HND Electrical and Electronic Engineering
About This Course
The programme evaluates the underpinning areas of engineering, design, processes, systems and technology, including various branches of science and mathematics.
It is designed to provide students who are seeking to further their career in a range of careers such as electronic circuit design/implementation, electrical power (power generation and distribution) and many more engineering career pathways. The HNC provides students who have completed a BTEC Level 3 Diploma or Extended Diploma (or equivalent) in an engineering discipline with a thorough understanding of eight further engineering subjects
Students will normally hold a BTEC Level 3 Diploma or Extended Diploma (or equivalent) in a relevant Engineering discipline. Applicants are also required to hold English and Maths GCSE (or equivalent) at grade C/4.

The assessment methods include a combination of written and practical assessments
Upon successful completion of this qualification, graduates will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to pursue a new career, or advance an existing one in the Engineering sector. Engineering careers can begin with work opportunities with small to medium enterprise organisations (those with fewer than 250 employees), or with national and multi-national organisations. Many also go onto self-employment, which is usually not possible until a graduate has several years’ experience. Other graduates will go on to work for large organisations, which may comprise roles in engineering management, engineering maintenance and servicing, project management, design engineering, planning or working on large infrastructure projects linked to the engineering and construction industries.
Further study in engineering or employment in industry as an Engineer are the options available to students once the programme is successfully completed.
