This unit covers the application of computational processes to solve engineering problems. It encompasses working safely, applying problem solving techniques, using a range of mathematical processes, providing solutions to electrical/electronics engineering problems and justifying such solutions.

Unit details

Study level:
Vocational and further education (TAFE)
Unit code:


A student must have completed one of the following pre-requisites: UEENEEE029B Solve electrotechnical problems; UEENEEG102A Solve problems in low voltage a.c. circuits, or; UEENEEH014B Troubleshoot frequency dependent circuits.


Assessment tasks will be designed to reinforce and extend knowledge and skill competence within set and controlled parameters in accordance with each unit's learning outcomes and performance criteria requirements, including the setting of work based practical application tasks designed to provide evidence of competence outcomes, within periodic and scheduled timelines. Students will be expected to demonstrate the following required skills and knowledge: - rational, irrational numbers and basic algebra; - algebraic manipulation; - law of indices; - estimations, errors and approximations; - plane figures - triangles and basic trigonometry; - plane figures - quadrilaterals and circles; - graphs of Trigonometric functions; - graphs of linear functions; - simultaneous equations; - matrices; - quadratic functions; - exponential and logarithmic functions; - vectors and phasors, and; - complex numbers.
