Course summary

The Higher National Certificate in Engineering (General Engineering) offers students a broad introduction to the subject area via mandatory core learning, while allowing for the acquisition of some sector-specific skills and experience through the specialist units in each pathway, with the opportunity to pursue a particular interest through the appropriate selection of optional units. This effectively builds underpinning core skills while preparing the student for more intense subject specialisation at Level 5. Students will gain a wide range of sector knowledge tied to practical skills gained in research, self-study, directed study and workplace activities. Normally studied 1 year full time or 2 years part time. This programme is designed for students who wish to have options to seek careers that require a multi skilled understanding of engineering. Our programme is flexibly structured and provides both a practical and academic challenge, within the framework of current industrial practices in Manufacturing and Engineering. For some students, the HNC is the qualification most appropriate to immediate needs. You could, however, progress onto the HND Engineering (General Engineering) programme This course provides a range of skills relevant across a variety of different professions. People who have completed this course have gone on to work in areas including Manufacturing, Power industry, Design, Maintenance. If you wish to continue studying beyond this course, it will provide you with a strong academic basis to do so. The Pearson BTEC Level 4 Higher National Certificate provides a solid grounding in engineering, which students can build on should they decide to continue their studies beyond the Certificate stage. The Pearson BTEC Level 5 Higher National Diploma allows students to specialise by committing to specific career paths and progression routes to degree-level study. On successful completion of the Pearson BTEC Level 4 Higher National Certificate, students can develop their careers in the engineering sector through:
