The purpose of this practice course is to provide experimental support for the first level of all day or first and second level of all external programs in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Computer Systems Engineering, Power Engineering and Instrumentation and Control Engineering. This course provides equipment familiarisation and safety information, together with experimental work in analog and digital electronics, waveform generation, combinational and sequential logic, DC circuits and machines, rectification, series resonance, power factor correction, transformers, AC motors and generators. The principle objectives are to allow the student to develop practical skills, and knowledge of devices, equipment and techniques, to reinforce the learning of theory and develop observation and interpretation skills, and to stimulate interest and develop self confidence.
This course contains a mandatory residential school for external students and mandatory on-campus laboratories or practical classes for on-campus students.
