Electricity Distribution (edX)

This course is designed like a field trip. Let’s travel together around the world, visiting solar farms, substations, and transformer rooms! Learn how to identify major components in electrical substations, learn about 3-phase electricity, and all about the ins and outs of electrical grids. We cover generation, transmission, and [...]

AC and Switching Circuits (edX)

In this course, you will learn all about circuits with alternating current (AC). The course shows how to design and analyse AC circuits, and concepts like phasors and power factor are explained. We also cover transformers, fuses, relays, and the use of transistors as switches. The course is the [...]

Circuits for Beginners (edX)

This course introduces DC (direct current) circuits and is typically the first course an undergraduate student in electrical engineering would take. We learn about voltage, current, and power, while building and analyzing progressively more complex circuits.

Semiconductors for Beginners (edX)

The primary goal of the course is to enable the student to understand what semiconductors are, and why they are important to the electronics industry. Students will first learn and understand why some materials are insulators and others are conductors, and will learn how these properties can be modified. [...]
