EIMT 121: Electrical Fundamentals

Credits 3 Class Hours3 lecture

This course introduces students to AC and DC electrical theory and practical concepts, including basic laws and formulas. This course includes how basic circuits are configured and the necessary materials required and the wiring of common electrical devices. Tools and test equipment requirements and simple wiring techniques will be covered.

Semester Offered Fall, Spring
