More information is available concerning the upcoming free circuits and electronics course offered by MIT.

We can’t say it will be easy. While anyone can sign up, MIT recommends you have college-level physics in electricity and magnetism under your belt, as well as “basic” calculus, linear algebra and differential equation knowledge.

That said, for anyone who’s tinkered with a soldering iron, built their own PC, or is fascinated by smartphone technology, this should prove interesting.

The course starts on March 5 and runs till June 8, and if you get through it you receive a certificate of accomplishment (electronic, not on paper)….

This low-cost approach is gaining momentum in some circles.
