CAPE Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technology: Unit 1

CAPE Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technology


The electrical and electronic revolution has had the greatest impact on the cultural and technological changes occurring in the twenty-first century. This has resulted in substantial growth of and dependence on a diversity of systems, gadgets, products and services that affect the lives of all people. The rapid growth and wide range of technologies, innovations and inventions in telecommunication, electronic and computer controlled systems worldwide, and the operating efficiency of these systems have created an overwhelming need for education and training to respond at equal intervals. The sustainable development of individuals with engineering and technology competencies to design, construct and maintain these gadgets, products, and services is an important imperative for education and training.

Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technology is a programme of study that offers knowledge and skills for work and lifelong learning in various engineering and technology fields. Electrical and electronic engineers manipulate electricity and use it to design and manufacture products that transmit power or process information. The syllabus, therefore, offers broad-based competencies in an appropriate combination of interdisciplinary processes, evidence-based delivery and assessment, and the development of twenty-first century and employability skills that are relevant to both the training and work environments.
