1. First Year - General Engineering and
Electrical Courses

1.1. Engineering 1h - E&EE Section
1.2. Electrical Engineering 1h
1.3. Electronics 1h

There are three first year courses that support degrees containing Electronic and Electrical Engineering, one of
which run in the first half of the year, and two which run in the second.
The two half courses that run in the second half of the year are:

1. Electrical Engineering 1h, and
2. Electronics 1h.
1.1. Engineering 1h - E&EE Section [HMR]

Last Revised: 10/01
Aims: Note that this module is one-quarter of a half course entitled "Engineering 1h". The other three modules are
the responsibility of the Division of Engineering.
The aim of this module is to revise (or teach, as necessary) basic electrical circuit theory, from an engineering rather
than a physics perspective. The course emphasises the physical understanding of circuit operation and the power
consumed and energy dissipated.
Learning Outcomes: By the end of this course students should be able to make appropriate use of simple circuit
techniques, such as Thevenin's theorem and mesh analysis to solve basic DC problems.
Assessment: Assessment for Engineering 1h is by a three hour written exam of which this module will comprise one
Course Text: Background reading: CITATION NOT FOUND IN BOOKLIST

1.2. Electrical Engineering 1h [HMR/LIH/AFM]

Last Revised: 10/01
Pre-requisites: Prior attendance at Engineering 1h.
Aims: To teach the fundamental principles of electric and electronic circuit analysis. To exercise these skills in the
context of both passive and active circuits to build the link between basic concepts, mathematical formalisms and
practical applications. To build a primary understanding of the structure and function of some common
microelectronic devices. This course aims to homogenise students' state of knowledge and skills across the range of
basic electrical subjects, in preparation for detailed and more specific study in subsequent years.
Learning Outcomes: A student should be able to:

Analyse simple DC circuits using Ohm's law, Kirchoff's laws and nodal analysis.
Analyse DC and AC Op-amp circuits from first principles and from abstracted rules.
Describe the principle of feedback.
Use complex numbers to describe AC signals.
Analyse circuits involving resistors, inductors and capacitors using phasors and complex numbers.
Analyse simple Op-amp circuits from first principles (Ohm's and Kirchoff's Laws only) and from
simplified rules.
Analyse and design more complex Op-amp circuits using a "recipe" - a set of simplified analytical
("Golden") rules.
Describe negative and positive feedback in Op-amp circuits.
Analyse simple RC and RL passive filter circuits using phasors and complex numbers.
Analyse very simple active filter circuits using complex numbers.
Describe the principles and some of the technological issues in A-D and D-A conversion.
Describe conduction mechanisms in an intrinsic semiconductor and silicon as an extrinsic semiconductor.
Describe the mechanism for doping silicon p-type or n-type.
