Course Description: ​This progressive, hands-on course will cover the fundamentals
of electronics, including direct current (DC), alternating current (AC), and
semiconductors. As we progress though the course we'll build and analyze a variable DC power supply, then build an audio amplifier.

Instructor: Corey Koval ([masked])

Required Materials:
Notebook
Pen/Pencils
Scientific Calculator
