Description

Most people have a good idea of what Electronics is. It surrounds us now. Very few electrical devices now do not have some electronics in them, from obvious things like computers to the less obvious such as toasters and washing machines. Modern cars would not get very far without the electronics in them! You will enjoy Electronics if you want to find out how everyday devices work, want to.

Most people have a good idea of what Electronics is. It surrounds us now. Very few electrical devices now do not have some electronics in them, from obvious things like computers to the less obvious such as toasters and washing machines. Modern cars would not get very far without the electronics in them! You will enjoy Electronics if you want to find out how everyday devices work, want to design and build circuits, relish solving problems with modern technology, and like project work. This practical subject will give you a working knowledge of Electronics. We emphasise a - systems approach to the subject, where you will learn how to use electronic devices rather than studying the physics of how they work. This approach means that the knowledge and skills you gain during this course will not lose their value as electronic technology advances.
