Course Overview

The knowledge of electrical engineering has become essential to successfully utilise electrical energy and operate electrical equipment. Electricity is not extracted out of the ground like oil or captured from air. It is a secondary source of energy that is produced by the use of primary energy sources such as coal, natural gas, or nuclear reactions.

Although it is a secondary source, electricity plays such an essential role in that its supply and demand are often examined separately from the primary sources used to produce it. For many non-electrical engineers (civil, mechanical, structural, fire protection, and other electrical professionals), understanding how electricity “works” and knowing how to specify equipment that utilises electricity can be confusing.

What does this “Electrical Engineering for Non-Electrical Engineers” course promise to offer? This program covers the important aspects of electrical engineering required for nonelectrical engineers to understand the domain, and also discussed the operating principles of some commonly used electrical devices.

Basic principles of protection of electrical components and human operators will also be assessed, along with safety procedures which are essential for non-electrical engineers.

This Zoe training course will empower you with a clear understanding of electrical engineering in a simple, easy to understand format. It will also help you achieve a working knowledge of the essential aspects of electrical engineering, as well as the principles and practices of paramount significance and pragmatic value.
