Mathematics is the study of topics such as quantity, structure, space, and change. It involves the identification of patterns and formulating new conjectures based on them. Mathematicians strive to prove the truth or falsity of these conjectures. There are many fields of mathematics, some of which are widely used for practical applications.
The engineering processes that combine electrical and mechanical engineering in the application of electromechanics in devices that need electricity to create mechanical movement or devices that create electricity by mechanical movement.
Understand the principles of electricity and electrical power circuits, as well as the associated risks.
- Design drawings
Understand design drawings detailing the design of products, tools, and engineering systems.
- CAD software
The computer-aided design (CAD) software for creating, modifying, analysing or optimising a design.
- Electrical equipment regulations
The national and international regulations with regards to the use and manufacture of electrical equipment on the workfloor. These regulations provide rules and guidelines on topics such as general risk management, electrical equipment manufacture, electrical equipment testing, electrical equipment installation, warning labels, and certificates.
- Electrical engineering
Understand electrical engineering, a field of engineering that deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism.
- Manual draughting techniques
Techniques used for creating detailed drawings of designs by using specialised pencils, rulers, templates and scales.
- Electrical machines
Electrical apparatus that are able to convert mechanical energy to electrical energy (generators), electrical energy to mechanical energy (motors), and change the voltage level of an AC or alternating current (transformers).
- Electrical wiring diagrams
The visual schematic representation of an electrical circuit, its components, and the connections between these components.
- Mechanical engineering
Discipline that applies principles of physics, engineering and materials science to design, analyse, manufacture and maintain mechanical systems.
- Technical drawings
Drawing software and the various symbols, perspectives, units of measurement, notation systems, visual styles and page layouts used in technical drawings.
- Liaise with engineers
Collaborate with engineers to ensure common understanding and discuss product design, development and improvement.
- Design electromechanical systems
Draft sketches and design electromechanical systems, products, and components using Computer Aided Design (CAD) software and equipment.
- Use technical drawing software
Create technical designs and technical drawings using specialised software.
- Use CAD software
Use computer-aided design (CAD) systems to assist in the creation, modification, analysis, or optimisation of a design.
- Customise drafts
Edit drawings, schematic diagrams, and drafts according to specifications.
- Create technical plans
Create detailed technical plans of machinery, equipment, tools and other products.
- Interpret electrical diagrams
Read and comprehend blueprints and electrical diagrams; understand technical instructions and engineering manuals for assembling electrical equipment; understand electricity theory and electronic components.
- Model electromechanical systems
Model and simulate an electromechanical system, product, or component so that an assessment can be made of the viability of the product and so the physical parameters can be examined before the actual building of the product.
- Design prototypes
Design prototypes of products or components of products by applying design and engineering principles.
