Course Outline (Summer 2020)

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.
