Course summary

The BTEC Higher National Diploma prepares students to move on to specific areas of electrical and electronic engineering at Level 6 or to enter employment with the qualities and abilities necessary for roles that require personal responsibility and decision making. Students will be able to develop and apply their own ideas to their studies, to deal with uncertainty and complexity, to explore solutions, demonstrate critical evaluation and use both theory and practice in a wide range of engineering situations. At conclusion of Level 5 study, students will have a sound understanding of the principles in their area of specialist study and will know how to apply those principles more widely in the industry. They will be able to perform effectively within their specialist area. Our bespoke ‘accelerated’ delivery model allows students the opportunity to progress their study and career development on a full-time HND in only one year without protracted timetables or time away from industry. For further information, please get in touch. The Pearson BTEC Level 5 Higher National Diploma (HTQ) allows students to specialise by committing to specific career paths and progression routes to degree-level study (level 6 onwards).

This Higher Technical Qualification is approved against occupational standards decided by employers. Learn more about Higher Technical Qualifications.
