Level 3 Fundamentals of Electrical and Electronic Engineering



This course covers the fundamentals of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Most of the topics in this course would be covered on any level 3 Engineering programme, particularly if your studies are electrically biased. If you are currently studying Electrical / Electronic Engineering at level 3, or wish to revise prior to commencing an Electrical / Electronic Engineering course at level 4 or above, then this course will provide a suitable foundation of knowledge and understanding.

Note: This course is best studied in conjunction with the ‘Level 3 Essential Mathematics for Engineers’ course, as many of the topics require the application of maths.
