Hours & Credits
This course is a practically oriented introduction to analogue electronics. Topics covered include circuit theorems, transducers, power supplies, transistor amplifiers, operational amplifiers and circuits.
Course Learning Objectives
By the end of the course, students should be able to:
1. Use a range of circuit analysis techniques to find unknown voltages and currents (BE graduate attribute 3(a))
2. Understand the basic concepts of feedback and its application to amplifier circuits (BE graduate attribute 3(a))
3. Calculate common Laplace transforms from first principles and by using a tables of common transforms and properties (BE graduate attribute 3(a))
4. Produce mathematical models of electronic circuits and electromechanical systems and apply Laplace theory to the analysis of electronic circuits, electromechanical systems and communication systems (BE graduate attribute 3(c)) and 3(b))
5. Use the Matlab programming language to solve problems in linear systems and signals (BE graduate attribute 3(f)).

Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Eligibility for courses may be subject to a placement exam and/or pre-requisites.
Some courses may require additional fees.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
Please reference fall and spring course lists as not all courses are taught during both semesters.
Availability of courses is based on enrollment numbers. All students should seek pre-approval for alternate courses in the event of last minute class cancellations
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
