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


This course introduces fundamentals and applications of electronic engineering for non-EE students.Course objectives include:
  • Present the principles of electronic 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 electronic engineering principles.
  • Experimental assembly and testing of basic electronic circuits to apply and assimilate the theoritical concepts taught in the course.
  • Practice modeling and simulation using SPICE CAD tools to increase understanding of the materials taught in the course.
Teaching Load (Fall 2014):
  • Lectures (2 hours), Tutorials (2 hours), Lab (2 hours)
