About this home page 

This is the home page of the course EE E1201, Introduction to Electrical Engineering, as taught at Columbia University in the Spring of 2003 General course information, special announcements, homeworks, and solutions can be found here. Students are expected to periodically check the contents of this site to obtain up-to-date information about the course. All information will be made available in class as well.

General course description

This course introduces basic concepts of electrical engineering and discusses their application in real systems. The course introduces electrical variables, circuit laws, nonlinear and linear elements, ideal and real sources, transducers, operational amplifiers in simple circuits, external behavior of diodes and transistors, first order RC and RL circuits. It also addresses the digital representation of a signal, digital logic gates, and flip flops. A laboratory is an integral part of the course. Among the various interesting circuits that students will build in the lab are audio amplifiers and AM radios. The course's only prerequisite is calculus and basic high school physics.

Structure of this home page

This home page is organized into a number of different areas, according to specific subject matters. 
General Information 
General information about the course, the instructor, and the TAs, grading policy, and so on. 
The detailed course syllabus. 
Homework assignments, due dates, and solutions. 
Lab experiment schedules and section assignment information. 
This area is extremely important, as it will contain all announcements that will be made for the class throughout the semester. This includes changes in office hours, class hours, and any other information that may need to be communicated widely. All such announcements will also be posted on the electronic mailing list that has been established for the course. 
Test results, including statistics and solutions.
