Applied Electronics (AELC)

In view of the increasing use of complex electronic equipment on board and this subject being a weak area for many Electrical officers, training in shipboard electronics is a crying need of the industry.
Course | Updated

Designed to systematically enhance the participant’s knowledge from a basic level to an understanding of advanced concepts in electronics, this highly practical oriented course fosters confidence and competence development in troubleshooting of electronic faults.

Extensive practical exercises on at least 6 projects are performed to enhance understanding of electronic fundamentals and behaviour of the circuit under normal and fault conditions.

Further, to enable many more circuits to be covered within the duration of the course, Circuit Maker Simulation Program is incorporated to simulate several electronic circuits under normal working and fault-induced conditions.

The course is conducted in a dedicated laboratory which incorporates specially designed workbenches provided with various power supplies, oscilloscopes and function generators. 

Course Objective: On completion of this course, the participant should be able to

  • describe the basic principles of electronics.
  • identify electronic components and their various applications on board.
  • demonstrate the use of various test and measuring instruments used in electronics.
  • trace and analyze electronic circuits.
  • carry out routine maintenance and troubleshooting on electronic equipment.
  • learn through sharing of experiences amongst participants.
