ELEC 105: ABET Course Objectives and Outcomes

ABET program outcomes that we must meet

Course objectives:

Provide an introduction to the field of electrical engineering. The major areas of study are analog circuits, digital systems, electronics, and electric power and machines.

To achieve the objectives for ELEC 105, we work toward the following course outcomes.

Course outcomes:

At the conclusion of ELEC 105,

  1. I am proficient with electrical instruments such as voltmeters, power supplies, function generators, and oscilloscopes.

  2. I am familiar with electrical devices such as breadboards, resistors, capacitors, inductors, thermistors, op amps, etc.

  3. I can apply fundamental electrical engineering principles such as Ohm's law, Kirchhoff's laws, and nodal analysis to solve simple circuit problems.

  4. I can calculate the power dissipated or supplied by an electrical component given its voltage and current.

  5. I can estimate the charging and discharging times of simple RC and RL circuits (i.e., time constants).

  6. I can identify the frequency, amplitude, and phase of a sinusoidal voltage or current.

  7. I can calculate the impedance of a simple circuit consisting of resistors, inductors, and/or capacitors.

  8. I am familiar with the properties and applications of simple filters consisting of RC and RL components.

  9. I have a basic understanding of op-amps and their applications.

  10. I can construct simple digital circuits using timers, counters, and displays.
