Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.
Pre-requisites and Co-requisites
UEENEEH002B Carry out basic repairs to electronic
apparatus by replacement of components AND
UEENEEH014B Solve problems in frequency dependent

Details of Learning Activities
Learning and simulated work activities to demonstrate an understanding of the following:
Classroom learning activities involve the following topics:
• Define the basic characteristics of small signal amplifiers such as input and output impedance, current and voltage gain and bandwidth.
• Describe basics of op-amp and various operational amplifier configurations
• Explain the various operational amplifier applications
Practical exercises and work related exercises based on designing and developing project modules on amplifier fundamentals to demonstrate an understanding of the following:
• Follow safety procedures in laboratories
• Identifying various small signal amplifiers
• Identifying various operational amplifier circuit configurations and their applications.
• Measuring and calculating values of voltage gain and output voltage for various operational amplifier circuits
• Fault encompassing in amplifier circuits
• Methods for testing assumptions encompassing such as visual inspection of the amplifier circuits
• Dealing with intermittent faults in amplifier circuits

Overview of Assessment
This is a progressive assessment, the students are required to undertake summative assessments as follows:
A. Practical laboratory exercises
B. Written reports for the project.
C. Written exam
This is a progressive assessment consisting of the following:
Assessment task 1 (Practical Exercises): 30%
Practicals Exercises (30%): The students will have to design and develop the project modules (minimum three project modules) as specified by the teacher for the practical exercises and demonstrate the understanding of amplifier fundamentals through the developed project.
Assessment task 2 (Written Assessment)
Written Reports for the Project Modules :10%
Written technical report as per the requirement and specifications for each of the project modules should be submitted by each student individually.
Written Assessment : 60%
The students will have written exam to demonstrate their theoretical knowledge based on basic amplifier circuits as detailed in the course.
This course is graded using the following course grades-
CHD- Competent with High Distinction
CDI- Competent with Distinction
CC- Competent with Credit
CAG- Competency Achieved - Graded
NYC- Not Yet Competent
DNS- Did Not Submit for Assessment. (This grade is only to be used where the student’s attendance in the course has been ‘confirmed’ (but they have not participated in any form of assessment and did not withdraw by the census date.)
Make sure you understand the special consideration policy available at -
- This course is delivered in a cluster (Troubleshoot Amplifiers) in conjunction with EEET6752C (Troubleshoot Amplifiers in this cluster). All the learning and assessment activities will include the components of both UEENEEH013B, and UEENEEH039B.
- In this cluster, minimum student directed hours are 40 in addition to 80 scheduled teaching hours.
- Student directed hours involve completing activities such as reading online resources, project work, individual student-teacher course-related consultation.
