Teaching/learning activities in the lab

The Electrical Engineering Circuit and Computer Laboratory facilities are utilized in several School of Engineering and Technology courses including but not limited to EGR 120: Introduction to Engineering, EGR 190: Digital Circuits and IET 291: Applied Circuits. These courses have a combined enrollment of nearly 200 students per year.
Lab activities performed in these courses include:
  • Measuring DC voltage and current
  • Verifying and applying Ohm's Law
  • Constructing and measuring resistive circuits in series and parallel
  • Demonstration of relay applications
  • Measurement of AC voltage and current
  • Visualization of sinusoidal voltage on an oscilloscope
  • Measurement of reactance of inductors and capacitors
  • Using diodes and transistors
  • Building combinational and sequential digital circuits using 7400 series IC chips
