During my sophomore year at BYU, I learned basic skills in electronic circuit design as we had a hands-on lab where we built a stereo system. I learned how to properly design and pick appropriate components to get the desired gain in the system. I also learned quickly to troubleshoot the circuitry and how to avoid common mistakes.
My knowledge and experience with this project was deepened as I later was a teaching assistant during my junior year for this course. It deepened my knowledge of electronic circuits and helped me to explain in fully to students that were newer to the subject than I was. I was able to teach them the engineering process and how to efficiently troubleshoot their designs to make the best systems possible.
