Solar Bootcamp

Burraq Engineering Solutions is a company that provides a range of solutions related to solar energy. They probably offer solar panels, also known as solar modules, which are used to convert sunlight into electricity. 

They can also provide solar inverters, which are devices that convert direct current (DC) electricity generated by solar panels into alternating current (AC) electricity that is used in homes and businesses. They can also provide solar battery storage systems that store excess electricity generated by solar panels for later use, and solar water heating systems that use the sun’s energy to heat water for use in homes and businesses. 

The sun, either directly or indirectly, produces electricity or heat. Photovoltaic cells, which convert sunlight into electricity, and solar thermal systems, which use the sun’s energy to heat water or air, are the two main types of solar energy systems. Solar energy is a renewable and sustainable source of energy and is becoming an increasingly popular way to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and reduce carbon emissions.

The main objective of this course is to teach students to master the basic tools and commands necessary for the creation of professional 2D drawings, by learning the essential functions of the software.

  • After the training, the student should be able to:
  • Navigate the user interface independently;
  • Use the fundamental functions of the software;
  • Use precision drawing tools to create plans;
  • Modify and import pre-existing elements; – Present projects with detailed layouts; – Prepare documents for printing.

PREREQUISITES:

  • Good command of the Windows environment and technical drawing is an asset, but it is not necessary to have knowledge of CAD beforehand.

PEDAGOGY:

  • Theoretical contributions with course support supported by numerous practical exercises and an assessment of prior learning at the end of the training.
  • This course is suitable for all disciplines including, architecture, interior design, planning, electricity, industrial or mechanical design.
  • It is not planned within the framework of this training to extend on the techniques of 3D, lighting, and cameras, however, an approach will be considered if the time allows it and if the students wish it.
