G3. Self-directed learning
G7. Ability to conceive, design, implement and operate systems and services in the field of Information Technologies and Communication
CB2. Students should be able to know how to apply their knowledge to their work or vocation in a professional manner and possess skills that tend to be demonstrated through the elaboration and defense of arguments and solving problems within their field of study
CB5. Students should develop the learning skills needed to undertake further study with a high degree of autonomy
At the end of the course the student will be capable of:
In the schedule prepared by the faculty, six hours per group are reserved weekly for the teaching of the course. Several of these hours (typically three or four hours weekly) are employed in the designated classroom, until completion of the planned theoretical classes (approximately 45 hours). During these sessions theoretical and participative lectures are included. Exercises solving sessions are alternated with the theoretical sessions to clarify the concepts studied. Exercises will be posed to the students to be solved autonomously, being its resolution a fundamental part for the correct assimilation of the theory.
The 15 hours of practical sessions will be devoted to experimental or simulation laboratory sessions in small groups where teamwork will be encouraged. These sessions are distributed along the semester and are included within the hours reserved by the faculty for the course.

|Performance and reporting laboratory sessions
|4 in all the avaluation activities
The ordinary evaluation will consist of two parts: one part with theoretical exams on the contents seen in the lectures and one part in which the performance and reports made after the laboratory sessions will be assessed.
The theory exams will be divided into two tests, to be held halfway through the semester and at the end of the semester. In order to pass the course, a mark of over 40% in both tests and an average mark of over 50% between both is required. The exams can be recovered.
Performance and reports in the laboratory sessions will be assessed based on the work carried out during the sessions and the reports presented. No minimum grade will be required, and it is not recoverable.
In order to pass the course, the average of both evaluation activities must exceed 50%. In addition, in order to be able to take the evaluation tests, it is necessary to attend and participate in all the laboratory practices. Unexcused absence from any of the practical sessions will automatically result in the failure of the course.Extraordinary evaluation
It will consist of two theoretical exams that will allow the student to retake those parts of the subject that have not been passed in the ordinary evaluation. The conditions and format are similar to those of the ordinary exams.
This course is part of the area Fundamentals of electronics, which includes also the corresponding course in the second semester of the first course. Thus, the contents of Electronics Circuits are based on what the student has learned in this previous course. Also, it is advised that the student has also taken the course Signals and Systems I, as many of its proficiencies are required and its knowledge is assumed.
The subject Electronic Circuits covers basic electronic circuits, electronic components and devices, analogue circuits and amplifier circuits.
There will be 6 practical sessions lasting 2 hours each, covering the most relevant applications of the contents of the course. An additional session of 3 hours is reserved for recovery.
