Who is the ‘Fundamentals of Electrical and Electronic Engineering’ Course Designed For?
This course is suitable for anyone studying, or considering study in electrical and electronic engineering at Level 3 or above.
If you are already studying electrical and electronic engineering, then it is likely that you would benefit from compounding your understanding of the topics contained in this course.
If you are considering studying electrical and electronic engineering at any level, then it is essential that you gain a sound knowledge of the application of key themes and principles, by mastering the skills contained in this course.
When studying a level 4 electrical and electronic engineering qualification with any institution, it will be assumed that you can apply all of the principles covered in this course. If you study a higher level programme with the Engineers Academy®, then you will be given complementary access to this course, alongside your main programme, for revision purposes.
Disclaimer: Please note that you will not receive a level 3 qualification upon completion of this course, as it has been designed specifically to support students who are currently studying related disciplines, or who are preparing for further study of the subject. It is not a qualification in its own right.
