**ELEC 226: ABET Course Objectives and Outcomes **

**Course objectives:**

Students finishing ELEC 226 will
understand fundamental circuit analysis techniques, including
transient, *s*-domain, and sinusoidal steady-state methods.
Students will be prepared for junior-level courses in electronics
(ELEC 350) and signals and linear systems (ELEC 320).
To achieve the objectives for ELEC 226, we work toward the following
course outcomes.

**Course outcomes:**

At the conclusion of ELEC 226, students will be able to
- determine the average, reactive, and apparent power
dissipated in a sinusoidal steady-state circuit.

(a)
- analyze circuits containing linear and ideal transformers.

(a)
- analyze the natural and step response
of RC, RL, and RLC circuits using differential equations.

(a)
- analyze circuits using Laplace transforms.

(a)
- analyze frequency-selective filters using
transfer functions and Bode plots.

(a)
- analyze periodic signals using Fourier series.

(a)
- analyze two-port networks using
*z* parameters.

(a)
- use PSpice software as a tool for circuit analysis.

(k,l)
- design and construct appropriate lab setups to test
theoretical predictions obtained by circuit analysis.

(a,b,d,e,g,k)
- maintain a lab notebook that is clear, well-organized, and
sufficiently detailed to allow replication of the experiments.
