  • Topic 1

    Course Objectives 

    The basic objective of this course is to introduce students to the fundamental theory and mathematics for the analysis of Alternating Current (AC) electrical circuits, frequency response and transfer function of circuits. Through the material presented in this course, students will learn:

    • The fundamental principles in electric circuit theory and to be able to extend these principles into a way of thinking for problem solving in mathematics, science, and engineering
    • To analyze analog circuits that include energy storage elements in the time and frequency domains, both theoretically and experimentally
    • Ways in which electrical engineering shapes and benefits society
    • To improve the oral, graphical, and written communication skills
    • how to work effectively both individually and in groups
    • To evaluate the personal learning process and understanding of the concepts and skills from class
