About the HND Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme
Do you possess a HNC in Electrical/ Electronic Engineering?
The HND Electrical and Electronic Engineering takes your HNC knowledge and skills to the next level, giving you a thorough understanding of the industry and opportunities to develop specialist skills relevant to your work environment. There are opportunities throughout the programme to focus on more computer influenced areas of electrical and electronic engineering that will enable graduates to pursue further study in engineering or a career in the industry.
Applicants must have completed and passed the full HNC (10 Units) in Electrical / Electronic Engineering.
What you will learn
Full and part time students will study the following modules:
- Research Project
- Professional Engineering Management
- Further Mathematics
- Industrial Power, Electronics and Storage
- Industrial Systems
In addition, full time students will also study:
- Further Electrical, Electronic and Digital Principles
- Utilisation of Electrical Power
Learning & Teaching Methods
Methods of learning and teaching are designed to support students in becoming active members of a learning community. Students will be expected to work together in an informal environment as well as in formal classes where a culture of dignity, courtesy and mutual respect with staff and their peers is essential. A variety of methods will be used such as lectures, workshops, student led seminars and practical sessions. Integrating a work-based or placement opportunity, students will be visited in the workplace by a member of Institute staff to ensure a positive partnership between the employer mentor and to monitor that learning in the workplace is effective. Workplace learning is designed to support the development of an employable graduate equipped with the attributes, skills and knowledge to progress within a global market.
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 less 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.
Once completed, you have the option of further study (such as an engineering degree) or employment in the electrical/electronic engineering industry.
