Fundamentals of analog and digital circuit analysis and design as applied to biological engineering instrumentation systems. Analysis and design of AC and DC circuits using Ohms and Kirchhoff's laws, the node voltage method, Thévenin and Norton's theorem, Laplace Transforms, resistance, capacitance, inductance, operational amplifiers, and frequency response, analog filter design, diode, transistors, biological signal acquisition, binary math and logical operators, digital circuit design, circuit simulation tools and techniques. Laboratory exercises supplement the topics presented in class lectures.

ECE 331, Principles of Electrical Engineering, a course which provides an excellent theoretical introduction to electrical circuits, has been required in the biological engineering curriculum for many years.  However, biological engineering students also need practical hands-on instruction in order to be adequately prepared for BAE 401, Sensors and Controls, and BAE 451, Senior Design I.  This need will be addressed in this course through the inclusion of a hands-on laboratory and practical examples based on biological engineering applications.

Student Learning Outcomes

At the conclusion of this course, all students will be able to:



  1. Demonstrate a mathematical framework to describe linear systems, and use the mathematics as a tool for analysis of analog and digital circuits.

  2. Apply the fundamentals of analog AC and DC electrical systems, basic circuit principles, Op-Amps, and waveforms.

  3. Apply the fundamentals of digital logic design, Boolean algebra, Karnaugh maps, and combinatorial circuits.


Evaluation MethodWeighting/Points for EachDetails
Homework10%Problem sets will be assigned every Wednesday and will be due at the start of class on the following Monday. Late homework will not be accepted unless the student is excused by the instructor for an absence occurring during the class period in which the homework was due. Excused absences will only occur in the event of illness, death in the family or for officially approved University activities.
Lab assignments10%Lab assignments will occur weekly during each student's assigned lab section.
Attendance5%Regular lecture attendance is expected. Attendance in labs is mandatory. If lecture absences become excessive (more than 2), written excuses will be required. Each unexcused absence will result in the student being penalized 1 percentage point on their final grade. The maximum penalty over the course of the semester is 5 percent. Students with an unexcused absence in lab will receive a grade of zero for that lab assignment.
Discussion5%One of the following assessments will be made of students’ class preparation and participation on a regular basis. The assessments will be averaged with pop quizes to determine the final participation grade.
• A+ (100%) - Outstanding participation. Student meets and exceeds all criteria for “A” participation.
• A (95%) - Student is well prepared, attentive, always responds when called upon and volunteers often with pertinent answers or questions.
• B (85%) - Student is usually well prepared, responds when called on and volunteers on occasion.
• C (75%) - Student shows evidence of being unprepared on occasion, has trouble when called on and does not volunteer often.
• D (65%) - Student is unprepared, inattentive, never volunteers, or comes to class late.
• F (0%) - Student exhibits a lack of concern for the class, sleeps in class, or disturbs the class.
Multiple exams40%Two exams will be given during the semester.
Final Exam30%The final exam will be cumulative.
Consultations were requested from BME, ECE and TE because they teach similar courses. The responses from BME and ECE are attached. TE did not respond to the consultation request.
