Description: ES 332 (Electrical Engineering) provides
fundamental topics of electrical engineering to non-majors.
Topics include circuits (DC and AC analysis, operational amplifiers and
power) and digital systems (binary numbers, logic and information processing).
The course will cover material taken from chapters 1-5, 11-15 of the text.
Grading:
- Homework: 15%
