Learning outcomes

The student clearly identifies a problem or customer need, contextualizes it, consults relevant sources, and converts it into a goal, problem statement, and electrical engineering requirements. 

The student considers various solution directions to arrive at a detailed and well-founded electrical engineered product/service/process based on the program of requirements, using appropriate design methodologies and taking into account societal interests and engineering standards.   

The student realizes and validates a (prototype of) a product/service/process based on a technical design, using the appropriate materials/techniques/instruments.


This course addresses the concepts of current, voltage, power, energy, and basic electronic components (resistors, capacitors, diodes, transistors, linear voltage regulators, and operational amplifiers).

Futher topics:

  • Mathematical modelling is taught using Ohm's law and other techniques like Kirchhoff’s laws, superposition, Thevenin's, and Norton theorems to analyze, design, and simulate circuit prototypes.
  • Ideal and non-ideal current and voltage sources (DC and AC) are addressed in connection with rectifier circuits and linear power supplies.
  • Practical measurements are made with lab equipment (such as a multimeter) to analyze circuits and write a test report.
