Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering 1

Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering 1 is a textbook for beginners. Students taking an introductory electrical engineering course will benefit from its thoroughness. They will learn how to create, manipulate, transmit, and receive information electronically. These are the fundamentals. Written by an electrical engineering professor of several decades, the textbook makes these concepts clear for students to comprehend. For instance, it begins with a history of electrical engineering and explains how the field has evolved over the decades in practice and technology. This gives the reader ample context and background to keep in mind as they build upon their knowledge. Furthermore, readers will get a deeper understanding of how electrical engineering works in the real world.

In addition, Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering 1 is laid out into seven chapters: the introduction, signals and systems, analog signal processing, frequency domain, digital signal processing, information communication, and the appendix. Then, each chapter breaks up into several lessons that lead into one another. This format makes the book a useful resource for professors creating lesson plans and guiding students through the material. The textbook also provides many relevant formulas, which it explains through diagrams that illustrate their applications.
