General Disclaimer

SUPER ELEC MAKES NO GUARANTEE OF VALIDITY

The Super ELEC website is an online open-content collaborative wiki focused on electrical engineering related disciplines at the University of New South Wales (UNSW). However, Super ELEC is not officially affiliated with UNSW and its related entities such as ELSOC and ARC. It is a voluntary association of individuals and groups working to develop a common resource of human knowledge related to electrical engineering. The structure of the project allows anyone with an Internet connection to alter its content under moderation. Please be advised that nothing found here has necessarily been reviewed by people with the expertise required to provide you with complete, accurate or reliable information.

That is not to say that you will not find valuable and accurate information in the wiki; much of the time you will. However, the wiki cannot guarantee the validity of the information found here. The content of any given article may recently have been changed, vandalized, or altered by someone whose opinion does not correspond with the state of knowledge in the relevant fields. Note that most other encyclopedias and reference works also have disclaimers.
