Objectives of Programme's Learning Outcomes

  • Implement an engineering approach dealing with a set problem taking into account technical, economic and environmental constraints
    • Understand the stages of an engineering approach
    • Design, evaluate and optimise solutions addressing the problem
    • Implement a chosen solution in the form of a drawing, a schema, a plan, a model, a prototype, software and/or digital model
    • Identify and acquire the information and skills needed to solve the problem
  • Understand the theoretical and methodological fundamentals in science and engineering to solve problems involving these disciplines
    • Identify, describe and explain the basic principles of engineering particularly in their specialising field
    • Understand laboratory techniques: testing, measuring, monitoring protocol, and security
    • Select and rigorously apply knowledge, tools and methods in sciences and engineering to solve problems involving these disciplines
  • Understand the fundamentals of project management to carry out a set project, individually or as part of a team
    • Respect deadlines and timescales
  • Collaborate, work in a team
    • Interact effectively with other students to carry out collaborative projects.
  • Communicate in a structured way - both orally and in writing, in French and English - giving clear, accurate, reasoned information
    • Argue to and persuade customers, teachers and a board both orally and in writing
    • Use several methods of written and graphic communication: text, tables, equations, sketches, maps, graphs, etc.
    • Give an effective oral presentation, using presentation materials appropriately
    • Present analysis or experiment results in laboratory reports
  • Demonstrate thoroughness and independence throughout their studies
    • Develop their scientific curiosity and open-mindedness

Learning Outcomes of UE

At the end of the course, students have to be able: to understand and exploit the functions of basic electronic components in basic quadripoles: amplifiers, filters and assemblies for various circuits based on operational amplifiers. To analyze and design under practical constraints, quadripole assemblies, to deduce their global function, their practical role and estimate their performance, especially for small chain of measurements. To master the different analog and digital electronic instruments available at the laboratory for measurement of current, voltage, phase shifts and to analyse their basic characteristics, including the calculation of errors. To understand the use of simulation tools for electric circuits and systems.

Content of UE

Theory-exercises mode course, in face-to-face mode, preferably. In the case of eventual sanitary problems, the course will be switched to distance mode. Students must be present during the first course lecture and all exercices lectures.  Contents: introduction to electronics functions and measurement chains. Basic electronic devices: theory and applications, diodes, transistors, amplifiers, filters, function generator, stabilized power supply. Application of measurement chains 1: analog-electronic measurement instruments.Application of measurement chains 2: digital measurement instruments. Sensors. Application of measurment chains 3: measurement of physical parameters. Methods for measuring electrical signals of medium and large amplitudes.

Type of Assessment for UE in Q1

  • Written examination
  • Practical test
  • Graded tests

Q1 UE Assessment Comments

 -Evaluation of practical work, one per TP (25min): 10%. -Exam of exercises (before session, open book, 3 hours): 50%.  -Written examination (closed book),during session, 3hs, questions on the theory, considerations and exercises on any topics of the course that allows us to determine if the student has adquired an overview of the course and if he matters it. We avoid the simple restitution of a topic without a deep understanding): 40%. NB : In order to avoid any kind of speculation, all points will be disclosed after the correction of the written examination during session.

Type of Assessment for UE in Q3

  • Written examination
  • Graded tests

Q3 UE Assessment Comments

Written exam: questions  and reflections on the theory (closed book, 2 hours). Weight: 50%.  -Exam of exercises (open book, 2 hours). Weight: 50%. NOTE: Students who have approved  during  the first session either the theoretical  or the exercises examination with a grade greater or equal to 10/20 will be exempted of redoing the corresponding exam in the second session.
