Material available for this course in Itslearning including slides and example calculations as well as links to online material.
In independent study you can use any electronics book for engineers (introductory level) and any available online material.
Lectures, preliminary assignments and calculations, laboratory work.
Course consists of two parts:
- Introduction to circuits and measurement techniques (weight 60 %)
- Introduction to electronics (transistors, opamps and logic gates) (weight 40 %)
Both parts need to be completed with a passing grade.
Missing work receives a grade of -3.
Only tasks returned on time will be evaluated.
Redoing failed or missing parts must be agreed with the teacher separately. Laboratory work or reports with passing grade cannot be retaken.

The emphasis is on the laboratory reports. The date for the laboratory test can be found in ITSlearning.
One laboratory session at the end of the course is for completing a missing lab work or redoing a failed assignment.
Grade for a passed lab work cannot be raised.
Flipped learning, hands on working, combining theory and practice during lab work.
Lectures: 7x 2 h = 14 h
Lab. sessions: 13x 3 h = 39 h
Independent study: 20 h
Preliminary assignments: 26 h
Finishing reports: 26 h
Course includes building simple circuits on a protoboard and basic measurements. This includes the use of a protoboard, multimeter, signal generator and oscilloscope. After learning to use these instruments, we build circuits with transistors, operational amplifiers and logic gates.
Course is held in Autumn 2022.
More accurate description and timetable is found on ITSlearning.
