Auto Electrical

What will you study?

Motor electricians manufacture, install, repair and maintain electrical systems and equipment in motor vehicles. Motor electricians are mainly concerned with accessory systems which comprise the starter motor, generator, lights, windscreen wipers, indicators, hooters, as well as electrically operated windows, aerials and radios.
They also have a thorough knowledge of ignition systems since defects in accessory systems may have a detrimental effect upon vehicles electrical systems as a whole. Motor electricians do a fair amount of routine work such as replacing bulbs and setting regulators. Specialised work includes tracing faults with special equipment.

Subject Contents

Motor-electrical Trade Theory

Motor vehicles have two electrical systems, namely an ignition system and an accessory system. The ignition system consists mainly of the battery, distributor, induction coil, high-tension wires and spark plugs. The starter motor, alternator or generator, voltage regulators, lights, windscreen-wipers, hooters, indicators, electrically operated windows, aerials, radios, tape players, revolution counters and fuel gauges are part of the second system.

Engineering Science

Engineering Science teaches scientific principles, the use of correct science terminology, application of SI units, use of symbols, formulas and abbreviations.

Industrial Electronics

Industrial electronics engineers learn how to assembly components, measure electrical parameters and check control systems. Upon completion of their training they will also be capable of programming machine controls and know how to design and run electronic installations.

Mathematics

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.
