Engineering supervisions

In the list below, #M, #L and #E refer to the number of supervisions in Michaelmas, Lent and Easter terms respectively.

  • Electromagnetics and Physical Principles of Electronics (IA).
    Usually 3 supervisions (1M+2L).
    - Examples Papers pe3/1, em3/1, em3/2.
  • Linear Circuits and Devices (IA).
    Usually 5 supervisions (2M+3L or 3M+2L).
    - Examples Papers lc3/1, lc3/2, lc3/3, lc3/4 and lc3/5.
    - You may find useful this document on resonators Q-factor, frequency response and -3dB bandwidth.
  • Digital Circuits and Information Processing (IA).
    Usually 3 supervisions (3E). There are 4 examples papers, i.e. we need to cover 1⅓ examples papers in each supervision on average.
    - Examples Papers dc3/1, dc3/2, dc3/3 and dc3/4.
  • Probability (IB).
    Usually 2 supervisions (2L). Elements of set theory are useful so you may want to brush up on that.
    - Examples Papers 7/5 and 7/6.
  • Signal and Data Analysis (IB).
    Usually 3 supervisions (3L). You should not underestimate this course. Make sure you allocate some good time for supervision work and brush up on the maths required for solving the questions. Rushed supervision work for this course never turns out well.
    - Examples Papers 6/5, 6/6 and 6/7.
  • Communications (IB).
    Usually 2 supervisions (1L+1E). Like Signal Analysis above, this is part of the Information Engineering course. Similar tips hold here as above for Signal and Data Analysis.
    - Examples Papers 6/8 and 6/9.
  • Integrated Digital Electronics (3B2, IIA).
    Usually 4 supervisions (4L). The logic circuits part is quite accessible but it's wise not to take the integrated digital electronics part too lightly. Make sure you dedicate some proper time for supervision work.
    - Examples Papers lc1, lc2, ide1 and ide2.
