Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Use safe and ethical laboratory practice and describe some environmental impacts of the electronic engineering industry.
LO2 Interpret schematic diagrams and realise the circuits.
LO3 Perform measurements on a circuit using suitable test equipment.
LO4 Deliver an oral presentation, with supporting slides on a given topic.
LO5 Write a formal academic report to a required technical and academic standard.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named MTU module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
