For students in the Mechanical Engineering program or by permission of the ECE Department. Fundamentals of electric circuits: circuit laws and network theorems, operational amplifiers, energy storage elements, response of first and second order systems, AC steady state anlaysis. Construction, analysis, and characterization of circuits with student-owned Lab-in-a-Box system.
This couse is designed as an introductory course to the fundamental principles of electrical engineering for mechanical engineering students. It is necessary to grasp the material in this course in order to continue in the other ECE courses designed for non-electrical engineers such as ECE 3254 and ECE courses that are designed for students who are interested in inter- and multi-disciplineary topics that form the core of the Minor in Microelectronics. This course introduces the basic circuit elements and teaches modeling, electrical laboratory techniques, and analysis skills. The experimental skills developed during the laboratory portion of the course will be applied and built upon in ECE 3254.
