After completing the course, the students should:
- Have a basic understanding of linear electrical circuits with passive components and semiconductor components
- Be able to perform theoretical analysis of linear electrical circuits with passive components and semiconductor components
- Be able to draw circuit diagrams and simulate linear electrical circuits with passive components and semiconductor components using suitable software
- Be able to use electronic measuring instruments and have knowledge of elementary measurement technique
- Be able to communicate academic knowledge in writing and orally
- Be able to participate in professional discussions in elementary electronics and share their experiences with others
Lectures, theory exercises, laboratory exercises and project work. The laboratory exercises and project include the use of both digital tools and laboratory instruments and take place in the electronics laboratory under the guidance of a teacher, laboratory staff and / or student assistants. The class is divided into groups of appropriate size so that all students have access to the necessary equipment and the help they need to solve the tasks. Laboratory exercises and project work take place in small groups. Students use computer tools for designing electronic circuits. Approval of assignments takes place through demonstration and oral explanation in the laboratory. A report must be written for the project work in addition to a demonstration in the laboratory.
Expected workload for the average student: 135 hours.
Higher Education Entrance Qualification including mathematics R1 and R2 and physics Fysikk 1, or a pass in the preliminary course examination for engineers (which is also offered at University of Agder).
