Basic Electrical Design for Buildings with AutoCad

Course Description:This course provides participants with all the necessary skills and knowledge to design electrical installations and also to operate and maintain these installations with the help of local and international standards and codes. It covers basic training of electrical design including Lighting and Illumination, Lighting Fixture calculation, Lighting Fixture layout, Conduit layout, Cable selection, Breaker selection, Single Line Diagram, BOQ preparation etc. along with basic autocad knowledge.This course consists of several design exercises for the candidates to carry out, which will help them to evaluate and explore the process of design and make them confident to design electrical distribution system independently.

Course Objective:

From this course, the candidates will have the knowledge to design the electrical distribution system in Residential Buildings, Commercial Buildings, and Industrial Buildings and in similar places which will enable them to conduct the verification as well as the inspection of any electrical installation. This course is industry-oriented and will make the participants ready for working in industries. They will also be highly valued by Engineering Design firms as they will not require any additional training after joining.

Who should attend and Why:

Electrical Engineers, who are interested to work on Buildings’ Electrical Design or in the Electrical Maintenance sections of any industry, should attend this course.

This course is industry-oriented and will make the participants ready for working in industries. They will also be highly valued by Engineering Design firms as they will not require any additional training after joining. They can also be self-employed after successful completion of this course.
