MIT 110 - Engineering Circuits 1

Credits: 4
3 Lecture Hours 2 Lab Hours

Prerequisites: EET 103   or Equivalent

This course prepares students in electrical circuits analysis. Emphasis is on direct current systems. Topics include Kirchhoff’s laws, Thevinin’s theorem, Norton’s theorem, network equations, induction, capacitance and resistor-capacitor (RC) transients.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:

  1. Apply electronic workbench software to experiments in the laboratory to measure DC values and compare them with calculated values.
  2. Describe resistance and resistivity of materials used in electrical circuits.
  3. Solve multi-loop circuits by applying network theorems.
  4. Calculate the Thevinin’s voltage and resistance for the Thevinin equivalent circuit for any complex DC circuit and determine the maximum power delivered to a load.
  5. Examine the behavior of transient RC circuits for both transient and steady-state analysis.
  6. Utilize computer spreadsheets and obtain computer plots of functions.
  7. Assess back-up materials for subsequent electrical engineering courses employing DC circuit analysis in design.
