Course Description

This course introduces fundamental principles and concepts of electrical/ electronics circuits. Topics include electrical components and quantities, circuit analysis skills, DC /AC applications, and applications of semiconductors.


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

This course contributes to the following Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs):

At Associate level this course contributes to the following program learning outcomes:
1.1 Descriptive, formula-based understanding of the underpinning natural and physical sciences and the engineering fundamentals applicable to the practice area.
1.2 Procedural-level understanding of the mathematics, numerical analysis, statistics, and computer and information sciences which underpin the practice area.
1.3 In depth practical knowledge and skills within specialist sub-disciplines of the practice area.
2.2 Application of technical and practical techniques, tools and resources to well defined engineering problems.

At Bachelor level this course contributes to the following program learning outcomes:
1.1 Comprehensive, theory based understanding of the underpinning natural and physical sciences and the engineering fundamentals applicable to the engineering discipline.
1.3 In-depth understanding of specialist bodies of knowledge within the engineering discipline.
2.2 Fluent application of engineering techniques, tools and resources.


Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs)

On completion of this course, you should be able to:
1. Define basic electrical concepts and practical use of electrical components.
2. Connect series, parallel and series-parallel DC circuits
3. Demonstrate functioning of capacitors, inductors, relays and contactors, DC step response circuit and AC fundamentals
4. Define operating principles of Transformers
5. Demonstrate applications of semiconductors, Amplifiers and electronic devices, Op- Amps and applications
6. Demonstrate applications of DC and AC circuits.


 


Overview of Learning Activities

Common activities for both Associate and Bachelor levels:
● Face to Face Teaching: to obtain an introduction to electrical fundamentals, electronic devices and circuits, and an introduction to application of these principles to basic problem solving.
● Personal reading (e.g. prescribed sections of the textbook) to reinforce/strengthen their understanding of principles and applications.
● Test(s): assessed during semester. Solutions will be discussed in the class to give feedback to the students. The test provides information both to the student and the lecturer about the progress of the learning process and the feedback helps to improve the situation for final examination if necessary.
● Simulation, Videos, Lab sessions: To understand the key concepts, practical applications, analyse results, students are encouraged to watch videos on special topics available in the Carlton library. The lab work/simulations allow students to develop skills in analysing circuits, fault finding and experimentation.

At Associate level you will also learn through following additional activities:
● Practice sheets: student need to attempt solving practice sheets alone and with friends, and participation in team based learning will be helpful.
● Assignment(s): assignment will challenge students through application oriented problems, and will enhance problem solving skills.

At Bachelor level you will also learn through following additional activities:
● Project


Overview of Learning Resources

Learning resources will consist of recommended references and class notes which may be accessed through "myRMIT" if you are in Melbourne and via "RMIT online" if you are based in Vietnam.
The set of references is deliberately broad, including books, journal publications, government reports, industry standards, handbooks, and web-based resources.
