Course Objectives
:



Upon successful co
mpletion of these courses, the student will:





Learn what it means to be an Electronics Technologist.




Discover the occupations that populate today’s volatile Electronics industry.




Learn the basic principles of Electronics, Ohm’s Law and Elect
rical Calculations.




Be able to measure Current, Voltage & Resistance in dc circuits.




Be able to differentiate between Conductors, Insulators and Resistors.




Learn the properties of Series, Parallel & Series
-
Parallel Resistive Circuits.




D
evelop circuit analysis techniques in dc resistive type circuits using
Kirchhoff’s Voltage &
Current Laws; Source Conversion; Thevenin, Norton & Superposition Theorems.




Become familiar with constant voltage dc sources (Batteries and DC Power Supplies)
.




Solve problems involving dc sources connected in series or in parallel with each other.




Thoroughly understand the concept of Inductance and Capacitance, and apply circuit
analysis techniques to solve problems with Resistors, Inductors & Capacit
ors in dc
Circuits.

Standards of Performance Required

:



To receive a passing grade, students must satisfy all the following condit
ions:


(a)

Obtain at least 60% on the Total Theory mark.

(b)

Obtain at least 60% on the Total Laboratory mark.

(c)

Score at least 60% on the Total Mark, calculated as shown in the above table.



Note
:


The student will receive the same Total Mark in both t
