Electude is a series of interactive diagrams and animations that are used throughout the course to increase studentsí understanding of power mechanics equipment. Some Electude activites will show students how vehicle equipment looks and moves when in action, and others will provide quizzes for the student to review their knowledge and understanding.

In this course, students will learn about the inner workings of combustion engines, and the different systems that allow cars, trucks, and other engine-based equipment to run smoothly, such as the electrical, lubrication, and cooling systems. Students interested in a career in the automotive industry, or who simply want to know more about the motor vehicles, are encouraged to take this course.

Students will gain knowledge of the different mechanical and electrical systems that allow vehicles and heavy equipment to operate. Students will learn to identify the individual parts that make up each system, and how they work together to complete their collective task. This course will also enable the student to learn about specialized tools used to diagnose and repair faulty engines, as well as about the learning opportunities available for those interested in a career in power mechanics.
