EE 205 Electrical Engineering I


4 cr.


Pre- or corequisite: MATH 236 and PHYS 134.

Course Description

Students will learn about the static and dynamic behavior of resistors, capacitors, and inductors, the types of electrical energy sources used, the rules used to analyze electrical circuits, to analyze DC and AC circuits for power flow and response characteristics, how to analyze and design op amp circuits used in instrumentation applications, and how to analyze and test Combinational Logic Circuits as applicable to simple industrial and domestic control settings. Students will be able to model and mathematically describe circuit behavior under either static or dynamic conditions. To facilitate learning, this course makes extensive use of a circuit simulator and has a strong laboratory component (with a design project) to reinforce course material and develop laboratory skills with electronic instruments. Three class hours, three lab/tutorial hours.
