EE501A: MODERN TECHNOLOGIES IN ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC ENGINEERING (2020-2021)

Last modified: 23 Jul 2020 08:55


Course Overview

The course comprises of three independent sections viz:

  1. Electrical Engineering / Renewable Energy
  2. Mechatronics / Photonics
  3. Applied Electronics / Telecommunications

Each section will introduce students to a technology of current social / academic / research interest within the three aforementioned areas. The technology will be introduced via a series of lectures / tutorials and cover key mathematical and analytical design concepts relevant to the discussed technology. Student learning of each topic will be assessed based on an individually assessed report or presentation of a design, as deemed suitable. Consequently, there will be three equally weighted assessments for this course.
