Content

This is a project and design-based unit which introduces students to the fundamentals of electrical systems, covering three main topics; electricity basics including capacitance, resistance, inductance and EMF; electric circuits; and semi-conductor devices. The unit will also introduce students to elements of professional practice including OHS, professional ethics and sustainability in the context of engineering projects. Students will work in groups, using their knowledge gained through classes, studios and practical experiences, the concepts covered in the seminar sessions, as well as knowledge gained from self-directed learning to complete their design of an electrical systems project meeting specified requirements. Students will communicate the considerations taken in their design in a variety of forms including written assessments tasks and a group presentation.

Hurdle requirement

To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must receive at least 40% in the group presentation, and at least 50% in the individual portfolio.
