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.
