Free electrical engineering courseware collections
To learn more about the design and development of electronics, telecommunications systems and electrical systems, engineering students and professionals can turn to the many electrical engineering open courseware collections available online. Schools like MIT, Paris Tech Grad School and Tokyo Tech have uploaded syllabi, reading assignments, lectures and other course material onto their websites to give electrical engineers around the world access to their top notch training resources. From electrical simulation to Maxwell's equations to microwave communications to guided wave circuit theory, students can brush up on a specific area or gain a broad understanding of the field itself. Many classes focus on signal processing, microelectronics, waves and radiation.
For an example of the various open courseware classes available online, students can refer to the list below, which includes classes like Electromagnetics and Applications, Guided Wave Circuit Theory, Power Electronics, Microelectronics, and Advanced Circuit Techniques. Students learn a combination of practical skills used in real-life jobs and industry-related theory which helps them apply new techniques to their careers or class projects. Additional topics covered in these and other electrical engineering open courseware classes include CMOS devices, mixed ASIC design, gain-controlled amplifiers, radiation, and more. Through these courses, students also gain access to project guides helpful readings, and extra study materials to help them prepare for exams or brush up on skills learned years ago.
