ESE 123 Syllabus for Fall 2011 Objectives: ESE123 is an introductory course intended to introduce students to basic electrical engineering concepts, equipment usage, and laboratory procedures. Our primary interest will be in developing familiarity with the basic tools of the working engineer: test equipment, simulation software, and basic prototyping techniques. You still have another three years to fill in the details. We will not cover topics in great mathematical depth, but we will cover a vast breadth of material. You will get to experience the thrill and challenge of building a working circuit, as well as the despair of report writing. We will discuss engineering careers, and we will try to answer the most important question of the course: will you enjoy an engineering career? There is no text for the class, but you will be required to buy a parts kit for our laboratory project. The price for the kit depends on the number of students in the class, and will be around $50. Topics: The course will be presented in three main sections as outlined below. Within each section multiple sub topics will be explored: Use of laboratory equipment and basic circuit theory o Electrical units (volt, amp, ohm, watt, coulomb, hertz) o Conductors, insulators, and semiconductors
