Prerequisites Electrical Circuits I ELEE 2320 with a grade of C or better, Credit for
or enrollment in ELEE 2321.

Grade Typical Grade weighting:

Homework 5%,
Attendance 5%
Midterms I, II, III 40%
Quizzes 20%
Lab 10%
Final Exam 20%

Projects Homework and Short Quizzes:

Homework and Projects must be turned in when due (by 5 pm); late
homework and projects are not accepted. In general, we will have a
number of short quizzes (5-10 minutes) covering previous meeting's
material. There are no makeups for a missed quiz. Although makeups are
discouraged, it is possible to makeup a major exam due to sickness, but
only one makeup is allowed per semester.

Grading A(>90%), B(80 - 89%), C(70 -79%), D(60 - 69%), F(<60%)


Common to All Engineering Programs
1. able to use knowledge of mathematics, basic sciences and engineering to analyze
(identify, formulate, and solve) problems in electrical engineering.

3. able to design electrical devices, systems or processes that meet given specifications.

Specific to Electrical Engineering

(A5) knowledge of basic linear algebra and discrete mathematics;

(A6) an ability to apply the above technique to engineering problems.

(B3) familiarity with analog electronics, including knowledge of basic discrete and
integrated circuits for rectification, amplification, filtering, switching, and signal
At the end of the semester, it is expected that students should be able to:
1) understand the use of diode, BJT or FET transistor, including analysis of circuits
containing single stage amplifier
2) perform DC analysis of any diode, BJT or FET transistor circuit, and identify the
operating region for each device,
(3) understand the difference between DC and small signal analysis
(4) draw small signal models and use them to analyze the performance of single transistor

Instructor Evaluation will be done at the end of the semester using the standard UTPA
evaluation procedures.
