ELEC 226: ABET Course Objectives and Outcomes

ABET program outcomes that we must meet

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

  1. determine the average, reactive, and apparent power dissipated in a sinusoidal steady-state circuit.

  2. analyze circuits containing linear and ideal transformers.

  3. analyze the natural and step response of RC, RL, and RLC circuits using differential equations.

  4. analyze circuits using Laplace transforms.

  5. analyze frequency-selective filters using transfer functions and Bode plots.

  6. analyze periodic signals using Fourier series.

  7. analyze two-port networks using z parameters.

  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. maintain a lab notebook that is clear, well-organized, and sufficiently detailed to allow replication of the experiments.
