This course is designed to give students a practical opportunity to develop their creative and technological skills as well as to understand the principles related to electrical and electronic engineering. In this course, students set targeted subjects to fabricate, which are related to electrical and electronic engineering, with the best of their knowledge and understanding of courses learned so far such as electromagnetism and electrical circuit.
Students work in a group of two or three to carry out a project of design and fabrication of the targeted subject. In the process of designing and fabricating the subject, students develop communication and presentation skills and acquire critical thinking skills together with practical and problem solving skills through discussions with group members and instructors.
By the end of this course, students will:
1) be able to understand the knowledge and principles related to electrical and electronic engineering more in depth.
2) have acquired critical thinking skills based on the knowledge of electrical and electronic engineering.
3) have acquired practical and problem solving skills in the process of design and fabrication.
4) have developed communication and presentation skills.
Craft and design, creative and technological skills, electronic work, group work
|Intercultural skills||✔ Communication skills||✔ Specialist skills||✔ Critical thinking skills||✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
Students are requested to willingly work on the project -- designing and fabricating the targeted subject -- in groups of two or three with support by instructors. The fabrication of targeted subject will be carried out in August. At the end of the course, students give a presentation on their achievements.
