Diploma 3 years Fee: on application

Overview

Electrical engineering is the design, building and maintenance of electrical control systems, machinery and equipment. Some electrical engineering concerns are also found in mechanical and civil engineering.

The term electrical engineering often includes electronics engineering. While electrical engineers mainly focus on large-scale production and distribution of electrical power, electronics engineers are concerned with smaller electronic circuits and often also work with computers and other modern technologies. However, any undergraduate course will include elements of both electrical and electronics engineering.

Electrical engineers work in transport networks, lighting, heating, ventilation, lift systems, power generation and distribution, renewable energy, manufacturing and construction. You will elaborate project plans, estimate project timescales and costs, manage the work of technicians and craftspeople, test installations, analyse data and ensure that health and safety regulations are met.

This electrical engineering course will equip learners with both practical and theoretical knowledge in the field of electrical engineering.

Students will be introduced to the key elements in this field of study, and exposed to hands-on experience with electrical machines, control systems, and more, to ensure they have the capability to contributing effectively to the workforce upon graduation.

Electrical engineers use mathematics and physics principles to design, develop, and assess electronic equipment and systems. You'll have the opportunity to work with a range of technologies, including household appliances, the lighting and wiring systems of buildings, power transmission, telecommunications, and satellite communications. In addition, electric engineers earn some of the highest salaries in the field. If this sounds like the right job path for you, then this diploma will provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to take the first step into this industry with confidence
