Unit Name: Electrical Principles

Description: The overall purpose of this course is to provide the foundation Electro technology required by all electrical engineering paraprofessional irrespective of their area of specialisation. This course reviews and extends the coverage of the basic principles Electrodynamics, Electrostatics, Magnetism and Electromagnetism which taught in High School and develops skills in the application of these principles in an Engineering context. This course also develops skills in basic DC circuit analysis and introduces AC concepts and terminology used in AC circuits. The Electrical Technician need to be sound in his or her electrical fundamentals in order to understand any engineering problem. In the delivery of this course, emphasis will be placed on the integration of ?theoretical? and ?practical? aspects of basic Electro-technology, through use of appropriate laboratory based exercises.
