Knowledge of Electricity and Electronics is extremely valuable nowadays!
Electronic circuits are everywhere, from computers and smartphones, to home appliances and cars. Think of all the everyday objects that are becoming “smart”… in the future, most of the things that we own will contain some electronics. Jobs in electronics are in high demand and well paid in almost every country!
Building electronic products is incredibly rewarding, whether you do it professionally or just as a hobby. There is just something different and exciting about designing something physical that can be hold in one’s hand and that interacts with the outside world, and today it has become incredibly easy to get started thanks to cheap development boards such as the Arduino and Raspberry Pi, combined with the right knowledge.
Differently than what happens in other disciplines, knowledge of Electronics does not become obsolete, but it is always current as it is intimately connected to physics and to the fundamental laws of nature. Hence, while new components and chips might come along every year, the fundamental principles of Electronics always stay the same.

While most of the material and courses available online tend to be high-level and focused on applications (for instance, it shows students how to connect components on a breadboard to create a circuit), the goal of this course is to explain the fundamental concepts of Electricity and Electronics, to allow you to fully understand how circuits work. Every topic is addressed starting from the first principles of the underlying physics and fundamental laws, and only later the acquired knowledge is used to explain how to design more complex circuits for different applications.

•Fundamental concepts of Electricity (Current, Energy, Voltage, Power)
•Most important electronic components (Resistor, Capacitors, Diodes, etc)
•The main laws governing currents and voltages in circuits (Ohm’s law, Kirchhoff’s laws, etc)
•Interface with Microcontrollers (coming soon)

This is an introductory course about the theory of Electricity and Electronics, so no previous knowledge is required. To get the best out of the lessons, students should be comfortable with some basic arithmetic as I will often write and solve equations, in particular when analyzing simple circuits. Understanding a bit of physics can help too, but it is not required. Most importantly, no special hardware or software is required.

You will learn

✓ Understand the concept of electric Voltage and Current
✓ Understand how the most important electronic components work
✓ Analyze and design basic electronic circuit


• Desire to learn how electronic components and circuits really work
• No hardware, software or components are required
• Basic arithmetic and physics

This course is for

• Makers who want to understand how electronic components really works
• College students who want to refresh basic topics of electronics
• Electrical Engineers who have forgotten the basics
Electrical Engineer and Teacher
Hi! I’m Fabrizio. I’m an Electrical Engineer based in Silicon Valley. I have years of experience with hardware product development, circuit board design and, above all, a passion for Electronics and Technology. During my Doctorate I “served” as Teaching Assistant, teaching basic electronics to students in different majors, one of the best experiences of my life!
Since well before I went to High School, I have always loved breaking things apart, understanding how products work and designing my own electronic projects. At the time there were not many resources available for intrepid young Makers such as myself… while today there is a plethora of tools available and it is so much easier to get started!
Building your own electronic circuit is incredibly rewarding, and I encourage everyone to give it a try. If you are curious about electronics, want to design circuits and really understand how things work, then my courses are for you. Unlike most of the material you can find online which simply teaches you how to put things together, my courses are comprehensive and complete, covering both fundamentals (physics, equations, analysis) as well as applications.
I genuinely believe that my courses are the best on the market and I hope you love them too! Sign up to my courses and join me in this amazing adventure today.
