This study aimed to provide a laboratory manual for computer simulations of electronic devices and circuits using Multisim software for Industrial Electronics and Electric VLSI Design System with WinSPICE software for ECE CAD and to determine its effectiveness. Furthermore, the main objective of this study was to provide a series of computer simulations of electronic devices and circuits that would facilitate the application of theories and principles of Industrial Electronics and ECE.
This study utilized the descriptive type of research to assess the acceptability of computer simulations of electronic devices and circuits using a computer software. The purpose of the evaluation of these courses was to assess the effectiveness of the computer simulations of electronic devices and circuits using various softwares as a medium for courseware delivery through the identification of relevant strengths and weaknesses, from both students and lecturer perspectives. Specifically, the evaluation was concerned with issues of access and use of the laboratory exercises of the computer software used, and the facilitation of teaching and learning.
The experimental type of research was also used to determine whether there was significant difference between mean performance of the experimental group exposed to software and the control group using the conventional method.
