Hours & Credits
OverviewThis is a first course in electrical engineering, teaching the fundamentals of electric circuits and providing a necessary foundation for students pursuing an electrical or telecommunications degree, or similar. The first part of the course will introduce and cover circuit variables and elements, methods and techniques for the anaylsis of DC circuits, energy storage elements, and RL and RC first-order circuits. Following this, AC circuit theory will be covered, including an introduction to sinusoidal steady-state anaylsis, phasors, AC circuit analysis techniques, and ideal transformers and voltage shaping elements. Digital circuits will be studied, covering truth tables and boolean algebra, two-level combination logic, Karnaugh maps, and binary arithmetic. During the course, students will be exposed to, and become familiar with, fundmental laboratory devices, equipment and safety.
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.
