Administrative matters


Purpose of the course:

The course has a multi - orientation shaping the sophistication on these topics  and helping the overall maturity. This course presents the overall knowledge and capabilities of the student at the end of his studies.

 a) Point out the ability to solve a problem

 b) Points out the ability to improve a solution.

 c) Points out the ability to optimize a solution.

 d) Points out the ability to consider other nor engineering factors in an engineering project

 e) Strengthen the ability to conduct a project individually or as a member of a team.

 f) Introduce interim report preparation

 g) Introduce final report preparation

 h) Emphasize the use of laboratory equipment 

 i) Emphasize the use of simulation tools

 j) Implement physical laboratory prototyping

 k) Describe mathematically the physical operation of the various electronic devices

 l) Point out the capabilities and limitation of the various electronic devices, circuits, and systems.

 m) Introduce data sheets of the various electronic devices.

 n) Introduce application notes for the various electronic devices

 o) Use of physical operation and circuit properties of various electronic devices to implement problem solution.

 p) Emphasize the sequence: Underlining Physical Principle - Physical properties - Mathematical Model of a Real Situation Case - Mathematical Method - Real problem - Specification - Assumptions - Solution - Simulation - Implementation - Measurements - Optimization - Final product.



The final grade (F.G.) is determined from the following:
 a) Laboratory Notebook Inspection (LN1, ... LN15) during the semester , each one counting 2% of the final grade, for a total of 30 points.
 b) Report Preparation (RP1,... RP3) during the semester, each one counting counting 5% of the final grade, for a total of 15 points.
 c) Final Report (FR) at the end of the semester, counting 30% of the final grade.

 d) Presentation (P) of the Report at the end of the semester, counting 10% of the final grade.

 e) Attendance and Participation (AP), counting 15% of the final grade.


The total number of points will result in the following letter grade:

 F.G. = LN1 + ... + LN15 + PP1+ ... + PP3 + FP + P + AP


 96-100 -> A

 91-95 -> A-
 87-90 -> B+
 84-86 -> B

 81-83 -> B-
 77-80 -> C+
 74-76 -> C

 71-73 -> C-
 67-70 -> D+

 64-66 -> D

 61-63 -> D-
 00-60 -> F



 Late homework will not be accepted.



 There is not formal examination in this course. The final grade will be determined as described above.



 It expected that you will be present in every meeting. Unsuitable absences will result in reporting to the Early Academic Warning System and possible removable from the course.
