ELEC2100: Fundamentals of Elec and Electronic Eng

2024 unit information

This unit of study aims to develop knowledge of the fundamental concepts and building blocks of electrical and electronics circuits. This is afoundation unit in circuit theory. Circuit theory is the electrical engineer's fundamental tool. The concepts learnt in this unit will be made use ofheavily in many units of study (in later years) in the areas of electronics, instrumentation, electrical machines, power systems, communicationsystems, and signal processing.

Unit details and rules

Managing faculty or University school:

Electrical and Information Engineering

Code ELEC2100
Academic unit Electrical and Information Engineering
Credit points 6
Assumed knowledge:
Basic knowledge of differentiation and integration. Electromagnetism and circuit components as covered in PHYS1003 are also useful

At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

  • LO1. synthesise information from diverse sources to make clear and meaningful conclusions with respect to the lab and tutorial work
  • LO2. clearly explain the workings of the circuits in the lab experiments and lab tests
  • LO3. work constructively in a team do conduct lab experiments by drawing on diverse skills and aptitudes of the team members
  • LO4. analyse performance of electrical and electronic circuits including the ability to recognize engineering limitations
  • LO5. use electronic lab equipment to make electrical measurements and interpret them
  • LO6. analyse and design simple circuits using a clearly defined system based approach to solve a specific problem
  • LO7. demonstrate a basic understanding of the physics behind working of inductors, resistors and capacitors
