Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
1demonstrate an understanding of foundational concepts of electricity and circuits across various fields of application
2apply knowledge of electricity and circuits to solve simple industry-related problems
3communicate how properties of electricity and circuits are used to inspire emerging trends across various fields of application
4conduct experiments involving electricity and circuits to measure and analyse basic design concepts
