On Successful completion of the course, students will receive the following:
- ETC Year 1 Higher Certificate in Electrical Engineering – Level 4
- A transcript detailing their subjects and grades
- An academic reference letter detailing the subjects they have studied, their academic and personal strengths
Analytical Methods for Engineers
The aim of this unit is to explain to the learner how to to analyse and model engineering situations and solve problems using algebraic and trigonometric methods, calculus, statistics and probability.
The aim of this unit is to teach learners how to determine the behavioural characteristics of elements of static engineering systems and dynamic engineering systems, to apply DC theory and single phase AC theory to solve electrical and electronic engineering problems.
Communications for Engineering Technicians
The aim of this unit is to teach students how to interpret and use engineering sketches/circuit/network diagrams to communicate technical information, use verbal and written communication skills in engineering settings, obtain and use engineering information, use information and communication technology (ICT) to present information in engineering settings.
Utilisation of Electrical Energy
This unit will enable learners to understand the operation of power transformers, applications of circuit protection for distribution and installation systems, the design and construction of lighting systems, the operation of a polyphase induction motor and determine the cost of energy used in a system in order to be energy efficient.
Management of Projects
This unit will enable learners to understand the principles of project management, plan a project in terms of organisation and people, manage project processes and procedures.
This aspect of the course will allow the student to improve their English at a higher level by joining one of the many English based courses within the college for one session over 8 weeks during the 24 week period. Learners will be able to study more advanced vocabulary and grammar in each of the four main language skills of Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking, which will complement their other study skills as they progress to year 2 of their studies.
Project Design, Implementation and Evaluation
The aim of this unit is to support students in demonstrating an understanding how to formulate a project within agreed procedures and to specification as well as evaluate and present the project outcomes.
Business Management Techniques for Engineers
This unit learners how to manage work activities to achieve organisational objectives, select and apply costing systems and techniques, understand the key functions of financial planning and control to apply project planning and scheduling methods to an engineering project.
