ELTC Courses

ELTC 102: DC Electronics
Prerequisite: Concurrent enrollment in MATH 109 or TMAT 103 is suggested. DC Electronics deals with the descriptive and analytical relationship between voltage, current, resistance, power, and energy in series, parallel and series/parallel DC circuits. Ohm’s law, Kirchhoff’s laws, and network theorems will be applied to DC circuits. Laboratory experiences complement the theories studied and allow student to use test instrument and measuring techniques. 3 HRS

ELTC 103: AC Electronics
Prerequisite: ELTC 102 with a grade of C or better or instructor permission. AC Electronics is a study of alternating current and its uses. Course topics include magnetism, alternating voltage and current, inductance, capacitance, time constants, resonance, and electronic devices. Laboratory experiences complement the theories studied and allow students to use test instruments and measuring techniques. 3 HRS
