ELC-105 Technical DC Circuit Analysis

90 hours Lecture, 90 hours Lab


Students will learn the full range of DC theory including atomic structure, current flow, resistance, Ohm's Law, series circuits, parallel circuits, series-parallel circuits, Kirchhoff's Laws, advanced circuit theorems, WYE and delta networks, and DC circuit analysis. Extensive laboratory exercises are used to reinforce and prove theoretical studies, and to provide 'hands-on' experience in the care and use of basic test equipment. The use of simulation software will also allow students to compare and learn the operation of basic circuits.

ELC-106 Technical AC Circuit Analysis

90 hours Lecture, 90 hours Lab


This course is a continuation of ELC 105, the study of basic electronics circuits. Students will continue with basic topics including sine waves and phasor algebra, inductive circuits, capacitive circuits, resonance, passive filters, integrators and differentiators, advanced circuit analysis, along with polyphase power generation and distribution. Laboratory experiments, including simulation software, are extensively used which reinforces theoretical studies and provides a more 'hands-on' experience in the proper use of advanced laboratory equipment, such as the oscilloscope, function generator, and frequency counter

ELC-110 Digital Electronics Analysis

90 hours Lecture, 90 hours Lab


Students will gain a theoretical and practical introduction to digital electronic techniques. Topics include number systems and codes; logic elements; Boolean algebra, De Morgan's theorem and Karnaugh maps; clocks, latches and flip-flops; D/A and A/D conversions; and digital memory techniques. In the lab, students will use Multisum to verify the operation of digital circuits, which they will build, thus gaining a better understanding of the theoretical principles introduced. All students are required to demonstrate their mastery of these topics by designing and constructing a digital project.

ELC-120 Solid State Devices

90 hours Lecture, 90 hours Lab


Students will be introduced to basic semiconductor theory and active solid state devices and will learn about PN junctions and diode theory, bipolar junction transistors, JFETs and MOSFET transistor operation and circuit configurations. DC bias methods, along with small signal AC operation for each device, are thoroughly investigated, leading to power amplifiers and multi-stage amplifiers. Students will use the electronics lab facilities to investigate device characteristics, reinforce theoretical instruction, demonstrate applications, and gain "hands-on" experience working with linear solid state devices.
