ELEC 101: ABET Course Objectives and Outcomes

ABET program outcomes that we must meet

Course objectives:

Provide an introduction to fundamental analysis and design techniques in electrical engineering. The two main topics are analog circuits containing resistors, operational amplifiers, capacitors, and inductors, and digital systems containing binary logic devices and memory devices.

To achieve the objectives for ELEC 101, we work toward the following course outcomes.

Course outcomes:
