The conversion of theoretical principles into practical reality has always been a focus of teaching at The University of Adelaide.
To this end, the School has a number of general teaching and discipline-specific laboratories for practical undergraduate and postgraduate research work. These ensure students work with the right equipment for the job, learning the most up-to-date techniques as used in industry.
Room Location: N221
In this laboratory, First Year students perform experiments to demonstrate the basic principles of electronics. It hosts a range of modern test equipment including oscilloscopes, power supplies, signal generators and multimeters, as well as PCs with digital oscilloscope and data analysis software.
Room Location: EM205a
In this Laboratory, Second Year students perform experiments to demonstrate the intermediate principles of electronics. As well as common test equipment, it also hosts digital oscilloscopes and a number of desktop PCs to allow programming, and capture and printing of digital waveforms.
Room Location: EM127
In this Laboratory, Third Year students perform experiments to demonstrate the more advanced principles of electronics. This laboratory also has specialised radio frequency (RF) equipment to allow greater capacity for students to learn about this dynamic field.
Room Location: EM305
In this Laboratory, Fourth Year students spend many months developing their final year practical project. The final year project is an integral part of the last year of the course, and enables the students to draw on all the previous three years of learning to construct a working project.
Projects are often closely linked to current research undertaken by academic staff working in the School, providing the students with the best assistance available for their project, and familiarity with how the technologies are used in industry.
Room locations: N220, N230, N232, N233, EM405, EM416, EM418, EM419

Depending on their program of study, Postgraduate students typically spend between one and four years studying for their postgraduate qualification, and access to modern and comfortable work facilities is essential to their success. A number of postgraduate research suites are located throughout the School, providing postgraduate students with a networked computer, ample desk space and telephone facilities, all housed within an air-conditioned environment.
