In a nutshell

As the electronics industry continues to grow worldwide, the demand for knowledge and skills within electronic engineering is high. If you’re working in the field and want to take the next step in your career, this part time course will help develop your capabilities.

The course will prepare you for a career within electronics, computing, electrical engineering, communications, or control systems and embedded systems. It also gives you the knowledge, practical skills, experience and confidence to study for an honours degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.

This course is available as part of a Personal Learning Account (PLA). PLA is an initiative from the Welsh Government which offers people the chance to access free, part-time courses with flexible and convenient learning that fits around their existing lifestyle (subject to eligibility).

This course is for...

Course content

There’s a mixture of theory (lectures and tutorials) and practice (practical workshops) through core modules in electronics, electrical machines, energy storage, and mathematics.

A project in the second part of the course develops your group working skills and you will produce a work based project.

The course is delivered through a range of lectures, tutorials and practical workshops and end of year exams.

Learners will be assessed via assignments, coursework and class tests, as well as preparing and delivering presentations to develop your communication skills.
