HND Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Top-up) Overview

Electrical and electronic engineering, whilst being separate disciplines, are becoming more closely related due to the expansion of solid state control and monitoring systems used in high current applications.

This course will expand upon your knowledge of how electricity is generated, transmitted and used to process and store information, the operation and control of common induction motors and generators, and important business principles that a manufacturing company requires in the engineering industry. Plus giving you some of the principles used to model and design practical control systems

This course is validated by Edexcel.
