Course Objectives and their relation to the
program
Educational Objectives:
This is
a
required course for electrical engineering, computer engineering and communications
engineering majors.
Circuit
s
’
lab is considered one of the essential laboratories, because it’s the lab
where the students learn about sim
ple circuits, active and passive elements practically.
The goal of the
course is to introduce students to the basic
Concepts of DC circuits, Nodal analysis,
Nodal Analysis,
Superposition Theorem, and Maximum Power Transfer.
Moreover, the students will
unde
rstand how instruments in the lab work, such as The CRO, and Function Generator.
Students will also introduced to the RLC combination circuits, and understand the role of
Resistors, Capacitors and Inductors in electrical circuits.
