Course- Advanced Electronics

Credit Course: 3

Course Code


MSc PHYS-6131


The aim of this course is to introduce the students to the advanced concepts of electronics. The primary objective of this course is to understand and implement the advanced electronic circuits such as amplifiers etc with the help of theoretical and practical problem solving.

It is required from the students to understand the analog electronic circuit which in turn are used as the building blocks of the larger and more complex systems.
