Course Level Recommendations
ISA offers course level recommendations in an effort to facilitate the determination of course levels by credential evaluators.We advice each institution to have their own credentials evaluator make the final decision regrading course levels.
Recommended U.S. Semester Credits2.5 - 3

Hours & Credits
OverviewThis module contains an advanced presentation of the circuit theory needed for the analysis of electrical and
electronic circuits. Topics to be covered include:-two-ports and their matrix descriptions-methods of circuit
simulation as applied to linear resistive circuits (modified nodal analysis), nonlinear resistive circuits
(Newton-Raphson) and dynamic circuits (numerical integration) -definition and properties of the Laplace
transform and the use of the transform in circuit analysis-feedback and stability -analogue filters: transfer
functions, scaling and transformation, approximation problem, passive and active realisations
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please reference fall and spring course lists as not all courses are taught during both semesters.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
