The course has been designed to introduce fundamental principles of circuit theory commonly used in engineering research and science applications. Techniques and principles of electrical circuit analysis including basic concepts such as voltage, current, resistance, impedance, Ohm\'s and Kirchoff\'s law; basic electric circuit analysis techniques, Thevenin\'s theorem, Norton\'s theorem, resistive circuits, transient and steadystate responses of RLC circuits; First and second order RLC circuits. 
COURSE OBJECTIVE 
DTo develop problem solving skills and understanding of circuit theory through the application of techniques and principles of electrical circuit analysis to common circuit problems. Course goals are:
1. To develop an understanding of the fundamental laws and elements of electric circuits.
2. To learn the energy properties of electric elements and the techniques to measure voltage and current.
3. To be able to analyse the electrical circuits and learn the time domain analysis methods
