Course Description

ELECTRONICS Level(s): AS FACTS Courses available AS Entry requirements How the courses are assessed 70% exam, 30% coursework Exam board AQA Where does it lead? Electronics can lead to courses in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Computing, IT and Music Technology. This subject can also lead to careers in research and many of the computing and telecommunications industries. Other information You will need to study AS Mathematics alongside Electronics or take the special support course. In each year you will undertake a project of your choice. Most people have a good idea of what Electronics is. It surrounds us now. Very few electrical devices now do not have some electronics in them, from obvious things like computers to the less obvious such as toasters and washing machines. Modern cars would not get very far without the electronics in them! You will enjoy Electronics if you want to find out how everyday devices work, want to design and build circuits, relish solving problems with modern technology, and like project work. This practical subject will give you a working knowledge of Electronics. We emphasise a - systems approach to the subject, where you will learn how to use electronic devices rather than studying the physics of how they work. This approach means that the knowledge and skills you gain during this course will not lose their value as electronic technology advances. TOPICS COVERED AS Level Introductory electronics Logic circuits Sequential systems Timers and oscillators Amplifier systems Further electronics Feedback systems Boolean algebra Filters and equalisers
