Fundamentals of Electricity & Electronics - ELTEC 208

multimeterAn overview of electrical and electronic phenomena as applied to common consumer and industrial devices. The course examines the physical nature and laws of electricity and magnetism and the application of the scientific method. DC and AC circuits and their characteristics are examined, predicted, and measured. Electronic test equipment and voltage sources are utilized in the construction, troubleshooting and testing of electrical and electronic circuits. The historical development and the socioeconomic aspects of the "electronic age" are also examined.
