ELEC 225: ABET Course Objectives and Outcomes

ABET program outcomes that we must meet

Course objectives:

Students finishing ELEC 225 will understand fundamental circuit analysis techniques, including sinusoidal steady-state methods. Students will be prepared to take ELEC 226 in the next semester, which will include time-domain circuit analysis, Laplace transform methods, and frequency analysis of circuits and signals using Fourier series and transforms.

To achieve the objectives for ELEC 225, we work toward the following course outcomes.

Course outcomes:

At the conclusion of ELEC 225, students will be able to

  1. use fundamental building blocks such as parallel/series resistors, voltage dividers, and bridge circuits to analyze and design circuits.

  2. solve linear, simultaneous equations to analyze voltages and currents in DC and AC (phasor) circuits.

  3. use phasors and impedances to analyze the frequency response of a circuit.

  4. determine the average power dissipated in a circuit.

  5. analyze a circuit with three-phase voltages.

  6. analyze op amp circuits with negative feedback and positive feedback, using ideal as well as more realistic models for the op amp.

  7. design op amp circuits to achieve specified functionality.

  8. use PSpice software as a tool for circuit analysis.

  9. design and construct appropriate lab setups to test theoretical predictions obtained by circuit analysis.

  10. design and implement a procedure to determine the electrical characteristics of an unknown circuit element.

  11. write lab reports that are clear, well-organized, and sufficiently detailed to allow replication of the experiments.
