Basic Electronic Systems


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives


  • 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


  • 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


  • 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
  • Be able to contribute to team work, cooperate, handle conflicts and ensure motivation in the project work

Type of instruction

Project work including supervision may be supplemented with lectures, workshops, presentation seminars, consultant meetings regarding PBL content, laboratory tests, etc. The project can be discipline oriented, interdisciplinary or be a part of a multi-disciplinary project dependent on project choice. 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 written in a P0 document including also a process analysis for the P0 period. The P0 document is presented in a P0 status and presentation seminar as part of the course in Problem Based Learning, 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. The project report should contain: Problem analysis, problem formulation, problem solution, analyses and results, as well as discussion and conclusion.

Extent and expected workload

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


Prerequisite for enrollment for the exam

  • It is a precondition for participation in the exam that the student has submitted a P0 report and has participated in the P0 status and presentation seminar.
