ECE 20007 - Electrical Engineering Fundamentals I LabLab Hours: 3 Credits: 1 Professional Attributes
Normally Offered: Each Fall, Spring, Summer
ECE 20001 [may be taken concurrently]
This course is focused on introducing students in the area of analog and digital electronics through experimental exercises. In the first part of the course students learn how to conduct a variety of measurements including voltage, current, impedance, frequency, and waveform measurements. In the second part they learn how to design and measure basic circuit elements (resistors, inductors, capacitors, diodes, and transistors) and their applications (e.g. waveform generators, amplifiers, digital logic).
Required Text(s): None.
- A lab manual will be provided for students.
Learning Outcomes:A student who successfully fulfills the course requirements will have demonstrated an ability to:
- competently select, use, and automate electronic measurement instruments. [1,6]
- design, wire, and troubleshoot electronic circuits. [1,6]
- simulate electronic circuits. [1,6]
- keep a laboratory notebook and prepare a formal laboratory report. 
- function on an interdisciplinary team that draws on diverse backgrounds. 
- design, build, and test resistor-inductor-capacitor, operational amplifier, etc. circuits to meet specifications. [1,6]
- demonstrate knowledge of laboratory safety precautions.
