Want to learn about circuits and electronics? Wondering how the electronics behind sensors and actuators works, or how to make computers run faster, or your mobile phone battery last longer? This series of Circuits and Electronics courses taught by edX CEO and MIT Professor Anant Agarwal and colleagues is for you.

These online Circuits & Electronics courses are taken by all Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) majors from Massachusetts Institute of Technology - MITx.

Topics covered include: circuit abstraction, circuit elements such as resistors and sources, signals, and networks; circuit design and circuit analysis methods; digital abstraction, digital logic, and basic digital design; electronic devices including MOSFETs, digital switches, amplifiers; Energy storage elements like capacitors and inductors; dynamics of first-order and second-order networks and circuit speed; design in the time and frequency domains; op-amps, filters, and analog and digital circuits, signal processing, and applications. Design and lab exercises are also significant components of the XSeries program.

What you will learn

  • How to design and analyze circuits using both intuition and mathematical analysis
  • How to construct simple digital circuits and improve their speed
  • How to construct and analyze filters and their frequency response using capacitors and inductors
  • Design circuits applications using MOS transistors and operational amplifiers
  • How to measure circuit variables using tools such as virtual oscilloscopes, virtual multimeters, virtual frequency analyzers, and virtual signal generators
  • Compare the measurements of the circuit variables with the behavior predicted by mathematical models and explain the discrepancies
