A comprehensive course for non-electronic engineers to gain insight, practical knowledge and skills in electricity and analog electronics, essential to work in projects together with electronic engineers and to learn how to handle electronic measurement instruments. 22 evening lessons of 3 (17 - 20) or 4 hours (17 - 21 in case of a hands on session) and 3 tests.


After completion of this course the participant has gained:

· Basic knowledge of electricity and analog electronics to ease the communication with electronic engineers;

· Practical experience with electrical measurements and equipment, simple usage of an analog simulator.

Intended for

The course is intended for engineers (of technical college / university level) working in research, development and/or engineering.

After this course the following course can be attended: "Electronics for non-electronic engineers basics digital electronics (ENE-BDE)".


Module 1: Basics electricity, circuit theory (7 lessons, 1 test)

Basic circuit theory, charge, work, power, resistance, symbols, voltage, current, battery, series networks, parallel networks, Ohm, Kirchhoff, superposition, Thevenin, Norton, max power transfer, AC power calculations, attenuator networks, capacitors, inductors, transient behaviour of RC and RL networks, AC behaviour of RLC, phase, impedance, admittance, filters, resonance. Hands-on practice with measurement equipment (DMM, Scope, function generator), measurement techniques, Spice simulator and its application. Bode diagram.


Module 2: Basics analog electronics (15 lessons, 2 tests)

Semiconductor technology, diodes, bipolar junction transistors, FETs, MOS transistors, switching transistors, power output stages, ICs, feedback theory, operational amplifier and its application, sensors.
