This is a core unit out of a total of 24 units in the Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Telecommunications) BEngTech (Tel). This unit addresses the appropriate BEngTech (Tel) course learning outcomes by giving students a solid ground in electrical circuit theory, which is the basis for electricity and electronics.
This unit introduces students to electrical circuit theory. Students acquire a firm foundation in the analysis of electrical circuits (both direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC)), elementary electrical measurements and the ability to use computer software for schematics and circuit simulation and analysis.
The unit covers the following topics:
At the completion of this unit students are expected to be able to:
|Assessment Task||Learning Outcomes Assessed*||Weighting|
|Laboratory/tutorial: Contribution and participation]||a-f||10%|
|Assignment 1 (Individual)||a-f||10%|
|Assignment 2 (Groups of 2‐3 students)||a-f||15%|
|Final Examination [2 hours]||a,b,d||50%|
*refer to learning outcomes above.
Note: Students are required to purchase the prescribed text book and have it available each week in class.
Prescribed Text Book:

MIT is committed to ensure the course is current, practical and relevant so that graduates are “work ready” and equipped for life-long learning. In order to accomplish this, the MIT Graduate Attributes identify the required knowledge, skills and attributes that prepare students for the industry.
The level to which Graduate Attributes covered in this unit are as follows:
|Ability to communicate||Independent and Lifelong Learning||Ethics||Analytical and Problem Solving||Cultural and Global Awareness||Team work||Specialist knowledge of a field of study|
|Levels of attainment||Extent covered|
|5||The standard is covered by theory and practice, and addressed by assessed activities in which the students always play an active role, e.g. workshops, lab submissions, assignments, demonstrations, tests, examinations|
|4||The standard is covered by theory or practice, and addressed by assessed activities in which the students mostly play an active role, e.g. discussions, reading, intepreting documents, tests, examinations|
|3||The standard is discussed in theory or practice; it is addressed by assessed activities in which the students may play an active role, e.g. lectures and discussions, reading, interpretation, workshops, presentations|
|2||The standard is presented as a side issue in theory or practice; it is not specifically assessed, but it is addressed by activities such as lectures or tutorials|
|1||The standard is not considered, there is no theory or practice or activities associated with this standard|
