Level 3 Electronics
Teacher in Charge: Ms S. Napier
This course is for those students who want to build on their interest and knowledge gained from 2TEL course. (It can also be a stand alone course without having done 2TEL). It focuses on semiconductor devices, digital and analogue electronics concepts, design and development of an electronic product, logic gates and control, microcontrollers (including Picaxe and Arduino), and finally an open ended project. This course provides a foundation for further study at tertiary level in fields such as computer science, electronics and engineering, and for students who are interested in the electrical trades.
