Is this the right course for me?
If you work in the electrical and/or electronic engineering industry and need to learn how to design and build or modify electronic circuits using combinational and sequential logic, this short part-time course – a module from the HNC/D in engineering syllabus – will give you the skills and knowledge you require.
What will I learn?
Studying this module will enable you to:
- Design and build or modify circuits using combinational logic
- Design and build or modify circuits using sequential logic
- Design and evaluate a digital system
What skills will I gain?
Throughout the course you will:
- Gain an understanding of digital techniques and the practical applications of both combinational and sequential logic
- Investigate the characteristics and applications of combinational and sequential logic devices
- Learn how to recognise the components, and find appropriate information to utilise them
- Design, construct and test combinational and sequential circuits using a variety of construction materials, and test equipment
- Use relevant computer software to simulate and verify circuits
- Design a digital system and evaluate it against given criteria
- Investigate the minimisation of digital circuits to improve efficiency
- Improve the digital system design through the use of programmable logic devices (PLDs)
- This is an assignment-based course and there are no exams.
- You will be continually assessed throughout the course via assignments and the production of a detailed portfolio
