ECET 1101 Circuits I

Prerequisites: ECET 1012, ENGL 1101, MATH 2253 or concurrently

3-3-4

This course introduces basic electrical quantities. Techniques for analyzing resistive networks are heavily emphasized. In addition, the physical mechanisms underlying capacitance and inductance are examined along with analysis of transient responses in circuits containing resistors and capacitors or resistors and inductors. The course concludes with a treatment of dependent sources. Laboratory exercises reinforce theoretical concepts presented in the class and provide various opportunities to become familiar with standard instrumentation in electrical engineering technology.
