This course introduces the fundamental ideas, theory and devices of electronics. It develops these ideas in an applied way to the extent that the student will be able, after successful completion, to use integrated circuits, resistors and capacitors to arrange and build a range of circuits, and to apply basic scientific and mathematical principles to analyse simple circuits.
The course is designed around a group of hardware projects which the students respond to, build, test and appropriately document. By this approach, a realistic understanding is gained and attention is focussed on those aspects of electronics as a component of engineering industry, which are most valuable.
