- awareness of, and capacity to discuss, contemporary issues in the design of electrical
and electronic systems;
- competence in communication skills appropriate to professional design work;
- detailed understanding of selected design examples, exercises and case studies.

|Special Assessment Requirements:
||Students are required to demonstrate professionalism in the subject by timely submission
of all assessable work and regular attendance at scheduled group activities and lectures
where equivalent on-line materials have not been identified. Attendance will be monitored
through feedback and assessment submissions, and unprofessional conduct will require
additional assessment tasks are undertaken before a subject grade will be awarded.
This policy is detailed in the subject outline.
Minor variations might occur due to the continuous Subject quality improvement process,
