Online Electrical and Electronic Engineering Courses

iLearn Engineering

iLearn Engineering is a UK based online engineering college with a range of accredited online electrical and electronic engineering courses to suit most careers in engineering.

What Is Electrical and Electronic Engineering?

Electrical and Electronic engineering plays a critical role in many industries including aerospace, manufacturing, renewable energy and automotive. In fact, a whole new industrial revolution, 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 courses you will learn about engineering design, electrical and electronic principles, electrical machines, CAD skills, 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.


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. 


iLearn Engineering as a UK based online engineering college specialising in providing online engineering courses for the next generation of engineers on an international scale. Our courses have been developed from the ground up and are specifically created so they can be delivered online. 
 

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.

Easy to Follow Bite-sized Learning

Our carefully developed learning material has been designed to be accessible to almost any learner from any background comprising of short videos, worked examples and practice questions to prepare the learner for their written assignments.

Tutor Support

Full tutor support is always on hand to help students that need that little bit of extra help, so you are never completely alone.  Tutorials can be arranged with real engineers on a one to one basis.

Online Electrical and Electronic Engineering Course Content

Our online electrical and electronic engineering courses consist of the core topics that you would expect in an engineering course, plus some contemporary topics to keep you at the forefront of technology.

You will start by studying the fundamental principles that under-pin all engineering:

Engineering Science to give students a grounding in the science that underpins the engineering they will study.

Engineering Maths so that students develop their mathematical skills that they will need to succeed with the rest of their course

Engineering Design to help students develop their mechanical engineering design skills.

 

Once these fundamental units have been completed, learners are then guided onto their specialist electrical and electronic engineering units which comprise of:

 

Electrical and Electronic Engineering Principles 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  where 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.

 

Digital engineering and electronic circuits  focuses on the number systems used in logic gates, characteristics and mechanisms of amplifiers and oscillators, testing methods and computer simulations.

 

On successful completion of this unit you will be able to use number systems and truth tables, make informed decision over suitability of devices and employ a number of testing procedures.

 

Renewable energy electrical systems where you  gain an understanding of the requirements between transducer and controllers, current energy demand, control techniques for renewable energy systems and how they are integrated into the grid. The unit will also explore environmental impacts and limitations of sustainable energy systems

 

Students also have access to a range of optional units so that they can study topics that interest them which may also lie outside the field of electrical and electronic engineering such as mechanical, aerospace or manufacturing engineering.

It is important that engineers have an appreciation of management and research skills and so you will also study:

 

Engineering Management for Professionals where you will learn the important tools and responsibilities of being in a management position within the engineering industry, such as Project Management and cost and risk analysis. But also, the wider social and economic impacts of engineering companies.

Research Skills and Project Management, this will be your opportunity to demonstrate the things you’ve learnt in a 60-credit research project. You will develop a project brief, and will lead the project using critical thinking and analysis, to result in an un-biased conclusion.

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.
