All details in this unit profile for ENEX12002 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student).
The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction included in the profile.
General Information


This unit will introduce you to the fundamentals of analog and digital electronics. You will learn the theory of operation commonly used in active and passive electronic components such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes, transistors, signal & power amplifiers, oscillators, and Op-amps. This unit will provide you with sufficient knowledge of Boolean algebra necessary to understand digital electronics. You will learn logic gates, combinational logic circuits, logic minimization, flip-flops, counters, shift-registers, memory, and multiplexers. You will develop skills in analysing electronic circuits and modelling of analog and digital circuits using industry-standard simulation software packages. During this unit, you will design analog and digital systems for real-world applications and test them in simulation software. This unit will also provide you with an opportunity to further develop their professional skills such as communication, technical writing, and individual presentations. In this unit, you must complete compulsory practical activities. Refer to the Engineering Undergraduate Course Moodle site for proposed dates.

Offerings For Term 1 - 2022

Mixed Mode

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Residential Schools

This unit has a Compulsory Residential School for distance mode students and the details are:

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Formal unit evaluation response.


Add more example questions from the textbook and discuss them in the live class sessions.


Most of the theory parts will be available as prerecorded lectures which students can follow prior to the weekly live tutorial session. This will free up some additional time to discuss more questions from the textbook during the live tutorial sessions.

Feedback from Self-reflection.


Interaction and participation of students in the online class were very minimal.


More interactive content such as live demos and simulations will be included in the live class sessions. Informal assessment methods will be added to the pre-recorded lectures to track students' learning outcomes. Students will be encouraged to use communication channels such as Microsoft Teams to interact with the lecturers and other students.
