Electrical Networks and Resonance

North East Scotland College


Off campus


This Unit was developed for the HNC/HND Electronics Group Awards or may be taken as a stand alone HN Unit. It will meet learning needs of candidates by exploring electronic and electrical principles.

Studying this Unit will provide you with the opportunity to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to apply network theorems to the solution of electronic and electrical circuits. Such theorems underpin much of the work in electronics, so it is important to have an in-depth understanding of these topics.

Credit points and level: 1 HN credit at SCQF Level 7: (8 SCQF credit points at SCQF Level 7)
