Prerequisite:PHY 213, MATH 260, MATH 270
Transfers to: UC, CSU
This course is for students who intend to pursue a major in engineering. The course covers topics in electrical engineering, including Ohm's law, dependent and independent sources, Kirchhoff's laws, mesh-current and nodal-voltage methods, Thévenin and Norton equivalent circuits, linear superposition, DC/AC transient and steady-state responses of linear RLC circuits, phasors, AC power calculations, and three-phase circuits. Theoretical analysis of modern, semiconducting devices such as diodes, operational amplifiers (op-amps), metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs), and bipolar junction transistors (BJTs) will also be explored in the context of non-linear circuits, digital circuits capable of Boolean logic, and the integration of semiconducting circuit elements into linear, RLC circuits with applications.
