EE: Principles and Applications of Electrical Engineering
Lecturer: Dr. Mohammed Morsy Farag


This course introduces fundamentals and applications of electrical engineering for non-EE students.Course objectives include:
  • Present the principles of electrical, electronic, and electromechanical engineering to an audience composed of non–electrical engineering majors.
  • Present these principles by focusing on the important results and applications and presenting the students with the most appropriate analytical and computational tools to solve a variety of practical problems.
  • Illustrate, by way of concrete, fully worked examples, a number of relevant applications of electrical engineering principles.
  • Practice modeling and simulation using SPICE CAD tools to increase understanding of the materials taught in the course
