In the first course module, students are introduced to electrical and electronic circuits. The software tools for circuit design, simulation and board layout are covered. A practical example on the design and simulation of a traffic light circuit is used to illustrate the concepts and provide meaningful experience for the students.
The e-mindset is addressed by providing students opportunity to make connections between the topics covered in this course module with real-world applications, and challenging their curious minds by extending the functionality of their project or to come up with new innovative applications of the concepts.
It is highly recommended students review the following tutorials before coming to class. This will facilitate the learning process in the classroom and makes for effective utilization of class time.
