NUS Electrical Engineering Module Review: EE2021 Devices and Circuits

This module has a lot of theory and formulas on semiconductors. Personally, I found it quite intensive and usually took me the most time out of all my modules to revise and gain a complete understanding of what was being taught.

The assessment for this module is Homework (10%), Midterm test (20%), Quiz (5%), Final Exam (65%).

The topics covered were very structured starting from the building blocks and slowly moving on to bigger components: Semiconductors -> PN junctions -> Bipolar Junction Transistors (BJT) -> Metal Oxide Semiconductors Field Effect Transistors (MOSFET) -> CMOS Logic -> Single Stage Amplifiers -> Multistage Amplifiers -> Opamps.

This was really overwhelming and was like a bit of PC1432 again. The first part (before midterms) is usually much easier to understand than the second part. So make sure you ace the midterms.

On the whole, a difficult module indeed due to the time commitment for understanding and revision. If you can appreciate what you learn, it will greatly help in the learning process.
