The world today is dominated by electronic circuits: Communications, Computing, Control, Signal Processing, Biomedicine, Audio/Visual circuitry, and Instrumentation. This course is the introductory course to Electronics. It is a pre-requisite to several other courses in all the Electrical majors of the BENS and BENH programs.

This course introduces the fundamental ideas, theory, and devices of electronics. It develops these ideas in an applied way to the extent that the student will be able, after successful completion, to use integrated circuits, resistors, and capacitors to arrange and build a range of circuits, and to apply basic scientific and mathematical principles to analyse simple circuits.

The course is designed around a group of hardware projects which the students respond to, build, test and appropriately document. By this approach, a realistic understanding is gained, and attention is focussed on those aspects of electronics as a component of engineering industry, which are most valuable.
