Bridging Electrical & Electronic Engineering

Our Bridging Electrical & Electronic Engineering online distance learning course has been developed to make the level 4 BTEC HNC in Engineering and beyond accessible to more people. You could be looking to study the Electrical & Electronic pathway, but may also be looking at the General, Mechanical, Manufacturing or Operations Engineering pathways, within all of which you can opt to study Electrical & Electronic units as optional units.

Our expert team of electrical and electronic tutors have developed this bridging course to prepare individuals for the challenges that the Pearson Level 4 BTEC in Engineering courses bring.

The course will prepare you in the following areas:
1. Fundamentals
2. DC Circuits
3. AC Circuits
4. Digital Electronics
5. Magnetism and Electromagnetism

The course is highly interactive and is accessed via a link to our Moodle virtual learning environment. It renders perfectly on a smartphone, tablet or laptop. Simply log in with your email and password, then you will see a host of interactive sections, each containing essential topics and theory. Interactive quizzes, exercises, and videos will cement your knowledge and build your confidence.

• Dedicated specialist tutor support via email or telephone
• Over 2 hours of pre-recorded video content
• Optional initial induction with a senior electrical & electronic engineering tutor
• Will upskill electricians and technicians for career advancement
• Expert video tutorials to complement the learning materials
• Interactive online assessments
• All learning resources can be accessed 24/7 via Moodle and the mobile app
• Course builds knowledge in sections (programmed learning
• Interactive further problems to enhance your understanding
• Go back and relearn mode (particularly useful for when you enrol on the HNC)

Please note it is strongly recommended for most learners that they study the Bridging Maths course alongside this course.
