Course Outline
Electric
circuits represent the foundation of electrical engineering studies and
practices. All electrical systems can be modeled using the electric circuits
approach. Therefore, learning how to build and analyze electric circuits constitute
a milestone in building engineering career. This course will provide the
students with strong understanding of electric circuits with emphasis on the
techniques for analysing electric circuits in steady state and in transient
state as well.
