Associate Degree in Electrical Engineering (Part-Time)

  • Award:Associate Degree
  • Study Mode:Part-Time
  • Duration:3 Years

Overview

This programme is pitched at the technician level. The emphasis for this scheme is on learners gaining a sound theoretical and practical background in Electrical Engineering. This is realised by applying theoretical knowledge and laboratory experiences and implementing a substantial project in the final semester.  Graduates of this programme should find easy matriculation to universities and be useful employees in the Electrical Industry.  The range of jobs includes but is not limited to supervisors and technicians in the electrical power industry, which deals with power generation, transmission, maintenance and distribution. 

Paths

Pursue a Bachelor Degree in Electrical Engineering from any internationally recognized university such as UWI St. Augustine, Florida Tech, MIT or the University of Trinidad and Tobago.

Electrical Engineers focus on powering or producing electricity for devices, from conceptualization to maintenance.  The application of physics, electronics and electromagnetism allows these individuals to be placed in diverse fields such in: communications, utilities and technologies.

Mathematics 1

MATH153

This course places emphasis on the principles of algebra and trigonometry as they relate to the solution of engineering problems. It also introduces students to the theory and application of complex numbers. This is an introductory course that lays the foundation for other courses such as calculus and finite mathematics.

Barbados Community College

Calculus 1

MATH152

This course is designed to develop students’ appreciation for the powerful tool of calculus. The first unit introduces concepts which are fundamental to calculus as well as classes of problems whose solutions only attain ultimate accuracy with the introduction of the techniques of calculus. The student is introduced to the concepts of differential and integral calculus and given an appreciation for their importance in mathematical modeling.

Barbados Community College

Mathematics 2

MATH163

This course is designed to further enhance students’ ability to use mathematics in the solution of engineering problems. Topics include geometry and mensuration, algebra, including the solution of linear and quadratic equations and inequations. Students will also be introduced to the binomial expansion and its applications. The concepts of matrices and determinants are applied in the solution of simultaneous equations in 2 or 3 unknowns.

Calculus 2

MATH251

This course is designed to further develop students' appreciation for the powerful tool of calculus. The student is introduced to the differentiation and integration of more advanced algebraic and trigonometric functions. Calculus is applied to the formulation and solution of mathematical models in engineering.

Barbados Community College

Mathematics 4

MATH261

This course is designed to combine essential elements of the concepts of trigonometry and vectors, to develop students’ competence in interpretation, analysis and problem solving. The geometry component takes the student beyond the spatial analysis of shapes to the analysis of the equations defining their locus. Mathematical techniques are applied to extracting the relationships between variables by analysis of experimental data. Application is made to the design and solutions of mathematical models as applied in engineering.

Calculus 3

MATH252

This course is designed to assist students in making the transition to University level mathematics, particularly those who are embarking upon studies in Engineering or Natural Sciences. Focus is placed on the development and solutions of ordinary differential equations as well as partial differentiation and its applications to the solutions of engineering problems.

Barbados Community College

Mathematics 5

MATH262

This course is designed to assist the student in making the transition to University level mathematics, particularly those who are embarking upon studies in Engineering or Natural Sciences. Techniques for the analysis of higher order matrices and further manipulation of complex numbers are introduced. In statistics, the student is taken beyond the basic statistical tools to discrete and continuous probability distributions. Concepts of linear algebra are further developed.
