This is a practical, PBL mode subject in which students work in teams to formulate responses of given problems specifically designed to integrate with the learning and content from units Linear Systems with Matlab Applications and Analogue Electronics. Teams of students will have an Electrical Engineering staff member as a 'coach/mentor or supervisor' whilst working on these problems.  A language and communication staff member will assist with the development of communications and other generic skills.
