Aims

This course unit detail provides the framework for delivery in 2020/21 and may be subject to change due to any additional Covid-19 impact.  Please see Blackboard / course unit related emails for any further updates.

The course unit aims to:

  • To understand fundamental electronic circuits for engineering applications.
  • To gain ability of analysing and designing electronic circuits.
  • To gain practical skills by building and testing electronic circuits in lab, using real electronic components.

Learning outcomes

 All of the following Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) are developed and assessed. On the successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

ILO 1: Analyse common analogue circuit diagrams to identify and interpret circuit behaviours in time and frequency domains.

ILO 2: Produce circuit designs for a given specification and Select component types and values in common circuit configurations.

ILO 3: Model circuit using simulation software packages 

ILO 4: Apply analytical approaches to simple linear and non-linear circuits

ILO 5: Assembly electronic circuits using real components

ILO 6: Test electronic circuits on bread-board and analyse the measurement results from the circuits.
