As I read through the curriculum for our next Continuing Education Center course, Introduction to Electronics, I thought that it might be too basic for our readers. People are going to wonder why we’re teaching such elementary courses.
But the more I went through it, the more intrigued I became. Whether you are a trained electrical engineer (like me), someone with training in a different engineering discipline, or just a technology geek, there’s something for you in these classes.
Take, for example, the starter class. Do you remember the basics of what makes up the particles of electricity? Think how much money you could win in a bar bet with this information! How switches, transistors, and vacuum tubes work? That’s so far into the back regions of my brain that it’s easier to just take this refresher course.
The course is taught by renowned expert and author Clive “Max” Maxfield, who certainly has his own unique method of teaching these principles. He has the uncanny ability to take very complex principles and break them down into smaller bites that are easy to understand.
As the course progresses through the week, Max will cover things like the analog and digital domains (and associated components), different types of silicon chips and packages, programmable logic devices like CPLDs and FPGAs, and circuit boards and systems.
I suggest you check it out; I can almost guarantee you’ll learn something and enjoy it at the same time. One big reason for that is that Max is unlike any professor you’ve ever had.
