Credits: 3
Terms Offered: Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer
Prerequisites: (MTH 251 or MTH 251H) and (MTH 252 or MTH 252H)
Courses that require this as a prerequisite: ENGR 202, ECE 272
Structure: Two 50-minute lectures and one 2-hour recitation per week
Instructors: M. Shuman and R. Traylor
Course Content:
• Basic circuit concepts and laws
• Methods of analysis (e.g., nodal, mesh)
• Circuit theorems
• Operational amplifiers
• Capacitors and inductors
• First-Order circuits
Measurable Student Learning Outcomes:
At the completion of the course, students will be able to…
1. State and utilize the current-voltage relationships of resistors, capacitors, inductors, and
independent and dependent current and voltage sources in solving dc circuits and calculating
power and energy (ABET outcomes: A, e, m)
2. State Ohm’s and Kirchoff’s laws, and apply these to voltage and current division,
series/parallel and Wye-Delta transformations, mesh analysis, and nodal analysis for resistive
circuits (ABET outcomes: A, e, m)
3. State Superposition, Thevenin’s and Norton’s theorems, and apply these for the analysis of
dc circuits (ABET outcomes: A, e, m)
4. Analyze circuits made up of ideal opamps and resistors (ABET outcomes: A, e, m)
5. Analyze first-order circuits, which contain resistors, capacitors, or inductors (ABET
outcomes: A, e, m)
Learning Resources:
• Fundamentals of Electric Circuits, 5th Edition, C. K. Alexander and M. N. O. Sadiku,
McGraw-Hill, 2013 (required)
Students with Disabilities:
Accommodations are collaborative efforts between students, faculty and Services for Students
with Disabilities (SSD). Students with accommodations approved through SSD are responsible
for contacting the faculty member in charge of the course prior to or during the first week of the
term to discuss accommodations. Students who believe they are eligible for accommodations but
who have not yet obtained approval through SSD should contact SSD immediately at 737-4098.
