Develop a fundamental skills for the understanding of basic concepts in circuit analysis commonly used in engineering research through analytical description of the circuit variables and application of the basic laws and methods.
At the end of this course, students will be able to:
- understand the fundamental laws and principles in circuit analysis;
- apply analytical methods for solving the DC electrical circuits;
- learn energy properties of the circuit elements and energy flows in electrical circuits;
- analyze the transient behavior and steady-state responses of RLC circuits.

Learning outcomes
  • Demonstrate a systematic and critical understanding of the theories, principles and practices of computing
  • Critically review the role of a “professional computing practitioner” with particular regard to an understanding of legal and ethical issues
  • Creatively apply contemporary theories, processes and tools in the development and evaluation of solutions to problems and product design
  • Actively participate in, reflect upon, and take responsibility for, personal learning and development, within a framework of lifelong learning and continued professional development; Present issues and solutions in appropriate form to communicate effectively with peers and clients from specialist and non-specialist backgrounds
  • Work with minimum supervision, both individually and as a part of a team, demonstrating the interpersonal, organisation and problem-solving skills supported by related attitudes necessary to undertake employment.
