Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

This paper is aimed at covering the principles of advanced engineering systems analysis in electrical circuit theory, active and passive components, analogue and mixed signal circuits, signal processing and communications.

This paper is primarily for the students who have completed their first degree in an overseas institution. Therefore domestic students should not enroll for this paper if they are in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering major.

Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content

This paper is to review many electrical engineering concepts covered in a typical electrical and electronic engineering (EEE) undergraduate course. The paper is divided into five subsets covering essential topics in EEE areas and each lecturer will be providing self study guidelines, Moodle uploads, or panopto recordings. Individual lecturers (or their sessional assistants) will announce times for optional discussion sessions, as and when required.

Some of the revision material may be mostly based on teaching material we provide in our electronic engineering undergraduate subjects, and the students may be encouraged to follow those course material and assessments.

There will be no timetabled lectures . Any laboratory exercises will have to be completed during the time tabled laboratory time slot, unless otherwise negotiated with the relevant academic. Tutorial time slots may be used by teaching team to give additional guidelines on the self study process.

Times indicated for submitting assessments are only as a guidelines. Individual deadlines and required details will be indicated by the teaching team.

Assessment Components

Edit Assessments Content

The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50. There is no final exam. The final exam makes up 50% of the overall mark.

The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50 or 0:0, whichever is more favourable for the student. The final exam makes up either 50% or 0% of the overall mark.

Workload

Edit Workload Content
Students are expected to attend weekly labs, starting after week one which will be approximately three hours each. This course being a self-study type with limited discussion sessions of no more than one hour per week, students are expected to do self study work of approximately 20 hours per week, including the preparatory work for the final examination.
