NOTE: I DO NOT USE WEBCT! NOT AT ALL! NOT EVER! TO GET INFORMATION
ABOUT EE 2310 YOU MUST GO TO THE WEBSITE LISTED ABOVE.
Course Pre-requisite: None. Technical information required in each laboratory exercise is
included in the exercise outline in the lab manual.
Course Description:This course introduces students to experimental practices in an electrical

circuit laboratory. Students will learn to use common laboratory instruments, including the power
supply, multimeter, oscilloscope, frequency counter, and signal generator. Experiments cover
fundamentals of circuit theory, including passive circuit elements, DC and AC circuits, and
measurement techniques. Students will learn to communicate research results by writing a
laboratory report.Laboratory sessions begin the week of Tuesday, September 1, at your usual

class time.
Student Learning Objectives/Outcomes: By the end of EE 1102, the student should have a
firm basic knowledge of:
a. Use of common electronic
instruments
b. How to work with a lab partner

c. Basic AC and DC circuit theory
d. How to do laboratory experiments
e. How to write a lab technical report

Required Textbooks and Materials:The EE 1102 Lab Manual is available at the UTD
bookstore. Also purchase the two required electronics parts kits and a 9-volt battery as well (kits
and battery should be packaged together).

EE 1102 Laboratory Class Schedule, Fall, 2009
Lab Routine: Note \u2013 Make sure that you arrive in class promptly. The teaching assistant (TA) is
authorized to take up to 10 points off your lab grade if you are late.
1.Make sure that you come to the first (overview) class. Points will be deducted from your first
lab grade if you miss this class!
2. Please read the experimental description before coming to class and become familiar with the

procedure before the lab starts.
3. Remember to turn in your lab report for the previous week at the start of class.
4. You must do the worksheets for each lab exercise before class. Worksheets are due at the

beginning of class, and will not be accepted after class starts. Worksheets count 10 points of the
100 points of each lab experiment grade. You will receive the full 10-point credit
, even if there
are errors in your work, so long as you have made a good-faith effort to complete the

worksheet.
5. The TA or instructor will give a brief lecture, discussing the lab theory and the procedure.
6. When you are told to proceed, you and your partner may do so at your own pace.
7. Refer to the TA when you have questions about the procedure or theory.
8. When you are finished, have the TA check your work, clean up your work area, and you may

leave.

Course & Instructor Policies:
Most lab exercises will be completed in about 2 to 2 \u00bd hours, although some sessions may take
the entire 3-hour period. Laboratory sessions start the week of September 1.

Students will work in two-person teams. Please have your teams arranged when you report for
the first experiment (week of Sept. 8). If you do not have a teammate, tell the TA or instructor at
the beginning of that class.

Exams:There are no exams in this laboratory course.
Homework:

Lab reports are always due the next session after the lab is completed. Late lab reports are NOT accepted. If a student has an extraordinary reason for being unable to submit a lab report on time, the report may be accepted late if the student arranges the date with the TA in advance, or with appropriate documentation of the problem. Lab reports will be returned about a week after they are turned in.

Class attendance:

Lab class attendance is often taken when lab reports are turned in. You cannot use your lab
partner\u2019s data to do your report \u2013 you must attend the lab yourself to get credit for your report!
Points can be deducted for tardiness by your TA.

Lab citizenship, etc.:
Proper lab deportment for engineering students is taken for granted. When you enter the lab,
speak quietly if you are carrying on a conversation.MAKE SURE YOU TURN OFF YOUR
CELL PHONE.Do not listen in mp3 players, IPODs, etc., in class. Students found playing
computer games in lab will be criticized, ridiculed, and possible have points taken off their next
report grade!
Field Trip Policies and Off-campus Instruction and Course Activities: No off-campus activities in
this course.
Student Conduct & Discipline:

The University of Texas System and The University of Texas at Dallas have rules and regulations for the
orderly and efficient conduct of their business. It is the responsibility of each student and each student
organization to be knowledgeable about the rules and regulations which govern student conduct and
activities. General information on student conduct and discipline is contained in the UTD publication, A to

Z Guide, which is provided to all registered students each academic year.
The University of Texas at Dallas administers student discipline within the procedures of recognized and
established due process. Procedures are defined and described in the Rules and Regulations, Board of
Regents, The University of Texas System, Part 1, Chapter VI, Section 3, and in Title V, Rules on Student
