    This course is designed for those looking to develop a career in electrical/electronic or control systems engineering, with the emphasis on applying electrical, electronic and control principles to practical situations such as PLC and robot work cells.

    We have recently made substantial investment in robotic, PLC, CNC, CAD and process control technology, and have recently opened a brand new, state-of-the-art engineering facility, the Energy Skills Centre.

    This course can also form part of a Higher Apprenticeship. 

    During the course you may study areas including:

    • Electrical, Electronic and Digital Principles
    • Industrial Robot Technology
    • Programmable Logic Controllers. 
  • Teaching and Assessment

    The majority of assessment will be assignment based which may include laboratory work, investigations, projects, practical exercises and integrative assignments that link various subject areas.

    You will learn via a combination of lectures, directed study, laboratory work, assignment work, practical exercises and a major project related to your employment.
