This course covers a subset of basic electrical engineering principles. The objective of this course, and other introductory electrical engineering courses, is: to provide you with the opportunity to develop the baseline of knowledge and skills that you will need for further study of modern electrical engineering technologies and applications Please refer to the course syllabus, posted on the course web site: MyNJIT / My Courses Course textbook: Electric Circuits 9th Edition by James W. Nilsson and Susan A. Riedel Prerequisites: Physics 121; Math 112 (or equivalents) Circuits and Systems 1

In this course, we will use the following to solve problems, including assigned homework problems: LTspice IV circuit simulation software, available for free download from Linear Technologies http://www.linear.com/designtools/software/ltspice.jsp myDAQ personal laboratory (USB test instrument), available from National Instruments http://www.studica.com/myDAQ/ Students will need to use a myDAQ personal laboratory (or equivalent test equipment) to perform the experimental portions of their homework assignments. Students who elect to share a myDAQ for the purpose of performing the experimental portions of their homework assignments should endeavor to perform the experiments themselves (not as a group) I will have a myDAQ , in my office, that students may borrow during my office hours.

Circuits and Systems 1 There are many resources that you can use to obtain a variety of complementary explanations of the associated concepts and methodologies that are covered in this course: The weekly lecture sessions The weekly recitation sessions The lecture notes (posted on the course web site prior to each session) The course textbook Other textbooks (e.g. G. Rizzoni, Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering) The World Wide Web (e.g. Wikipedia, etc.) Discussions with: the course instructor (SDP) and/or the course TA… in-person during office hours, and/or via E-mail Discussions with classmates

A “critical success factor”, that will determine your success in this course (and in your other courses), is how much effort you put into thinking about these concepts and methodologies outside of the classroom (e.g. in the process of producing your homework solution sets). You should expect to spend 6-9 hours of non-class time each week (e.g. studying, and producing solutions for assigned problems in homework sets) for a 3-credit course such as ECE- 231. History has shown that engineering students who do not (for whatever reason) spend 6-9 hours of non-class time each week… for each 3-credit course they enroll in… derive very little of the knowledge and skills that they are expected to derive from those courses; and generally earn poor/failing grades in those courses Circuits and Systems 1
