Durham College is seeking an experienced and motivated professional who shares our commitment to quality and student success. The School of Science and Engineering Technology requires a part-time professor to teach CIRE 2132 – Electronic Circuits II.
Electronics Circuits II is a continuation of Electronics Circuits I. Classes of Amplifiers will be revisited to culminate with Class C Amplifiers from CIRE 1131 to then proceed; to introduce one of the most versatile and widely used electronic devices in linear applications, the operational amplifier or op-amp. Different op-amps will be studied and given the data sheets of the component, its major characteristics will be discussed and compared to those of an ideal op-amp while evaluating their impact on a circuit design. Negative and positive feedback will be explained and used in the design of several op-amp applications such as amplifiers, adders/subtractors, comparators, instrumentation amplifiers, filters, oscillators and waveform generators. Various sensors will be discuss, used and if necessary, signal conditioning will be applied to them in order to carry the electrical signal generated into a microcontroller board such as the Raspberry Pi and/or Arduino UNO. This course is complemented by a lab program, which reinforce skills in electrical measurement and analysis of observed data. The lab experiments will also allow the student to verify principles dealt with during the lecture periods. This course will use the circuit simulation package Proteus and the interactive computer program LabVIEW. This course is configured as 3 hours of lecture and a 2-hour lab per week.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR PART-TIME FACULTY APPLICANTS
Part-time recruitment is ongoing and is dependent on when courses are being taught and the need for faculty to teach. Part-time faculty teach up to 6 hours per week with varied schedules Monday through Thursday between 8:00 am and 9:00 pm, Fridays between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm and Saturday and Sunday between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm.
