Coordinator: Mohammad Hayajneh
Topics Outline:
  1. Ohms Law
  2. Series, parallel, and series-parallel circuits characteristics and measurements.
  3. Concepts and techniques of DC circuit analysis.
  4. AC measurements (e.g. magnitude, phase, and instantaneous values)
  5. Basic AC principles and circuits (inductance, capacitance, and reactance)
  6. PN-Junctions, pMOS and nMOS transistors
  1. Analyze the operation of series circuits that are connected in parallel and parallel circuits that are connected in series.
  2. Solve different electric circuits for any current, voltage or power value using superposition, Thevenin and Norton theorems.
  3. Determine the impedance, voltage, and current values for any series-parallel RLC circuit.
  4. Analyze circuits that include PN-junction diodes, nMOS transistors, and pMOS transistors.
  5. Use simulation tool and real hardware for different AC/DC circuits.
  6. Develop teamwork skills.
