What will I study?

This online electrical and electronic engineering course is tailored for those looking to specialise in electrical engineering, either for a career, or for further university study.

The course is split into 6 units. Three of these units are core engineering and are common across each level 4 course.

There are then 2 specialist electrical and electronic engineering units, plus one final optional unit of your choice (a list will be available during enrolment).

During your study you will cover the six units outlined below. You will start by studying the fundamental principles that under-pin all engineering:


Core Units

Engineering Design and Ethics – to help you to develop your engineering design skills.

Engineering Maths – so that you develop your mathematical skills that you will need to succeed with the rest of your course.

Engineering Science – to give you a grounding in the science that underpins the engineering that you will study.

Specialist Units

Electrical & Electronic Engineering Principles – This unit introduces you to properties and characteristics of electrical supplies and semiconductors. While the Electronic section focuses on Analogue and Digital signals, amplifiers and logic gates.

Electrical Machines – Here you begin to study simple robots, construction and applications of Transformers, Motors and Generators so that you can make informed decisions within the engineering context.

+1 Optional Unit – You will have access to a range of optional units, so that you can study topics that interest you. These may even lie outside the field of electrical engineering such as mechanical, aerospace, or manufacturing engineering.

To be awarded a Higher International Certificate in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EduQual Level 4), you must successfully complete 120 credits at level 4. Each of the 6 units are equally worth 20 credits each.

Is it fully accredited?

Yes. All our courses are fully accredited by a UK awarding body, EduQual.

EduQual is a regulated awarding body, approved by SQA-Accreditation, and a globally-recognised national qualifications regulator in the UK. They are a full member of the Federation of Awarding Bodies (FAB).

Are there any entry requirements?

Our Higher International Certificate courses at level 4 are accessible to all as they are open access courses, and no prior entry requirements are necessary. Our maths and science units are carefully crafted to start with the fundamentals and gradually develop your skills to the required level to successfully complete the course.

Proficiency in English language is essential as all our courses are delivered in English, and you must be able to comprehend technical information in the language.

How long will it take to complete?

On average, learners studying on a part-time basis usually take between 1 to 2 years to complete the course. Nevertheless, our distance learning engineering courses provide you with the flexibility to manage your own learning schedule, giving you the freedom to complete the course at your own pace. This means that you have the option to complete our online engineering courses more quickly, depending on your prior knowledge and personal commitments.

How am I assessed?

All of our units are assessed by 100% written assignments. There are no exams to sit.

Tutor Support

During the course, you will receive tutor support to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have. Our tutors are highly knowledgeable in engineering, with extensive teaching experience, and are available to provide you with guidance and support throughout the course.

“I successfully graduated my Higher International Certificate in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. The studies was good, tutor provide much support. I recommend iLearn Engineering for distance learning Engineering studies.”

Fuad, Higher International Certificate in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

“So far, in two weeks study I have understood more content with these guys than in one year at part time university. Really good content especially in maths and makes learning a nice smooth progressive path rather than being rushed and pressured. Top notch service 👍”  

Simon, Higher International Certificate in Mechanical Engineering

“This program is providing me with the opportunity to finally finish my engineering degree at the most reasonable cost I’ve seen in the market to date…I highly recommend iLearn Engineering for anyone who wants to get into the field or pickup where they left off.”
