knowledge in high school physics, chemistry and mathematics.
An electronics kit containing tools and components is recommended, but not required.
Electronics engineering is a discipline of Electrical engineering which focuses on the design and construction of circuits that process information and control of electric power. Unlike most electronics engineering courses offered online or in universities, which are highly academic, this course uses a hands-on approach to learning, and focuses heavily on practical applications.
The purpose of this bootcamp is to teach the bare minimum in math and theory to provide a solid foundation, while focus heavily on practical design methodology, applications, and electronics know-how that is typically only learned with years of industry experience. By the end of the bootcamp, all students shall be able to design professional, industrial-grade embedded systems and electronic circuits that can process and transmit high speed signals, and control of high power circuits.
This is the first course in a multi-course bootcamp, that requires no previous knowledge besides high school math, chemistry and physics. It will build an intuitive understanding of electronic theory and provide the bare minimum knowledge to get started building very simple circuits, such as controlling LEDs, adjusting brightness of LEDs, operating relays, mixing colors, and a few others.
Who this course is for:
- Hobbyists and makers interested in electronics design, or undergraduate students currently studying electrical, computer, mechatronics, or embedded systems engineering
What you’ll learn
Understand the core concepts of electronic theory (voltage, current, resistance, energy, power in a circuit)
Read and draw electronic schematics.
Build practical circuits on a breadboard.
Use lab tools such as a multimeter to debug circuits
