Electrical Engineering Technology (EET)

EET 118 Electrical Circuits Laboratory (1) Use of basic electrical instruments to measure AC and DC voltage, current, power, resistance, and lab reporting.

EET 118 Electrical Circuits Laboratory II (1)

Electrical Circuits Laboratory is typically taken concurrently with EET 114. The course is a 1 credit course that meets for one 2-hour session each week. Exercises in the lab guide are coordinated with materials being covered in the EET 114 course. All lab exercises involve hands-on work with equipment, and many of the labs are supported by computer activities that help the student collect and interpret data. The computer exercises are coordinated with the lab guide materials. Students are required to submit formal, written lab reports for many of the exercises.

Material covered in the EET 118 lab include exercises in graphical circuit solutions, charging and discharging characteristics of capacitors, reactance and impedance measurements in AC circuits, and circuit resonance. The EET 118 lab is the first lab in which students get significant exposure to the oscilloscope, function generator, and other more sophisticated laboratory equipment.
