Introduction to engineering: A Starter's guide with hands-on analog multimedia explorations

Lina Karam, Naji Mounsef

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This lecture provides a hands-on glimpse of the field of electrical engineering. The introduced applications utilize the NI ELVIS hardware and software platform to explore concepts such as circuits, power, analog sensing, and introductory analog signal processing such as signal generation, analog filtering, and audio and music processing. These principals and technologies are introduced in a very practical way and are fundamental to many of the electronic devices we use today. Some examples include photodetection, analog signal (audio, light, temperature) level meter, and analog music equalizer.
