18 Oct Future Education Switzerland

Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences (SATW)
2009
In the future, over two thirds of a class should gain a qualification for tertiary education. At the same time the development of interpersonal skills need to be supported. Education should not just provide the knowledge to perform professional duties; it should also provide a deeper understanding in order to deal appropriately with the world and society. This is what the Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences are proposing in their under the lead of SATW established white paper “Zukunft Bildung Schweiz” (Future Education Switzerland). It defines the requirements on the Swiss education system in 2030 using a scenario to describe the future understanding of education in Switzerland. Based on this it makes recommendations on the Swiss education strategy and describes its implementation in a roadmap.

18 Oct Metallurgy: Science and Engineering

National Academy of Technologies of France (NATF)
2011
Metallurgy, the science of metals and the technical disciplines concerned with the production, shaping and assembling of metals, is one of the major assets of European economy. The analysis in this book is, however, strictly limited to the French situation but, with additional work, could be extended to Europe. The current state of metallurgy in France is not good. It can rapidly become catastrophic if nothing is done to remedy to it quickly. The report repositions metallurgy in its double role of a science and engineering discipline form two perspectives: of “needs” and of “opportunities”. It provides 5 key recommendations for immediate actions.

18 Oct Policies of the European engineering academies regarding the forming for an engineering career and also the increase of activity towards it / Politici ale academiilor de inginerie europene în problema formării pentru cariera inginerească şi creşterea

Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences (ASTR)
2013
At the end of this paper, a series of conclusions are presented: ones to guide towards the increase of the attraction of the youth towards different engineering, math and physics domains, the importance of the engineer in the society, and in conjuction with this, the correct evaluation of the place and contribution that can be brought to the development of the society.

18 Oct Continuing professional development in the fields of advanced automation, ICT and knowledge management / Formarea profesională continuă a inginerilor în domeniile automatică avansată, TIC şi managementul cunoştinţelor

Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences (ASTR)
2013
In this paper are presented courses developed at the regional center from Technical University "Gheorghe Asachi" of Iasi. These courses have been developed based on the analysis made with industrial partners from the North-East Region on the engineers training needs in the three fields.

18 Oct Research and Education on Renewable Energy Systems in the Transilvania University of Braşov, Romania / Cercetare și educație în domeniul sistemelor de energii regenerabile în cadrul Universității „Transilvania“ din Brașov, România

Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences (ASTR)
2013
The paper presents the strategy, actions and relevant results obtained in developing and implementing the concepts of Sustainable Development and Renewable Energy Systems in the "Transilvania" University of Brasov, by integrating education and training (in the Faculty of Product Design and Environment) with research (in the R&D Centre Renewable Energy Systems and Recycling -RESREC).

18 Oct Two fundamental questions on the essence of the direct method from finite speed thermodynamics and its difference from other methods of irreversible engineering thermodynamics / Două întrebări fundamentale privind esența metodei directe din termodina

Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences (ASTR)
2013
The paper essentially consists of the answers to two important questions related directly to Fundamentals of the Finite Speed Thermodynamics (TVF) and Direct Method (DM), namely, (1) what is Direct Method? Why is it called so? There is also an "indirect method"?, respectively (2) how can First Law for processes with Finite Speed catch irreversibility of these processes, knowing that First Law represents an energy balance of the system, and that it also "catches what remains in the system?".

18 Oct Effect of irreversibilities estimated with the direct method on the Stirling engine performance

Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences (ASTR)
2013
The paper presents new computation scheme of Stirling engine performance that was elaborated in the frame of Thermodynamics with Finite Speed and the Direct Method. Based on the new expression of the First Law of Thermodynamics for Irreversible Processes with Finite Speed that is integrated on each process of the cycle, a completely analytical model of the Stirling engine cycle is developed.

18 Oct A numerical solution for a plane problem of elasticity

Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences (ASTR)
2013
Plane elasticity problems which fulfil the solving requirements with the help of the biharmonic equation of plane elasticity can be solved, in many cases, using the integration of the equation with finite differences method. In this paper is presented an extension of the field of application of this equation in double conex domains (octogonal diaphragm with a central square gap).

18 Oct Considerations regardind the mathematical, technical and business management components of engineering education / Consideraţii privind componentele: matematică, tehnică şi management ale educaţiei inginereşti

Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences (ASTR)
2013
The engineering education has necessarily to include a significant part of Mathematics, Physics, general technics and business management besides speciality knowledge, in a dynamical, interacting complex. As a conceiver and producer of goods, the engineer finds himself at a beginning of chain; he also must have in mind and influence the middle and the end of chain containing the evaluation on market.
