Why did you choose your course?

I always loved opening up electronic devices and trying to figure out how they worked and this curiosity lead me to this course, Also electronics is a major part of everyday life which meant it is a great subject to be qualified in.

Are you happy with your choice of course?


On reflection, what made it the right or wrong choice for you?

The amount of practical work involved, no matter how basic your electronic knowledge, when you sit in a lab working with instructions and tools, you really get a good feel and understanding for the topic

How many hours of organised classes do you have per week? (labs,tutorials,lectures,etc)


Are your lectures/labs mainly based on or off the main campus?


Is your course weighted more on

Continuous assessment

What are your favourite aspects of your course?

Don`t have any.

Was your course what you expected?


What do you wish you had known before choosing this course?

A bit more maths could`nt have gone astray.
But i went in knowing very little on electronics and minimum amount of maths,
Its very easy to grasp as long as u keep up to date on the work given.


A lot of room,
Well stocked with books on every topic needed

great staff to keep the place silent,and a good area to study in
