Column: When is it too much?

Back in the old days, Electrical Engineering students studied a bit longer than nowadays. A way to increase the success rate of students, with lower costs, was the implementation of the Twents Onderwijs Model, TOM for short. This had a lot of influence on students. The different subjects throughout the year were woven into modules. The subjects in those modules were way more coherent and the module itself had a very structured way with a project as the climax. ...

Solar Team Twente from an electrical perspective

A solar car is essentially an electric car but powered by the sun instead of the grid. Cars that Solar Team Twente has been building require a lot of electrical know how and skill to realize. One does not simply design a complete car. To get a grasp of what an electrical engineer does on a team like this a single design factor will be discussed. One that has influence on basically the complete design of the electrical system. ...
