0:11 Electronic and electrical systems are at the heart of almost everything that we do. You could be travelling on a train and you might be listening to music or watching an on-demand video or you could be talking to friends or you could be studying on an online course. In all of these examples you, as the user, are at the centre of an electronic and electrical system. My name's Tim Jackson from the School of Engineering at the University of Birmingham. I work in the department of Electronic Electrical and Systems Engineering. During this course you'll find out what we mean by electronic engineering, by electrical engineering and by systems engineering.

0:45 And you'll do that through examples drawn from the research that we do here in the department and from the material that we teach on our first-year courses. Our three examples illustrate the diversity and importance of electronic electrical and systems engineering. We'll begin with looking at the context behind each example because understanding context is important to designing a system that meets our needs. We'll also look at some of the underlying principles behind the methods that we'll use in our design and in our analysis. You will do some exercises that will help you develop your understanding as well as your confidence in communicating your ideas. We look forward to welcoming you to our course. [Music]

0:11 电子电气系统的重要性无处不在。您可以乘火车旅行、听音乐或观看视频点播,或与朋友聊天,或进 行在线学习。对于用户来说,以上的所有例子都体现了电子电气系统的重要性。我是来自于伯明翰大 学工程学院的蒂姆·杰克逊。我执教于电子电气和系统工程系。在本课程中,您将通过学习电子工 程、电气工程和系统工程,了解电子电气系统的重要性。

0:45 您将通过根据我系目前进行的研究以及我校一年级教材编写的范例,学习相关知识。我们采用的三个 范例阐明了电子电气和系统工程的多样性和重要性。我们首先要了解每个范例背后的具体情况,这对 于设计出能满足我们需求的系统而言至关重要。我们还将学习一些设计方法和分析方法的基本原理。 您将通过一些习题,提高理解能力,提升沟通交流过程中的自信。我们期待您的加入。 音樂
