Electronic Circuits

Course code ELE1502

This course introduces the fundamental ideas and devices of electronics.  It develops these ideas in an applied way to the extent that you will be able, after successful completion, to use integrated circuits, resistors and capacitors to arrange and build a range of circuits.

Electronic Circuits is designed around a group of concrete projects which you respond to, build and test.  By this approach, a realistic understanding is gained and attention is focused on those aspects of electronics as a component of the engineering industry which are most valuable.
