Overview

For undergraduate introductory or survey courses in electrical engineering

A clear introduction to electrical engineering fundamentals

Electrical Engineering: Principles and Applications, 6e helps students learn electrical-engineering fundamentals with minimal frustration. Its goals are to present basic concepts in a general setting, to show students how the principles of electrical engineering apply to specific problems in their own fields, and to enhance the overall learning process. Circuit analysis, digital systems, electronics, and electromechanics are covered. A wide variety of pedagogical features stimulate student interest and engender awareness of the material’s relevance to their chosen profession.

NEW: This edition is now available with MasteringEngineering, an innovative online program created to emulate the instructor’s office—hour environment, guiding students through engineering concepts from Electrical Engineering with self-paced individualized coaching.

Note: If you are purchasing the standalone text or electronic version, MasteringEngineering does not come automatically packaged with the text. To purchase MasteringEngineering, please visit: masteringengineering.com or you can purchase a package of the physical text + MasteringEngineering by searching the Pearson Higher Education website. Mastering is not a self-paced technology and should only be purchased when required by an instructor.
