Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Through interactive lectures and tutorials the students learn the material and how to find further information and keep up to date in the field. Relevance to industry is always emphasised and effort is made to prepare the students for a job in industry. The lecturers employ normal lectures supported by handouts and tutorials where the students solve tutorial examples and design circuits. Assignments are also used to train the students to work on individual tasks and submit individual reports.
The lecturers are research active and are aware of encouraging the students to look beyond current knowledge.
Standard international symbols are employed thus making it possible to work in other countries.


Formative Assessment:
The University is currently undertaking work to improve the quality of information provided on methods of assessment and feedback. Please refer to the section on Learning and Teaching Approaches above for further information about this module’s learning, teaching and assessment practices, including formative and summative approaches.
