ENS 342C Course Website: http://courses.utexas.edu/ Prerequisites: Must have credit for or be currently enrolled in M 408C or K. Required Text: Fundamentals of Electric Circuits, Fourth Edition by Alexander & Sadiku. Course Description The purpose of this course is to provide an introduction to electrical and computer engineering (ECE) early in your time at the University of Texas at Austin. During the semester you will develop a better understanding of the various sub fields of electrical and computer engineering, the different roles an ECE graduate may play in the work force, and an appreciation and enthusiasm for the courses you will have the opportunity to take as sophomores, juniors and seniors. This course will also help you develop the skills necessary for your future success as engineers: the ability to assimilate new information, apply that information to problems, and draw connections between the various bodies of knowledge. This course is designed to assist you in developing these important skills. It is my goal to help you see the importance and relevance of your basic science, mathematics, and liberal arts courses to your future as a practicing engineer. Course Objectives and Learner Outcomes EE 302 is broken into two main components. The first component is a survey of important aspects for the Professional Engineer. In this course, you will cover each of the following topics: Different focus areas in electrical and computer engineering Problem solving and the Engineering Design Process Ethical behavior of engineers Responsibilities of the engineer to society Intellectual property. These topics are covered primarily by the Explore Engineering Project that you will complete throughout the semester. The second component focuses on the analysis of DC linear circuits. In this course, you will cover each of the following topics: Physics Representation of Analog Circuit Quantities Definitions of various analog circuit elements such as resistors, voltage sources, and dependent sources. Kirchhoff’s Current and Voltage Laws Advanced circuit analysis techniques such as node voltage and mesh current analysis Development of Thévenin and Norton equivalent circuits for analyzing circuits Creating and using models for advanced electronic devices including diodes, transistors, and op-amps. You will also have weekly lab assignments designed to reinforce your knowledge of these topics and are an integral
