Course content

The course will give the cadet broad knowledge in analog electronics which is an important tool in engineering problem solving, as well as form a good academic basis for further specialization and the bachelor's thesis.


The course includes: the diodes characteristics and behavior with applications, load line analysis, diode models, cutting and locking circuits and rectification, BJT transistor with DC analysis, small signal models and analysis, as well as current / voltage amplification and impedance considerations in the middle band. The field effect transistor (FET) is included with DC analysis, small signal analysis, impedance considerations, and voltage amplification.

The course also includes analysis of BJT and MOSFET amplifiers at high and low frequencies (frequency dependent amplification)



Learning outcome


After completing the topic, the cadet can:

  • Prove a good academic foundation in electrical subjects such as other courses and further personal, professional development can build on
  • reproduce broad knowledge of key concepts, results and methods in electrical science and demonstrate basic understanding of when different results and methods can be applied to solve engineering and other practical problems


After completing the topic, the cadet can:

  • conduct electrotechnical modeling
  • reason systematically, solve electronics problems and explain their results so that it highlights a problem
  • apply and explain the methods of networking and network analyzes
  • use measuring equipment in the laboratory, as well as be able to produce and interpret measurement data
  • Use relevant computer tools to analyze basic and more advanced circuits

General competence

After completing the topic, the cadet can:

  • communicate with others about electrophysics both verbally, in writing and in a formula apparatus
  • present a basic understanding of how new electrotechnical knowledge and method are developed, and what significance this has for engineering practice
Working and learning activities

Emphasis shall be on using examples from other disciplines and from the service as an illustration of the subject.

  • Review of curriculum with use of questions/discussions
  • Calculation exercises and review of exercises by student/teacher,
  • Student presentations, compulsory submissions, supervision and self-studies.
  • Laboratory exercises and computer simulations  
  • Examinations
Sensor system

Examination is carried out according to the Regulations for Admission, Studies and Examinations (in Norwegian, “Forskrift om opptak, studier og eksamen”) at the Norwegian Defence University College.
