Electrical  Engineering is all about designing, developing and maintaining electrical power and control systems. For example, they provide lighting, heating and ventilation for buildings, they make sure that our transport networks run efficiently and safely, they help to power the manufacturing and construction industries, and they play a crucial role in the production and distribution of power.

This 6 unit course offers a balanced programme of electrical theory, and  applications. You can find out more about the content of this Award by clicking on the 6 units below:

  1. Health and Safety in the Engineering Workplace
  2. Communications for Engineering Technician
  3. Mathematics for Engineering Technicians
  4. Features and Applications of Electrical Machines
  5. Electrical Technology 
  6. Selecting and Programming PLCs

Each unit is further split into bite sized topics to make studying easier via our online Moodle education platform. You will be assessed as you work through each topic, so there is no large end of course assessment. Some units will make use of free simulation software and also remember you have access to your tutor every step of the way.
