To give students the ability to design analogue electric circuits with specific functions at both system and discrete components level, and to evaluate the interaction between the characteristics of the devices used and the performance of the final system.

Learning Teaching & Assessment Strategy:
Concepts, principles and theories explained in Lectures, practiced in tutorials and demonstrated in laboratory sessions. ,Assimilation of taught concepts are to be revised in private study hours, performing tutorial questions on web site and feedback are provided orally in laboratory sessions and via solutions on web site. The final exam formally assesses the wider learning outcome expressed in the descriptor. Supplementary assessment is to repair deficiency in original submission.

Lectures:   20.00          Directed Study:   62.00           
Seminars/Tutorials:   4.00          Other:   0.00           
Laboratory/Practical:   12.00          Formal Exams:   2.00          Total:   100.00
