UK Accredited Electrical and Electronic Engineering Qualifications

Higher International Certificate in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EduQual Level 4) [120 credits]

This online electrical and electronic engineering course has a total of 120 credits meaning that it is benchmarked to be equivalent to a full year of undergraduate study. Moreover, being a Level 4 electrical and electronic engineering course means that it is benchmarked to the first year of a university degree course in electrical and electronic engineering.

Most students are eligible to enrol directly on to this course because we teach you all the maths and science that you need to be successful with the rest of the course.

Students that already have a level 4 qualification in engineering, or those that have completed our Higher International Certificate in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EduQual Level 4) qualification, are eligible to enrol on to

Higher International Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EduQual Level 5) [240 credits]

This online course develops your knowledge in electrical and electronic engineering at a deeper and more specialist level and once completed you will become eligible to apply to universities to top-up your qualification to degree level.

Students working on a part time basis can typically complete these courses in a time frame of between 1 and 3 years. However, you are in control of your own learning, and it is in principle possible to finish the course much sooner than this.

Most students are eligible to enrol directly on to this course because we teach you all the maths and science that you need to be successful with the rest of the course.

Engineering Diploma [40 credit]

We also offer a range of shorter online electrical and electronic engineering courses leading to the accredited qualifications of:

Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Diploma in Electrical Technology

Diploma in Renewable Energy (Electrical)

Diploma in Electronics

These qualifications are ideal for learners that wish to study a specific topic of interest to them all who wish to complete the course in a shorter time frame then our full 120 credits courses above. These 40 credit qualifications can typically be completed in a time frame of between two and six months.

Fast Track Qualifications [20 credit]

For students who are looking to complete an online electrical and electronic engineering course in the shortest time frame possible, we have the following accredited 20 credit qualification:

Certificate in Engineering (EduQual level 4/5)

Students can typically complete this fast-track engineering course online within one to three months.

The characteristics of basic semiconductors

The characteristics of basic semiconductors In some of our previous articles on Electrical and Electronic Engineering we’ve looked at induction, waveforms and capacitance.  We’re now going to move on to looking at semiconductors and how they fit in to these principles. What is a semiconductor? Semiconductors form the basis of all microprocessors and integrated circuits.  […]

Trigonometric representation of periodic waveforms.

Trigonometric representation of periodic wave forms While we’ve already looked at periodic wave forms in a previous article, we’re going to jump into the trigonometric representations and see some of the essential calculations we need. Before we jump in, just to refresh our memory, let’s look at an image of two sinusoidal waveforms ‘in phase’:  […]

What are the principles of inductance and capacitance?

What are the principles of inductance and capacitance? In our previous article on inductance, we jumped into the behaviour of inductance and what it is.  Now we’re going to look at the principles of inductance, as well as the principles of capacitance. Inductance and Capacitance. We’ve already touched on the surface of inductance in our […]

Why Choose iLearn Engineering®?

Real Chartered Engineers

We are a team of Chartered Engineers and academics. We understand what engineers need to know and we also understand what engineering businesses expect from their engineers.

Enrol 356 days a year – start when you are ready

iLearn Engineering® take a unique view to how their courses are made available to their learners. First, learning is asynchronous, meaning that learners can start their course anytime, 365 days a year.

No schedules, no classes, no deadlines, and no exams.

Instead unlike a traditional college, with iLearn Engineering® the learner is in control over how long it takes them to complete their course. Students study the learning material at their own pace, fitting it in around their existing commitments, and therefore learners do not need to give up their job or other commitments to gain an engineering qualification.

Full UK Accreditation

The electrical and electronic engineering courses that iLearn Engineering® deliver have been accredited by a UK awarding body to be at levels 4 and 5 which makes them equivalent to studying the first and second years of a university course in electrical and electronic engineering.  Therefore, you can be assured of the academic rigour and quality of courses on offer.

It is not surprising then that many students or keen to study electrical and electronic engineering given the wide range of interesting careers that are on offer.

What Is Electrical and Electronic Engineering?

Electrical and Electronic engineering plays a critical role in many industries including aerospace, manufacturing, renewable energy and automotive. The so-called Industry 4.0 is increasingly being built around the ability of engineering companies to embrace advanced, digital, ways of working.
Fundamentally, Electrical engineering is the design, build, application of, and maintenance of electrical control systems, machinery and equipment. However, it’s increasingly important that electrical engineers also understand the engineering principles that underpin the world around us, in order to integrate digital control to physical machines and robots.

In our online electrical and electronic engineering  courses you will learn about engineering design, electrical and electronic principles, electrical machines,  industrial systems, and renewable energy systems and storage. In addition you will cover the fundamental maths and science that underpin engineering as a whole.

Engineering is often said to be the application of science, and never was it truer than in today’s modern economy where it plays a pivotal role in the development of new solutions to today’s global problems.

Electrical and Electronic engineering is one of the fundamental areas of engineering, comprising of many sub-disciplines all of which play a significant role in shaping the solutions to many of today’s human problems. Electrical and Electronic engineering can be found everywhere from transportation, computing, energy and sustainability.
