EEE3067W, EEE3077W, EEE3078W and EEE3079W



This page describes EEE3067W, EEE3077W, EEE3078W and EEE3079W. Each of these course codes are referred to as combined or meta courses, as they are used to combine two or more courses under one course code. The combination of courses for each course code is given below, and this is followed by a description of how these courses are planned to run. These meta course codes were originally constructed to allow Science students to do engineering courses in order to make the credits for each equivalent to either half science courses or full science courses.

The Meta Courses (comprises multiple composite courses)

The Grand Scheme behind Meta Courses

In EEE3067W and EEE3074W, a large amount of the practical component involves group work, in which students work in teams of three or four. One of the intentions with these meta-courses is for groups of students doing the meta courses to applying the concepts learn from one of the related courses to a project in another course. For example, students enrolled in EEE3079W (and thus doing EEE3074W and EEE4096S), can (in the second semester) do a project in EEE3074W that applies theories learned in EEE4096S. These meta-courses also allows for a vehicle for administrating this steam of student. At present these students are able to chose their own project groups, not necessarily having all EEE3077W students work together. These meta-courses allows a facility for students to take somewhat independent parts in certain specialized areas within a composite course, for example EEE3079W students could test fuzzy logic on an embedded system. Students in EEE3077W could work in partnership during EEE3074W projects and EEE4096S projects, possibly having specialized evaluation, for example tutors from both courses could moderate different aspects of the same project.


Previously, many of these ideas have generally not been practical due to there have been too few students (as in only 1 or 2 students) doing EEE4096 and one of the other course.

Group projects are usually 3 or 4 members. There are usually quite a few EEE3077W students, and in EEE3074W, EEE3064W students to generally encouraged to work together, using FPGA systems and other projects created in their EEE3064W course. I think students can obtain a greater depth of learning if they can work in related group, as described. Students from science automatically mingle with the rest of the engineering students during laboratory practical assignments and class activities.

Follow-up courses

EEE4084WF is recommended as a follow-on course for students who have done EEE3064W or EEE3074W, as it follows with more detailed theory for digital system design.
