This course introduces basic definitions, quantities and concepts associated with DC circuit analysis.

The material is mainly intended for the non-electrical engineer who requires a basic understanding of DC circuit analysis. Electrical engineers who have worked a considerable time in other areas, will also find the course useful. The course material is presented in an illustrative manner, with equations presented without extensive derivation.

The course is based on the textbook by Peter Basis “Introduction to Electronics: A Basic Approach” 1st Edition, ©2014, published by Pearson. Reprinted by permission of Pearson Education, Inc., Upper Saddle River, NJ.
