Course Description

Want to learn how to construct an amplifier for mobile phones? Wondering how energy storage elements like capacitors and inductors work, or how to make microchips run faster? This free circuit course taught by edX CEO and MIT Professor Anant Agarwal and colleagues is for you.

This is the second of three online Circuits and Electronics courses and is taken by all MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) majors.

Topics covered include: MOSFET large signal and small signal analysis; amplifiers; energy storage elements like capacitors and inductors; and dynamics of first-order networks and circuit speed. Design and lab exercises are also significant components of the course.

Weekly coursework includes interactive video sequences, readings from the textbook, homework, online laboratories, and optional tutorials. The course will also have a final exam.

Student Testimonials

“Brilliant course! It's definitely the best introduction to electronics in Universe! Interesting material, clean explanations, well prepared quizzes, challenging homeworks and fun labs.” - Ilya. 

“6.002x will be a classic in the field of online learning. It combines Prof. Agarwal's enthusiasm for electronics and education. The online circuit design program works very well. The material is difficult. I took the knowledge from the class and built an electronic cat feeder.” - Stan

The course content is great. Thank you edX for hosting and offering it. I love the demos, labs, the sandbox and the discussions. The guidance explanations in the discussion by all, and especially by one Grove, are very enlightening, many thanks to him. The power of simulation has been made abundantly clear to me. The flexibility of the course is invaluable given that I have a day job and can only commit the portions of time when I am tired to work through the challenging yet accessible content. The opportunity to invest through registering for verifiable certification was very motivating for the the basic and intermediate course. Many misconceptions have been cleared as a result of taking this program. Alas the misconceptions cost me some grade points on my final exams but I cannot reverse what the limited four responses of the final exam dictated even though I later figured out my errors as I worked through other problems.

The opportunity to invest through registering for verifiable certification was very motivating for the the basic and intermediate course. Many misconceptions have been cleared as a result of taking this program. Alas the misconceptions cost me some grade points on my final exams but I cannot reverse what the limited four responses of the final exam dictated even though I later figured out my errors as I worked through other problems. I wish that there would be a 'history-of-submissions' tab besides problems so that I can quickly see the earlier responses and not resubmit them when I cannot access my large sheaf of notes and scratch paper. The exam problems appear to be a notch ahead of what is taught in the course videos and given in the coursebook. The consequence is that I have ended up reading and researching far and above what is required to solve many problems. For example I learnt more about the shunt peaked amplifier, Laplace Transforms, buck and boost inverters, reading component datasheets, the often-obfuscated R_DS_ON, the many-legged integrated circuit devices, diode protection in inductive circuits, among others practical matters than I knew before. May be that is a blessing in disguise as I am much more exposed than I could have if everything was given on a silver platter. I also have a great collection of materials from researching widely. Still for the sake of validity and reliability in testing it is good to test what has been taught and to let the course participants preview some of what they may face. The inability to directly interface with individual staffs and coursemates is very frustrating. Can that be remedied? I look forward to enrolling for 6.002.3x when it is offered in the future.

The second part of the 6.002x is a really interesting course. It builds upon material covered in part 1 (6.002.1x), which itself was an excellent course. All the course material, i.e. Handouts, Videos, Practice Problems, Homework, etc has been presented very well. All credit goes to the instructors. I have just completed the course with final grade 100%, and had to work really hard for it. I would suggest that you go for the course, as it will really benefit you. A must do course!
