### Course overview

The objective of this module is to enable students to learn to:
• analyse basic components of modern digital electronic circuits
• evaluate basic digital techniques, algebraic logic and processing complex logical functions

Students learn the theoretical and practical foundation of digital circuits design, and how computers execute commands and make calculations. The module is taught in the first semester and addresses the basics of digital electronics and provides students with the tools to be used in all other IT related modules of this study programme.

It is important for students to take this module in order to develop their logical and reasoning skills needed to understand how digital electronics work. The knowledge and understanding students acquire in this module will contribute to the overall skillset for their future employment. This module will expose students to a particular experience when dealing with theoretical and practical assignments related to the design of digital circuits.
