120 hours!! Seems like a long time, doesn’t it? You will need to put much more time into the course if you want to do well. At least another 40 hours!


APPLIED ELECTRONICS 

Design and construct electronic systems to meet given specifications.

Design and construct electronic systems, based on operational amplifiers, to meet given specifications.

Design and construct combinational logic systems to meet given specifications


PROGRAMMABLE SYSTEMS

Analyse and describe the operation of control systems.

Analyse the design of closed loop analogue control systems.

Develop a control sequence and use it to control a mechatronic system, by means of a microcontroller.

Develop a monitoring system based on a microcontroller, and evaluate its performance.


STRUCTURES 

Apply the conditions of static equilibrium in solving problems on concurrent force and non-concurrent force systems.

Apply the conditions of static equilibrium in solving problems on simple framed structure systems.

Use and interpret data from a tensile test in studying properties of materials.

Produce a specification for a structural component.
