Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This introductory subject assumes no prior knowledge of electrical or electronics engineering. The subject provides an overall introduction to electrical engineering. The subject then consists of two components: DC and AC Circuit Analysis. The first component introduces elementary circuit analysis techniques and applies them to DC circuits. The second component extends these analysis techniques and applies them to AC Circuits. At the end of the subject, students will be familiar with: circuit theory, sinusoidal and non-sinusoidal waveforms, phasors, impedance, network theorems, measurement systems, instruments and DC/AC applications. Engineers Australia stage 1 competencies covered in this subject are: 1.1, 1.2, 2.1 and 3.2 (see intended learning outcomes for details).
