ABOUT THE COURSE
This qualification is designed to meet the needs of those already in employment and looking to further their career within engineering. The Level 4 HNC in Engineering (General) is designed to develop your knowledge and skills in electrical, electronic and mechanical engineering technologies which are crucial to organisations in this dynamic sector.
If you’re looking to further develop your technical knowledge and skills, this course will allow you to study a more diverse range of units from digital principles to electrical testing and principles.
The course will be internally assessed through a programme of assignments, projects, case studies and practical activities.
Core units: // Engineering Design // Engineering Maths // Engineering Science // Managing a Professional Project
Optional units 4 required - delivery subject to demand: Mechatronics // Mechanical Workshop Practices // Mechanical Principles // Fundamentals of Thermodynamics and Heat Engines // Machining and Processing of Engineering Materials // Materials, Properties and Testing // Fluid Mechanics // Instrumentation and Control Systems // Electro, Pneumatic and Hydraulic Systems // CAD for Maintenance Engineers // Digital Principles // Electrical Machines // Electronic Circuit and Devices // Electrical Systems and Fault Finding //Electrical and Electronic Principles
WHERE DOES IT LEAD?
An Engineering Higher National Certificate can lead to further progression in the engineering sector. It can also provide the option to top up your Higher National Certificate to a Level 5 Higher National Diploma. This requires you to study a further 8 units to complete your HND.
