The original design team began the project by investigating the gaps in the knowledge between students from first-year Electromechanical, and the one-year Electrical Techniques program. As anticipated, most of the gaps were mechanical in nature, with only a few gaps in electrical that could be picked up by modifications to current Techniques programs.
