Introduction to Electrical Engineering (EE 234) Course Details

Course Name: Introduction to Electrical Engineering
Code: EE 234
Pre-requisite Course(s):
Objective: • Understand the basic electrical engineering principles and abstractions on which the design of electronic systems is based. These include lumped circuit models, digital circuits, and operational amplifiers. • Use these engineering abstractions to analyze and design simple electronic circuits. • Build circuits and take measurements of circuit variables using tools such as oscilloscopes, multimeters, signal generators, etc. Compare the measurements with the behavior predicted by mathematic models and explain the discrepancies. • Understand the relationship between the mathematical representation of circuit behavior and corresponding real-life effects. • Understand the operation of rectifier and voltage regulator. • Implement biasing circuit for transistor. • Implement adder using opamp. • Understand the operation/applications of silicon controlled rectifier (thyristor) and microprocessor. • Understand the realization of digital logic gates and memory units. • Appreciate the practical significance of the systems developed in the course.
