WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

ENGINEERING SCIENCE

A tradesman will be equipped with the knowledge and understanding of a wide ange of engineering principles. By using calculations and theory, the student will develop an understanding of abstract atomic theory. Furthermore, the student will obtain knowledge and understanding of how an electrical current together with materials, matter and gasses influences changes and enhances the provision of electronically controlled equipment for use and consumption.

ELECTRICAL TRADE THEORY

Educate students regarding electrical wiring of buildings, stationary machines and related equipment. Electricians may be equipped in the installation of new electrical components or the maintenance and repair of existing electrical infrastructure, domestic and/or businesses. Electricians may also specialise in wiring ships, airplanes and other mobile platforms as well as data and cable.

MATHEMATICS

Mathematics N1-N3 resides on the equivalent level of Grade 10-12 at school. The content is presented with an engineering approach in conjunction with a highly supported integrated dimension for the other three subjects that follow. The mathematical subject provides an opportunity to gain a better understanding and enhance practical skills in a work environment.

INDUSTRIAL ELECTRONICS

To obtain theoretical knowledge in installing, calibrating, maintaining and programming computerised equipment and instruments used in automation, telemetry, and robotics.
