EET 100 Electric Circuits, Power, and Electronics (3)

Electric Circuits, Power, and Electronics is a course for non-major students who will be working with electronic equipment in industry.  This course starts with basic knowledge of DC and AC components and concepts used in industrial electrical work. Topics such as circuits, electromagnetism, sources, energy conversion and electrical instruments prepare students to continue with topics in electronics. Beginning with the basics of semiconductors and moving through diodes and transistors, the student is prepared to learn the concepts of rectification and amplification. These form a foundation for the completion of the course with a look at understanding the concepts and use of analog and digital circuitry found in Programmable Logic Control (PLC) systems used in industry today.
