Electronics at Shrewsbury Sixth Form College

Course description

Electronics is an ideal subject to take if you like a blend of the practical and the theoretical. It will be particularly useful to you if you are thinking of going on to study for a degree in engineering or physics. As a consequence it is also a very good complement to Physics at AS/A2 level.

The course will give you a thorough grounding in basic electronics and introduce you to some of the many exciting communication and control applications. The project component of the course, which counts 30% of the marks, will allow you to gain hands-on experience at designing, building and testing a system of your own choice.
