EET 090 - Introduction to Electricity

This course provides a general overview of topics covered in the Electrical Engineering Technology curriculum.  Basic circuit theories are introduced and used to describe the operation of more complex systems.  Power generation and distribution, communication systems and networking, robotics and automation, and consumer electronics are some of the topics used to illustrate application of these basic concepts.  Laboratory exercises and demonstrations will be integrated with the lectures to give students experience in taking basic electrical measurements and recording those measurements for a technical report.  Computers will be used for recording data and for researching the topics listed above.
