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
Structure of this home page
This home page is organized into a number of different areas, according
to specific subject matters.
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
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.
