Electrical Engineering program description.

ECE1813Electricity and Magnetism4 ch (3C 1T 3L*)

An introduction to the fundamentals of electricity and magnetism and applications. Covers concepts of charge, electric fields, voltage, current, power, energy, magnetic fields and the link between electricity and magnetism for the creation of machines. Includes resistors, resistance, Ohm's law, Kirchoff's voltage and current laws, some electrical properties of materials. Electric sources, simple series, paralell, and series-paralell DC circuits and mesh analysis are examined. Energy conversion and simple electric machines are examined. The behaviour and use of common sensors and transducers are discussed.

Prerequisite: Two years of high school physics (or equivalent).

Co-requisite: MATH 1003.
