IEEE Presents: Basic Soldering Skills
Friday, March 29, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
Somerville, United States
Soldering is a must-have skill for all sorts of electrical and electronics work. It is also a skill that must be taught correctly and developed with practice. In this first-ever combined offering, IEEE and Artisan's Asylum are coming together to offer you a course that will provide the knowledge and hand-on skills to use soldering effectively in practice.
The workshop will cover the most common types of soldering required for electronics work. This includes soldering components to printed circuit boards and soldering a spliced wire joint. Most importantly, we'll address how to effectively rework the faults that almost inevitably occur during the assembly soldering process.
This course is intended for anyone who wants to gain the soldering experience needed to build electronic circuits, hobby kits, or circuit prototypes for work or play. It is an extremely useful skill to acquire if you are in the design and development of electronic circuits, circuit assembly, or just hacking circuits for fun.
Design Engineers, Application Engineers, System Engineers, young professionals, and students would want to gain the knowledge and skill of soldering.
