Circuits Tutorial ELEX 0374

Electrical and Computer Engineering Course

International Fees

International fees are typically three times the amount of domestic fees. Exact cost will be calculated upon completion of registration.

Course details

This is a refresher course in circuit theory, consisting of tutorials and examinations to prepare candidates for the Engineering National Examination 16-Elec-A1 Circuits. The course covers lumped parameter models of circuit components, nodal and mesh analysis of linear, passive circuits and equivalent networks, steady state analysis of lumped parameter, time-invariant circuits, and differential equation formulations (including sinusoidal inputs, frequency response, impulse response, and transfer functions). Laplace transform analysis, circuit transient response, and two-port circuit models and analysis are also covered.


  • No prerequisites are required for this course.
