Module Overview

This module introduces the students to basic electronic design and construction of prototypes. Students will have the opportunity for real world application in assembling and testing electronic display boards, Physics and Engineering show and tell, electronic dice, water detectors and night light activation circuit.


The activities planned for the ApLM offer practical and authentic experiences that typical polytechnic engineering students and electronics engineers in the industry undergo. Facilitators will use the ApLM to introduce relevant polytechnic courses such as Diploma in Electronics, Diploma in Aerospace Electronics and Common Engineering Programme.


This module will be conducted within a duration of 22.5 hours.
