Competences and skills that will be acquired and learning results. Further information on this link
You will face up to actual analog electronics systems design, in a guided way. Circuits will have a real application, and you will move in an environment close to the one you will face in future daily work in companies of the professional electronics industry. You will use a project-based learning, taking care of functional specs determination and writing, design, simulation, implementation in subsystems, and final arrangements in a full system. Although the necessity of acquiring the fundamental concepts is kept up to achieve successful implementation of the projects, it will be achieved in a practical environment. Amplifiers stability, oscillators design, non-linear applications of operational amplifiers, are the main concept to gain. A practical environment, with a bit of classroom work, a little bit more of simulation tool tests and a lot of laboratory fieldwork, will make the methodology up. The competencies and skills to develop are: * Instrumentals - Analysis and synthesis. - The solution of problems. - Basic knowledge of the profession. - Informatic simulation tools skills. * Interpersonal - Teamwork skills. - Criticism and self-criticism abilities. * Systemics - Ability to adapt to new works. - Practical application of knowledge. - Self-learning capacity. - Project design and management. * Professionals - Electronics Projects design and development Regarding course outcomes it is worth mentioning: - Knowledge and identification of dynamic characteristics of analog systems. - Operational amplifiers applications, to know and propose. - Analog electronics subsystems: from the design table towards the prototype.

Learning activities and methodology
- Lectures to introduce fundamental concepts. - Flipped classrooms, in which the cocepts will have introduced previously by means of videos and will be discussed in the regular classroom. - Reduced group classes to solve problems and concepts application, in a triple methodology: - normal classroom: problems solution, discussion, students presentations. - Informatic classrooms to make simulations over actual circuits used in daylife in electronics. - Laboratory sessions: the key sessions, we intend that you use the most time as possible in the lab and that you learn how to use it properly, making your subsystems and systems developments of the selected Projects, under 2 teacher's supervision. Tutorial interviews with the teachers to clarify doubst related with the Projects to be implemented. Own student work by searching information on books and web, datasheets comprehensive reading and use of information, design, simulation of Projects.
