interdisciplinary courses that include biomechanics, biomeasurements, biomaterials, computational biology, and biosignals and systems analysis, among others. Many of the courses involve laboratory and problem solving recitation sections that lead the student through a practical encounter with methods of engineering analysis aimed at understanding and solving problems related to human health care and delivery. The Senior Design Experience is a two-semester sequence where a team approach is used to solve problems originating from the laboratories of faculty across the Schools of Engineering, Science, Dentistry, and Medicine. This approach will develop strong team-working skills among the students and enhance their communication skills with professionals outside of their discipline.
Graduates should qualify for employment opportunities in electronics technology, computer service, computer networks, server maintenance, programming, and other areas requiring knowledge of electronic and computer systems. Graduates may also qualify for certification in electronics, computers, or networks.
To briefly recapitulate the analyses conducted throughout this self-assessment, we find the PDM program to be in quite good shape. Learning objectives have been clearly defined, and the courses that make up the study program seem well suited to fulfill these objectives. We have identified a weakness in lacking courses in electrical engineering and dynamics, but otherwise the courses cover the areas required well. There also a lack of integration horizontally across courses in the first two or three years.
The DHS network is comprised of nine communication hub sites. These sites are interconnected to form a statewide backbone network. The backbone is designed with multiple paths to increase service reliability and availability in the event of a failure. Primary transport technologies in use include frame relay (FR), Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM), T-1, T-3, OC3, and OC12. The major contracted carrier service providers at this time are AT&T and Verizon for the Garden State Network (GSN), the State’s network maintained by the Office of Information Technology.
Various approaches have been proposed to address erosion. "These approaches, which include tools, techniques and processes, are primarily classified into three generic categories that attempt to minimize, prevent and repair architecture erosion. Within these broad categories, each approach is further broken down reflecting the high-level strategies adopted to tackle erosion. These are: process-oriented architecture conformance, architecture evolution management, architecture design enforcement, architecture to implementation linkage, self-adaptation and architecture restoration techniques consisting of recovery, discovery and reconciliation."
Looking back over the years it seems to me that the ethos of architectural culture in Dublin has always been based on cultivating a particular type of sensitivity towards the nature of the environmental grain, irrespective of whether the subject in question is an urban grain or the grain of a particular landscape, or a mixture of both. It is just this tactile quality that makes the teaching of architecture at University College Dublin into a unique experience, one which is not available today elsewhere. Understated, modest, and non-spectacular and yet, at the same time, always pertinent, UCD has something to offer that the big global schools cannot match, namely, a commitment to the craft of architecture that is as critical as it is pragmatic.

Architects now have access to design tools that have supplanted early two-dimensional drawing programs with three-dimensional parametric design tools. Although Kalay (2009) points out that architects may replace the old tools with new ones and use them inappropriately, contemporary three-dimensional design tools can help architects to visualise the outcomes of their work. Thorpe and Kashuk (2009) made use of several advanced 3-D modelling and advanced parametric design tools such as Rhinoceros ® and Bentley Generative Components ® to design a beach house exhibited at Casas de Playas international urban exhibition in Lima, Peru. However, it is argued in this work that conventional approaches to design are no longer adequate and the design process should be distributed. As a design emerges it should be informed by the effects of design changes on factors such as environmental performance and the constructability of the building. The beach house was Thorpe and Kashuk’s (2009) first attempt to syncretise engineering and architecture, and it was prompted by their pedagogical approach to Environmentally Sustainable Design studies by third year architectural engineering students. It is possible to retain the form of a building, but its materials and methods of construction can be modified to satisfy constraints imposed by environmental consideration, for example.

However, in relation to the Bachelor‟s Degree in Engineering, MQA acknowledges the presence of foreign engineering programmes in Malaysia conducted over a period of three years. While the HEPs are free to maintain the practices of their parent campuses, the running of such programmes must comply with the existing MQA policies pertaining to the offer of foreign degrees in Malaysia. With these conditions, a three-year foreign engineering programme may be offered. However, the HEPs are obligated to provide this information and that regarding pathways, such as a top-up programmes or MEng Degrees towards recognised qualifications leading to professional recognition or registration, to potential students.
So, does anybody know what this thing stands for Integrated design electrons, what does this one stands for; Advanced technology attachment. What does this one stand for; SCSI Small computer system interface. So, essentially these are of your parallel IO bus standards or connecting to storage devices like this can you see. So, you often find ATA comes with 2 2 data, serial ATA like SATA and parallel ATA. You will probably c parallel ATA, because when you say just ATA that actually these parallel ATA, otherwise we would actually mention SATA; serial advanced technology attachment. So, PCI buses are much wider 32 or 64 bits compared to ATA or SCSI. PCI and PCI x are simpler buses, that you can see that the frequency requires PCI is the (( )) it can higher rate, actually pretty much all machines routine which PCI x. ATA and SCSI are asynchronous buses.
