This competency is taught in conjunction with "UEENEEH015B: Develop and test code for microcontroller devices- ISYS5665C". Therefore teaching schedule and assessment includes both competencies. 

Assessment task 1:20% (Week 8)

This will be a practical test. This practical test will be available on the learning hub and student’s local drive.

Assessment task 2: 40% (Week 16)
A student project:- Students will be required to design, construct, test and debug the project hardware and software and will be required to produce a project report. The project details will be provided on the learning hub and student’s local drive.

Assessment task 3 : 40% (Week 18)
A closed book test on All the learning aspects of these competencies. The exam will be based on what students have learned in their tutorial/practical exercises and their student project.

Assessment task1 and assessment task 2 will be available to students in week no. 1. These will be available on learning hub and student’s local drive
