Teaching/Learning
Methodology


The learning method of this subject
consists of

class lectures, tutorials,
laboratory exercises.

The lectures
are used to help students to
understand
the
fundamen
tal principles and techniques in related to automation as indicated
in the syllabus
.
Tutorials are given to clarify issues may arise from the
lectures and practicing the circuit designs
, analytical skills, etc
.
L
aboratory
exercises
are incorporated to give

students
more practical familiarity on
relevant areas
.

Each laboratory

exercise would be divided into two parts such that the group
work would have to be submitted by the end of
the

laboratory
class while the
individual component ca
n be hand
-
in afterward.
Tutorials would be provided
to students to improve their understanding of the subject materials and
finally, an examination

will be given to
assist the assessment of

students’
learning outcomes.
