ELEC 105: ABET Course Objectives and Outcomes
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
At the conclusion of ELEC 105,
- I am proficient with electrical instruments such as
voltmeters, power supplies, function generators, and oscilloscopes.
- I am familiar with electrical devices such as breadboards,
resistors, capacitors, inductors, thermistors, op amps, etc.
- I can apply fundamental electrical engineering principles such
as Ohm's law, Kirchhoff's laws, and nodal analysis to solve simple
- I can calculate the power dissipated or supplied by an
electrical component given its voltage and current.
- I can estimate the charging and discharging times of simple RC
and RL circuits (i.e., time constants).
- I can identify the frequency, amplitude, and phase of a
sinusoidal voltage or current.
- I can calculate the impedance of a simple circuit consisting
of resistors, inductors, and/or capacitors.
- I am familiar with the properties and applications of simple
filters consisting of RC and RL components.
I have a basic understanding of op-amps and their applications.
I can construct simple digital circuits using timers, counters, and displays.
