However, the specific goals for this course are to teach you the basics on AC and DC circuit analysis. We will build on what you have learned in physics about inductors and capacitors, and what you are learning in match about differential equations, and will develop simple models of these components that allow electrical circuits to be designed and analyzed using some simple theoretical calculations. We will also rely heavily on computer simulation tools such as MutliSim, to handle complex circuits.

The laboratory experience will teach you how to design, prototype and fabricate simple electrical circuits. Extensive use of simulation tools will be made to debug and verify hardware performance.
