Course Aims

The course teaches the basic electronic systems, signals and basic computing theory. The aim of this course is to develop students from different disciplines on their fundamental understanding of simple electronic systems, in order to allow students  to turn their ideas into a simple  design work, supplemented by lectures and hands-on training. At the final four weeks of the course, students from different majors will form multi-disciplinary project groups for exploring real problems and their possible electronic and computing design.  Each project group will be provided with a low-cost and easy-to-use tiny computer board (unit) with some build-in features for sensing body movements, displaying texts and graphics, informing the environmental temperature, etc., that allow the students to realize their own functional products.
