Course Title: Fund. of Electrical Engineering I Course Number: ENGR 322 Semester: Fall 2019 Schedule: Thursday 6:30-9:45 Room: Hayward H217 Credits: 3 credits Course type: Lecture, 3-0-3 Prerequisite: PHYS-203, PHYS-203L Required text: Real Analog - Circuits I, Digilent, Inc., 2012 Required supplies: Laptop, Digilent Analog Discovery 2 Student Bundle, Other electronics as required Credit hour: A credit hour is a measure of the amount of work represented in intended learning outcomes and verified by evidence of student achievement. A credit hour is an institutionally established equivalency that reasonably approximates not less than: (1) one hour of classroom or direct faculty instruction and a minimum of two hours of out-of-class student work each week for approximately 15 weeks for one semester hour of credit of the equivalent amount of work over a different amount of time; or (2) at least an equivalent amount of work for other academic activities such as laboratory work, studio work, internships, or academic work leading to the award of credit hours. For studio and laboratory courses, the conventional suggestion is two hours of instruction and at least four hours of work outside of class each week for approximately 15 weeks represent one hour of credit. Professor: Timothy Bieniosek Office Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Office Hours: By appointment Course Description: This course explores the analysis of circuits; transient and steady state phenomena; and general analysis techniques; and the fundamentals of direct and alternating circuits, transformers rotating machinery, electrical and electronic control, and electrical energy. We will focus on a project based learning approach using the Digilent Analog Discovery 2 to demonstrate and reinforce the fundamental concepts. We will also be working on developing conceptual connections in conjunction with the Verizon DEC project. Course Relationship: ABET required course that all engineering students must take. ABET Objectives: C, I Course learning objectives: In this course, students should be able to: Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to circuit analysis Understand the fundamentals of electrical components, circuits analysis, and power utility of circuit designs Build circuits, measure voltage, current, power consumed and understand the layout of circuit design. Collaborate with other majors in the Jefferson University community Independently design and present projects to present mastery of concepts Properly document experiments and ideas Recognize the need for, and ability to engage in life-long learning. Learning outcomes assessment: Projects Projects are used to reinforce concepts. Projects will be completed in order to show mastery of the subject material. Students may work independently or in small groups on projects. Students will be responsible for documenting their contributions for all group work. Any outside information utilized is to be cited. Late projects will have 5% deducted per calendar day late. Midterm/Final Two tests will be given during the lecture hours in the semester. There will be no make-up tests unless a documented emergency situation prevents the student from taking the test. If the student knows ahead of time that he or she would miss a test, then he or she must make arrangements to take the test early. Without prior arrangements or a documented emergency, the students not taking a test will receive a zero. Homework Homework will be assigned every class and is to be completed before the start of the next class. You must turn in your own homework at the beginning of the class on the due date. Late homework problems will not be accepted unless a documented emergency prevents you from turning it in on time. Laboratory Presentation Being a successful engineer often requires making creative use of available materials and processes in order to solve a problem. Therefore, knowing the materials, processes, and human resources available is a critical part of problem solving. Students will be assigned an engineering process or machine on campus that relates to class. Students will be responsible for mastering that process or machine throughout the semester and will present their knowledge in a presentation to their classmates and other interdisciplinary peers. Attendance Attendance will be taken every time the class meets. Excessive absences (more than 3) will not be permitted. Make up work will be permitted only for emergency reasons, where proof of reason for the absence can be provided. The student is responsible for determining the topics covered during the missed classes. Class Policy Students are required to be in class on time. Attendance will be taken during the class period and absences will cause penalties. You may bring and use laptops in class to assist your learning needs.

Anyone who is a part of this community who knowingly or unknowingly breaks the rules of academic integrity as defined by the Jefferson University community commits an offense against all members of this group. In order for all to know and understand the standards that define academic integrity at Jefferson University, the following policy has been developed and ratified by students, faculty, and staff. These policies pertain equally to all courses regardless of the method of delivery. Thus, they pertain to courses delivered fully or partially online as much as to courses delivered in-person. Academic integrity is a policy about ethical behavior at Jefferson University regarding one's intentions, decisions, and actions while conducting academic work. It includes values such as avoidance of the following: cheating; plagiarism; copying; the fabrication of information; and facilitating, or denying others access to information. It expects honesty and rigor in research, course work, writing and publishing. Academic Integrity is taken seriously in this course. Any student violating the University's academic integrity policy will be subject to appropriate sanctions. The University's complete academic integrity policy is available in the 2014-15 Academic Catalog.
Academic resources, including information on citation and documentation for all written work, projects, and presentations, are also available on the Learning and Advising Center's website.
Absence policy: In accordance with University policy, students are expected to attend class every day with all relevant required course materials and work. If you are absent from class, contact your faculty as soon as possible, preferably before the next class meeting. Students remain responsible for any missed work, for work completed in class, and for work due and must arrange for that work to be delivered to the faculty on time. Serious illness, family emergencies, or other crises mean that students should contact the Dean of Students Office as soon as possible (215-951-2740). Students are responsible for all work related to this class; however, faculty may (but are not required to) make some accommodation in terms of time of delivery and/or make-up exams for major tests. Please consult with your faculty and your academic advisor to determine whether you should withdraw from the course or request an incomplete grade in the case of serious illness or crises. The University respects students' rights to observe religious holidays. Students planning to be absent from a class due to religious observance shall notify the faculty during the first week of classes, if possible. Absence from classes or examinations for religious reasons does not relieve students from responsibility for any part of the course work required during the period of absence. Professors shall work with students to ensure they have a reasonable opportunity to make up missed classes and assignments. Inclement Weather Policy To ensure the continuation of student learning in time of emergencies, including severe weather, it the policy of Jefferson University not to cancel classes. However, if on campus sessions are not possible, students are responsible for checking their university email for information from their faculty advising them of any immediate impact on the students' preparation for the next class meeting. Information regarding the collection of student work for assessment Jefferson University is committed to providing excellent and innovative educational opportunities to its students. To help us maintain quality academic offerings and to conform to institutional and professional accreditation requirements where relevant, the University and its programs regularly examine the effectiveness of the curricula, teaching, services, and programs the University provides. As Jefferson University sees appropriate, it may retain representative examples or copies of student work from all courses. This might include papers, exams, creative works, or portfolios developed and submitted in courses or to satisfy the requirements for degree programs as well as surveys, focus group information, and reflective exercises.
