Basic Electricity and Electronics

 

What is this course about?


This course covers basic theory and practical applications of electricity and electronics through a combination of lecture and hands-on practical sessions. No prior knowledge of electricity is needed.

 

Participants will be presented with various key topics in electrical engineering, D.C. and A.C. circuits, multimeter, oscilloscope, power supply, circuit components, diodes, transistors, opamps, digital logic circuits, circuit simulation and project work. In addition, participants will be trained to conduct virtual experiments - giving them total flexibility to conduct experiment anytime and anywhere even after completion of the course. Course instructors have more than 20 years of combined experience providing continuing education in electricity/electronics to working adults. This course is valuable to hobbyist, new students of electronics and practising technologists from non-electrical discipline.
