ECE 211 - Elements of Electrical Engineering I

Credits 3
Lecture / 3 hours per week
Requirements: Prequisite: MTH 154 or 152
Introduces the non-ECE major to some of the basic concepts in Electrical Engineering. The laws of circuit theory and their applications in the analysis of both DC and AC circuits consisting of passive components (resistors, capacitors, and inductors) are introduced. The concepts of power, impedance, reactance, complex power, phasors, and frequency response are discussed. Semiconductor devices (diodes and transistors) are introduced, analyzed, and applied in basic circuits. Use of available computer software to simulate and evaluate circuit performance is required.
