INTRODUCTION

The National Diploma in Electrical Engineering (NDEE) is based on a semester system. During each semester, a core project is accomplished. Being competent-based, NDEE relies heavily on core assignments. This starts with an expert example or assignment of the whole task and then modules are undertaken. These have preparatory assignments that prepare the students for the module and relate the module to the core task. Each module contains sub-modules, each of which includes a practical assignment that will help the student to learn how to perform the core task. The modules undertaken during a given semester are aimed at providing:

  • Applied theory
  • Technical and general skills
  • Professional attitude
These modules make it possible to perform the core project or assignment. The student has to carry out a real life project to put into practice knowledge and skills acquired.

AWARDS

  • A learner scoring at least 2.00 GPs in all the modules of the programme shall be awarded a National Diploma in Architecture by the National Examinations Board.
  • A learner who has scored less than 2.00 GPs in some modules in the first year may proceed to second year but will not be awarded the certificate until he has scored at least 2.00 GPs in all the modules.
  • A learner shall be provided with a statement of results by the National Examinations Board indicating the grades obtained in each module irrespective of the grades obtained.

MAXIMUM MODULES PER BLOCK

Each Semester shall contain a maximum of Ten Modules or assessment units including project work.
COURSE BREAKDOWN
Duration Semesters Semester Duration
2 (Years) 4 Semesters full time 17 Weeks Each 15 weeks(Teaching), 2 Weeks (Practical)

ASSESSMENT

The NDEE will be assessed by an authorised National Examinations Board; and the following guidelines shall be considered:

  • At the end of each semester a learner should have completed a project or an Expert Assignment.
  • The project work shall be assessed out of 100%
  • Each module shall be assessed out of 100 marks as follows: (a)Continuous Assessment 40% (b)Final Examination 60%
