This subject introduces the fundamentals of electrical and electronic engineering. It covers engineering electromagnetics and its applications to a number of electronic components and electromagnetic devices, such as capacitors, amplifiers, inductors, transformers, motors, transducers, sensors, antennas, and wireless power transfer systems. This subject aims to give students the necessary background and technologies for the design and analysis of both low-frequency electromagnetic devices and high-frequency electronic components, as required by engineers in energy systems, telecommunications, and electronics.

Laboratory work provides an opportunity to practice the theory. Laboratory skills, ranging from electrical safety, measurements, design validation, and experimental verification, are an important focus of this subject.
