Engineering Studies

Electrical and Electronic Engineering Courses

Do you enjoy working with electrical circuits, electrical appliances, or electronic devices? Are you interested in learning more about how they work? If yes, you may be interested in studying electrical or electronic engineering courses.

What is the difference between electrical and electronic engineering?

Electrical and electronic engineering courses focus on giving you the skills you need to design, build, and configure electrical circuits and electronic devices. Electronic engineering is often regarded as a subdivision of electrical engineering. While electrical engineering focuses broadly on the generation and supply of power (both on a large and a small scale), electronic engineering typically focuses on the use of electrical circuits in electronic devices (such as microwaves, computers, and cellphones).

What will you learn in this Engineering Studies: Electrical N1 course?

This course is theoretical training to prospective artisans via the NATED Programme. The N1 foundation level is the first in a 3-level engineering programme. In N1 you will learn the mathematics, science and drawing skills that form the basis of all engineering trades. Learn the skills and techniques to research, design, install and test electrical and electronic equipment and supervise its manufacturing. The electrical trade involves the generation, distribution and management of all appliances and installations that generate or use electrical energy.
