Basic Electronic Systems

2021/2022

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Have knowledge about simple basic electronic systems
  • Be able to define and understand basic electronic system engineering terms used in the project work and have a fundamental comprehension for the applied methods, theories and/or models in electronics engineering
  • Be familiar with working processes applied to project work, acquisition of knowledge and cooperation with the supervisor

Skills

  • Be able to define and analyse a subject in basic electronic systems and analyse this subject from one or more angles of approach
  • Be able to set up solutions to non-complicated electronic system problems based on an idea generation process
  • Be able to communicate coherently the project results in a written, graphical and oral manner
  • Be able to analyse personal learning process
  • Be able to define the basic electronic engineering and contextual terms used in a project report
  • Be able to write a problem analysis and a problem formulation
  • Be able to describe the applied theories and methods to analyse the chosen problem in relevant contexts
  • Be able to create non-complicated models for the whole, or parts of, the selected electronic system

Competences

  • Be able to identify problems in basic electronic systems and reflect upon these in the problem based and project organised form of study
  • Be able to communicate the results during the project work in a project report
  • Be able to plan and reflect on own experience with project work and problem-solving techniques by applying relevant analysis methods
  • Be able to apply methods/theories during the project work in order to analyse an electronic engineering problem

Type of instruction

Project work including supervision. The project work is split in two periods: P0 for problem definition and P1 for problem solving.  The first period P0 lasts about 5-6 weeks. The work in the P0 period includes a problem analysis and a problem formulation for the subject to be dealt with in the P1 part of the project. This is documented in a P0 report including also a process analysis for the P0 period. The P0 report is presented in a P0 status and presentation seminar where the project group’s documents are discussed.

Based on the problem analysis and problem formulation the students then make a P1 project report where project goals are set up, analyses are performed and results are discussed.

Extent and expected workload

Since it is a 15 ECTS project module, the work load is expected to be 450 hours for the student.
