ELEC521 - Design Diagnostics for Electric Vehicles
ELEC521 Course Summary
These are level 5 courses and we strongly recommend that individuals have extensive knowledge of electric vehicle systems, including how to isolate/lock out electric vehicles.
ESP units at Level 5 have been designed to demonstrate the application of emerging technologies across a range of industrial contexts. Units at this level integrate tutor led activities with self-paced learning that link theoretical aspects to emerging industrial / manufacturing situations. The units have been designed to suit learners at Level 5, or those with higher level STEM qualifications seeking to upskill in emerging technologies. Those learners without a suitable STEM background at Level 3/4 would be advised to study the relevant Level 3/4 units first.
Knowledge : Has practical, theoretical or technological knowledge and understanding of a subject or field of work to find ways forward in broadly defined, complex contexts. Can analyse, interpret and evaluate relevant information, concepts and ideas. Is aware of the nature and scope of the area of study or work. Understands different perspectives, approaches or schools of thought and the reasoning behind them.
Skills – Determine, adapt and use appropriate methods, cognitive and practical skills to address broadly defined, complex problems. Use relevant research or development to inform actions. Evaluate actions, methods and results.
