Rationale of the Course

Electrical Circuit I Lab is intended to teach the basics of Electrical Engineering to undergraduates of engineering departments. The main aim is to provide hands-on experience to the students so that they are able to put theoretical concepts to practice. The manual starts off with the basic laws such as Ohm's Law and Kirchhoff's Current and Voltage Laws. The two experiments augment students' understanding of the relations of voltage and current how they are implemented in practical life. Computer simulation is also stressed upon as it is a key analysis tool of engineering design.

MATLAB/MULTI-Sim is used for simulation of electric circuits and is a standard tool at numerous universities and industries of the world. The simulated parameters are then verified through actual experiment. Use of oscilloscopes is also stressed as analysis tool. The important theorems of Thevenin and Norton are also provided along with the frequency domain analysis of circuits. They greatly simplify the complex electrical networks for analysis purposes. At the end, the students should be able to grasp the concepts thoroughly of the electric circuits and able to apply it further in their field of study.

Rationale of the Course 

Electromagnetics (EM) is the subject having to do with electromagnetic fields. An electromagnetic field is made up of interdependent electric and magnetic fields, which is the case when the fields are varying with time, that is, they are dynamic. An electric field is a force field that acts upon material bodies by virtue of their property of charge, just as a gravitational field is a force field that acts upon them by virtue of their property of mass. A magnetic field is a force field that acts upon charges in motion. 

EM is all around us. In simple terms, every time we turn a power switch on, every time we press a key on our computer keyboard, or every time we perform a similar action involving an everyday electrical device, EM comes into play. It is the foundation for the technologies of electrical and computer engineering, spanning the entire electromagnetic spectrum, from dc to light, from the electrically and magnetically based (elctromechanics) technologies to the electronics technologies to the photonics technologies. As such, in the context of engineering education, it is fundamental to the study of electrical and electronic engineering.

 Rationale of the Course: 

Chemistry is the study of materials and substances, and the transformations they undergo through interactions and the transfer of energy. Chemistry develops students' understanding of the key chemical concepts and models of structure, bonding, and chemical change, including the role of chemical, electrical and thermal energy. Students learn how models of structure and bonding enable chemists to predict properties and reactions and to adapt these for particular purposes. Students design and conduct qualitative and quantitative investigations both individually and collaboratively. They investigate questions and hypotheses, manipulate variables, analyze data, evaluate claims, solve problems and develop and communicate evidence-based arguments and models. The study of chemistry provides a foundation for undertaking investigations in a wide range of scientific fields and often provides the unifying link across interdisciplinary studies.
