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
