Enhance Your Academic Potential

When we hear someone's CGPA and it is excellent, everyone thinks how is that possible! So, through this article I will try to tell you how you can perform better in academics (Specifically for Green University EEE department's curriculum) and put you ahead from other.

We have to know the basic structure of our courses. So, we have total 144 credit, some of these we call non departmental and some we called core course like circuit analysis, electronics I & II etc. and some are the major courses like power system, power plant engineering, power system protection etc. If we take a look at our course outlines which are provided by our course teachers at the beginning of semester, there is a part that called pre-requisite. Mainly in this article I will try to show you the points you have to focus on.

MATH 101- In this course you can see the basic algebra, function, some theorem regard finite and infinite form, ordinary and partial differential and integral (Volume and Surface integral, summing series, Gamma function and Beta function etc. This course is completely helpful for the MATH 103 course. Because all of the topic you learn from MATH 101 are interrelated with MATH 103. We can say the advance version for MATH 101 is MATH 103. If you lack in MATH 101, you have to suffer in MATH 103 course and this is the toughest math course, I think.

The pre-requisite course of MATH 205 is MATH 103. It’s all about matrix and series analysis. Note that this is the most effective course for AC circuit analysis, Continuous Signal and Linear system and Digital Signal Processing. MATH 207 is Geometry and Vector Analysis course. At the beginning of the course it is easier but after some classes it will be complex for the vector analysis. It will be mostly helpful to catch up the most common hard course ever in your graduation that is Engineering Electromagnetics. Also, MATH 207 have the Laplace transformation which can help you in Continuous Signal and Linear system and Digital Signal Processing [DSP]. MATH 209 is an interesting course for whom, they are going to research with massive data. This course will teach you how to lookup a data set & how much beautiful they are. This course is divided into two parts- Statistics and Probability. It can be helpful in research and forecasting with machine learning or data science. MATH 301 [Numerical Method] is one kind of machine learning course. This course shows you some effective algorithms and the principle of iteration to find an appropriate solution. The lab section will teach you to build the algorithm in MATLAB. The theory of math 301 will help you to understand power system I course, where some iteration methods are directly connected (like Gauss Seidel, Newton Raphson etc.)

Now we talk about our departmental courses, note that as an electrical engineer you should have proper understandability on your core courses for further progress. 1st you have the Electrical circuit I & II courses. This is the most fundamental and basic course of beginning of electrical engineering. By this two-courses' principle you can properly match up with your all core course. So don’t cheat with these courses. Same is for the Electronics I & II that will clear your basic idea of electronics, semiconductors and the pre-requisite course is chemistry and the electrical circuit (e. g KVL, KCL, Nodal & Mash Analysis). The Energy conversion is all about electric machine where the principle and fundamental working procedure are shown. This course requires the basic idea of circuit and Thevenin theorem or maximum power transfer theorem. The most difficult course ever in your graduation is Engineering Electromagnetics. To understand and get a better grade in this course you have to have clear concept of MATH 207. When you go deeper in this course you will be surprised. The Communication Theory course have lots of thoughts which can help you to further research and making project idea with IoT. If you properly learn the Continuous Signal and Linear system, you can go forward in this course. In the Control System course, you are going to learn how to design a system & making the system stable. For better performance, the continuous signal and linear system & digital signal processing course will help you a lot. Another departmental courses are the power system I, Transmission & Distribution of Electrical Energy and Power Plant Engineering. These courses are amazing and math base course. Most students can’t do well in this courses because they don’t have clear basic concept. In these three courses the basic is fundamental circuit solution, AC circuit, 3-Phase circuit and circuit model like when we design Z-Bus and Y-bus model, we need to know the T-model and Pi-Model circuit and the matrix solution, which you learn from MATH 205. So, these are some courses, we discussed. Apart from these courses we also have some course that you can handle easily.

Now we are on the tips & trick section. If you have read out the whole article, the main concern arises that what should I do? And what are the trick associate with? Let’s talk about it. If you know in advance that there will be a problem, then you will definitely find a way to defend. And that will solve 80% of your problem. By the previous section shown where you have to look and now, we’ll know how to do it. At first download the syllabus from our departmental website & point out the topic which you are going to learn. Make a hand note for each course and follow the course teacher's guided textbook. For understanding zero to deep level, you can use online platform, search it on YouTube or google. Note down all the criteria & theory for further revision whatever it's important for exam or not. After completing semester, again go to the syllabus and figure out the related topic with your upcoming course and revise it. When you solve a problem given in text book, try to relate with that. Why the problem is given, what actually means by the solution, what could be the alternative solution and its means Remember that if you skip a part of your course and stick to the study, you will definitely have to come across it again at some point. So, try to learn what it teaches and learn something with your passions.
