This second year design course complements the design thread in the School, drawing from knowledge gained in first year courses on electronic circuits, programming, and digital circuits. It is also assumed that students would have been exposed to introductory engineering design concepts, such as those gained from the first year ENGG1000 course.

ELEC2117 is a design oriented course, in which students will carry out a practical electrical engineering design in the second half of session, solving an electrical engineering problem involving computer interfacing of electrical/electronic circuits. The design will be supported by relevant theory and practical proficiency gained in the first half of session. It is proposed that the design will also feature the use of a microcontroller with appropriate hardware and software support. Assessment of the course will be designed around the practical components of the course as well as as the relevant supporting theory.
