Being an electrical engineering student at Lehigh means he/she is required have lab every semester starting from his/her second semester of the sophmore year. We are doing lab in a weekly basis for the first two third of the semester. At the end, we will be assigned to have one or two design projects, and we will have two weeks to complete it.
Labs for electrical engineering students are usually scheduled for three hours from 1:10pm to 4:00pm. However, we either have to stay after four or come in another time if we don’t finish the project, which happens often. Professors encourages students to stay in the lab, and use the equipments in the lab for any purposes. If someone gives you an interesting electrical component (op-amp, linear regulator, etc) and you want to test it out, just go to the lab. The room 210 at Packard is usually open. Students are welcome to use any spare equipments.
This is the circuit we had to build for last week’s lab. For any circuit in the lab, we need to build it in breadboard and get the results. Build the circuit again in the computer and simulate the result. At the end, we have to verify our lab result matches that of simulation.
