TEC3191 - Engineering design

6 points, SCA Band 2, 0.125 EFTSL

Undergraduate Faculty of Engineering

Leader: A Price


Clayton Second semester 2007 (Day)


This unit extends the level of complexity of electronic design by integrating and applying knowledge from a number of second year units. Students will use knowledge from linear and non-linear electronics, computer engineering and communications engineering, to tackle a group project. Students will learn and practice project management skills, and extend their experience of working in groups. The project will extend the design processes introduced in the earlier units to a larger, more complex, and less constrained situation.


Integration and application of knowledge from different areas
practical experience of the tools of circuit design of greater complexity
experience in reading a wide range of component data and extracting the relevant information
skills to work in teams
skills to find optima in designs subject to constraints
confidence to consider many possible solutions and choose on the data available
experience of practical problems of more complex electronic constructions


Examination: (3 hours) 30%
Continuous assessment: 70%. Students must achieve a mark of 45% in each of these two components to achieve an overall pass grade.

Contact hours

2 hours lectures and 4 hours laboratory and practice classes, and 6 hours of private study per week.
