Project Description

This course provides non- engineers and other professionals with an introduction into the core subject areas of electromechanical engineering. Engineering as a profession is becoming increasingly multi-disciplinary, and is also combining with other professions. People can find themselves working with electrical/mechanical engineers, without understanding the technical language or the key engineering principles.

This course covers a broad range of electrical and mechanical engineering subjects.  The subjects are explained with examples of engineering applications, with a range of exercises to enhance understanding and support learning. Comprehensive references are provided for participants who would like to further their learning on any specific topic in further detail

Why attend

This course focuses on the traditional electrical and mechanical engineering subject areas. It covers design, statics (stationary objects), dynamics (things that move), fluids (gases and liquids) and other general subjects. The theory covers the terminology and the basic laws that underpin each topic. A better understanding of the precise use of terms can help improve communication with mechanical engineers, and participation in mechanical engineering projects. For example, we discuss the difference between ‘gauge’ and ‘absolute’ pressure, and why that matters.

As far as concern the electrical engineering the course focuses on basic electrical design concepts that will meet the demands of industrial and commercial design, construction, and maintenance. In addition to familiarizing participants with basic electrical circuits and circuit parameters, the course provides a general understanding of the methods used to design low voltage power distribution systems (600 volts or less).


Course Objectives

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  •   Explain the main subject areas of mechanical engineering

  •  Recognize the key terminology and the fundamental laws

  •  Clarify communications with mechanical engineers.

  • Analyze engineering problems better

  • Participate more effectively in mechanical engineering projects

  • Understand and apply electrical code requirements

  • Design electrical systems in compliance with the code

  • Broaden your knowledge of electrical equipment, wire and cable applications

  •  Relate electrical code to grounding and bonding requirements

  • Determine the code requirements for motor applications, substations, and high voltage lines

Who should attend

This course is designed for professionals who work alongside electrical and mechanical engineers or in organizations where electrical and mechanical engineering is an important part of their business.  It is also beneficial for those who wish to broaden their knowledge base and gain a practical insight into the subject
