Learning Results:

The module Electronics I is a clearly explained in depth introduction to electronic semiconductors devices and circuits and their concepts. It provides essential understanding of semiconductor device characteristics, testing and practical circuits. It establishes the foundation of the electronics principles of the diodes and the bipolar transistors. Also, the student can understand the operation and troubleshooting of electronics systems. The student acquires knowledge about the use of the above circuits and learns how to solve and deal with related practical problems and issues. In addition the students acquire the knowledge and practical skills to analyse and understand the above electronic circuits. With the appropriately designed laboratory exercises and circuits that the students are required to prepare, they acquire the experience to construct and characterise experimentally a series of practical circuit and at the same they learn how to use efficiently laboratoty instrumentation.
