Challenges in teaching electrical circuit analysis to millennials

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Electrical Circuit Theory is a mandatory course on Electro-technical Engineering Degrees. Although circuit theory basic concepts have long been established, several new challenges have surged on the last two decades, arising from the need of motivating students from the 21 st century, as well as preparing them for more advanced courses in new areas such as RF and nano-electronics. This paper addresses the use of e-learning techniques as a way of motivating students for apprehending circuit theory concepts and helping them build-up their circuit analysis intuitive skills.
