Hands-On Introduction to Electrical Engineering Lab Skills: Course Description

The free course, 'Hands-On Introduction to Electrical Engineering Lab Skills,' is designed to familiarize students with many of the electronic components that are used to produce electronic circuits. Lectures are presented by Gim Hom, an instructor in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Each lecture has an accompanying lab that focuses on providing supplemental material and concepts to enhance the students' understanding of the course content. The initial lecture delivers a detailed review of electrical components, including resistors, capacitors, inductors and diodes. There are also lessons on the proper use of electrical equipment, including oscilloscopes, multimeters, function generators and soldering tools. Succeeding cover a variety of relevant and related topics, including LEDs, motors, voltage regulators digital to analog converters and bipolar junction transistors.

The materials that are available for this course consist of lecture notes and lab guides in a PDF format. If you are interested in taking this OpenCourseWare, visit the electrical engineering course page.
