Syllabus academic year 2010/2011
(Created 2010-07-25.)
Credits: 9. Grading scale: TH. Cycle: G2 (First Cycle). Main field: Technology. Language of instruction: The course will be given in Swedish. MIE012 overlaps following cours/es: MIE011 and MIE030. Compulsory for: M3, MD3. Course coordinator: Lecturer Bengt Simonsson,, Dept Industr Electr Engineer and Automat. Recommended prerequisits: FMAA01 One Dimensional Analysis, FAF260 Physics, basic course, EDA501 Programming, basic course. Assessment: Passed laboratory work including preparatory tests and two written partial exams. Material from the first partial exam might occur also in the second one. The grade for the course is based on the weighted mean of theresult of the two partial exams. If the partial exams are not passed, there will be one written exam for the whole course. Parts: 2.

Mechanical engineers need to use more electronics today than ever before. Most products, processes, and systems involve one or more of the following items:

To be able to structure and use such technology, the engineer needs basic knowledge of electronics. The aim of this course is to give a broad knowledge of the wide field from Ohm’s law to computer-based control of servo motors.
