About Electrical Engineering

This programme is aimed at technically minded people, who have the ability to think logically and put plans into practice. Just about
everything connects to (or was made using) electricity. Every new building, from house to office park, needs electricians to make it work.
Older buildings need maintenance, repairs and upgrades. The global trend to greener, more efficient technology requires electricians
to gain experience on new & changing technology. A good electrician is a busy electrician.
