Level 3 Electronics

Subject Description

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.  

Recommended Prior Learning

Either 14 credits at NCEA Level 2 Physics, or 13 Level 2 Electronics credits, or by consultation with Ms Napier.

Approximate Costs and Equipment/Stationery

Each student can elect to design and build a project. The cost will depend on the project selected, but up to approx. $20.
