In order to enrol in this subject, you must be accepted into one of the following degrees:
No special requirements
In this subject you will learn about the fundamentals of electrical circuits and systems. This includes studying voltage, current, impedance, electrical energy, power and resistors, inductors, capacitors, and electrical units and measurements. You will also investigate operational amplifiers, sensors and actuators, and simple controllers. There will be opportunities to interact with other students and lecturers, perform circuit analysis, calculate electrical quantities, and report back on experiments. You will develop practical skills and knowledge of devices, equipment and techniques. You will learn how to calculate, observe, analyse and problem solve through applied learning and will complete a practical project to develop hands-on application skills.
In conjunction with the discipline theory, this subject introduces learning through practice by exposing you to authentic learning experiences. These experiences are placed at the centre of learning and assessment, so you have the opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours necessary to respond to industry, community and/or global needs.
You will be introduced to:
- a range of methods, tools, techniques and approaches to practice
- principles and perspectives such as values, ethics, empathy and leadership in real world scenarios
- reflection and deliberative thinking as a means of developing knowledge, skills, attitudes and aspirations
- ways of understanding problems and developing solutions through active inquiry.
