ELEC 120 - Direct and Alternating Current Circuits

Credit Hours: 4

Students will be introduced to basic DC and AC circuits, including the characteristics of passive devices such as resistors, capacitors and inductors. Students will apply basic circuit laws (Ohm's Law, Kirchhoff's Current Law, Kirchhoff's Voltage Law) and basic circuit analysis techniques to the solution of a range of series, parallel and series-parallel circuits. Students will be introduced to basic concepts of frequency response and filters. Students will learn to build and troubleshoot circuits and measure circuit parameters using a digital multimeter and oscilloscope. 

Additional Course Fees: $90
