A comprehensive course for non-electronic engineers to gain insight, practical knowledge and skills in digital electronics, essential to work in projects together with electronic engineers.

13 evening lessons of 3 (17 - 20) or 4 hours (17 - 21 in case of a hands on session) and 1 test.

This training is available for open enrollment as well as for in-company sessions. For in-company sessions, the training can be adapted to your situation and special needs.


After completion of this course the participant has gained:

  • Basic knowledge of digital electronics to ease the communication with electronic engineers;
  • Simple usage of a digital simulator.

Intended for

This course is intended for engineers (of technical college / university level) working in research, development and/or engineering.

Prior knowledge: The knowledge on electricity as discussed in the course "Electronics for Non-electronic Engineers - Basics Electricity (ENE-BE)" is required to attend this course.
