MIT’s 6.002x Circuits & Electronics free online course

Posted on Wednesday, March 7th, 2012 in skills by DP

MITx is organizing a free online Circuits and Electronics (6.002x) course. The course started 2 days ago (5th of March) and will run until June. Upon completion you’ll receive an electronic MITx certificate of accomplishment.

The course introduces engineering in the context of the lumped circuit abstraction. Topics covered include: resistive elements and networks; independent and dependent sources; switches and MOS transistors; digital abstraction; amplifiers; energy storage elements; dynamics of first- and second-order networks; design in the time and frequency domains; and analog and digital circuits and applications. Design and lab exercises are also significant components of the course.

    “In order to succeed in this course, you must have taken an AP level physics course in electricity and magnetism. You must know basic calculus and linear algebra and have some background in differential equations.”
    I just wish I had paid more attention in maths class, instead of studying the effects of impacting spit-filled tissue on the ceiling.

    this is a very good course. currently on week 5, and its getting tough.

    It is really well done. Worth my time – I’m on week 7 and just passed the midterm exam. I can usually with some effort get all the homework questions answered but the amount of stuff they teach and the level of the exam question is actual firehose material.

    the certificates are released!
