Casual academic Pay rates will apply as per the Enterprise Agreement

The school of Electrical and Electronic Engineering have two casual teaching vacancies available for Semester 1 2022:

ELEC ENG 2100 Digital Systems

This course develops engineering capabilities pertaining to the design of digital electronic systems. Designs for contemporary implementation technologies are expressed using circuit schematics and SystemVerilog, at levels of abstraction from CMOS transistor circuits up to processor microarchitecture. System architecture, microarchitecture and interfacing concepts are developed through an extended case study of a commercial microprocessor. The course operates as a flipped classroom with students attending weekly 2-hour tutorials. Preparatory lectures, reading and exercise questions are completed before tutorials. Tutorial problems are more open- ended and typically require discussion in small groups, practical design, simulation and implementation using computers and reconfigurable logic circuits. Students also undertake a group research exercise on a question related to the future of digital electronics technology.

ELEC ENG 3088 Computer Architecture and ELEC ENG 7088

This course covers the fundamental aspects of computer design. It is suitable for anyone who wants to learn how computers function in-depth and understand the trade-offs inherent in the design of computer systems. Topics covered include: quantifying cost and performance; instruction set architecture; program behaviour and measurement of instruction set use; processor datapaths and control; pipelining, handling pipeline hazards; memory hierarchies and performance; I/O devices, controllers and drivers; I/O and system performance. A variety of assessments will be undertaken during the course, including extensive use of programming assignments.
