EEE100: Electronics Instruments and Measurement

Understand and test your electronics with state of the art measurement equipment available at TechShop.

In this class, you will learn how to competently use a digital oscilloscope to probe and troubleshoot circuits. You will learn how to use high resolution digital multimeters to measure things like AC and DC voltages and currents, resistance, capacitance and other critical circuit parameters. You will also learn how to set up and use DC power supplies with current limiting capability. Finally, you will use an advanced function generator and learn how to generate sine waves, square waves at varying frequencies and voltages.

Master these tools and make all of your electronics projects work!

EEE101: Electronics and Soldering Fundamentals


Welcome to Basic Electronics! This course is designed as a primer on the field of electronic circuits.

You will be introduced to the fundamental concepts of electrical engineering, including both signal flow and basic circuit analysis. After an introduction to breadboards, and you will then experiment with simple components and build several simple circuits. Finally, you will learn the basics of soldering and assemble a permanent first prototype of your circuit

TechShop Electronics and Electrical Engineering (EEE) curriculum is designed to the teach the fundamentals of modern low-power electronics. This course is the first step in that process. After mastering this course, there are two paths you can take, either separately or concurrently:

  • Hardware Electrical Engineering: Building and understanding electrical devices

  • Microcontrollers: Using tiny computers to interact with your environment
TechShop also offers several supplemental courses for a more well-rounded overview of the field, and for those who want more exposure to software/hardware interaction.

EEE206: Circuit Design with EAGLE

Firmly situated in the Information Age, you are surrounded by technology. Whether it be your cell phone in your pocket or the thermostat in your house, electronic devices will almost universally contain a printed circuit board (PCB) of some kind, which allows for the interconnection of individual components.

Enter into the world of electronic design automation (EDA) with this course, and learn how to harness the tools necessary to design your own custom PCB.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of EEE101: Basic Electronics prior to taking this class
