Technical Training for Professionals

To be determined

Intro

A comprehensive course for non-electronic engineers to gain insight, practical knowledge and skills in electricity and analog electronics, essential to work in projects together with electronic engineers and to learn how to handle electronic measurement instruments. 

The course consists of two modules that can be selected individually but the knowledge of module 1 is required for module 2.

Contact the course leader in case only module 2 is wanted.

Objective

After completion of this course the participant has gained:

  • Basic knowledge of electricity and analog electronics to ease the communication with electronic engineers;
  • Practical experience with electrical measurements and equipment, simple usage of an analog simulator.

Intended for

The course is intended for engineers (of technical college / university level) working in research, development and/or engineering. After this course the following course can be attended: "Electronics for non-electronic engineers basics digital electronics (ENE-BDE)".
