What we find is that these are almost all undergraduate
courses, but I expect that the number of entries for
postgraduate courses will grow.
For specialist searches (e.g. in Surface Physics)
First, we can hit the Net Search button. Then, realising that this
is a zoo, you can ask around which search engine is best for scientific
work, and to find something involving both surface and physics
surface+physics, and I scroll through to find bits of my course
at #24 out of almost 200,000 entries, not bad, but what are all
surface+physics+course, and bingo! There are around 27
entries, including 13 of my own starting at #5, 6, 8, 9 and 10: impressive
searching. But note, these can be quite out of date- my new web-address
has not yet been found by the 'bots'... Also the number of hits one gets
varies each time you ask, and the adverts are starting to get really
quite annoying and time-wasting.
More advanced searching methods exist, but the above will get you
started. This page is a part of a talk given to the
DTU Physics Colloquium in Lyngby on 10th June
1998. Latest version of this document 1st June 1998.
