Electrical Systems and Fault Finding

Shrewsbury Colleges Group

Progression and benefits

Engineers wishing to further develop their skills and knowledge, may choose additional fully funded modules taken from the HNC (HTQ) in Electronic Systems or enrol to the full higher technical qualification.

About the course

The aim of this unit, taken from the Pearson BTEC Higher Nationals Engineering Suite, introduces students to the characteristics and operational parameters of a range of electrical system components that are used in a variety of applications; and how to fault find when they go wrong.
On successful completion of this unit students will be able to follow electrical system circuit diagrams, understand the operation of the various components that make up the system and select the most suitable fault-finding technique. Therefore, students will develop skills such as critical thinking, analysis, reasoning, interpretation, decisionmaking, information literacy, information and communication technology literacy, innovation, creativity, collaboration, and adaptability.
