City of Liverpool College University Centre has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
The purpose of the BTEC Higher National Certificate in Electrical and Electronic Engineering is to develop students as professional, self-reflecting individuals who are able to meet the demands of employers in the rapidly evolving engineering sector and adapt to a constantly changing world. The qualifications also aim to widen access to higher education and enhance the career prospects of those who undertake them. The 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. On successful completion of the Level 4 Higher National Certificate, students can progress into employment or continue their study at level 5 - HND in Engineering (Top-Up) - which provides an opportunity to extend an existing HNC qualification to a higher level with study of more in depth specialist units. Additionally, the college has up-to-date equipment and software to complement or prepare students for work in engineering industries. Students working in industry alongside the course are encouraged to complete a work-based project.
Specific units for the Electrical/ Electronic programme are as follows: Mandatory Core Units: Engineering Design; Engineering Maths; Engineering Science; Managing a Professional Engineering Project. Mandatory Specialist units: Electrical & Electronic Principles. Optional Units: Automation, Robotics and PLC; Digital Principles; Electronic Circuits and Devices.
The course is assessed through a blend of assignments, practical activities, activity write-ups, coursework/research reports, project reports and presentations. Analysis and problem solving skills are developed and assessed through coursework and laboratory/ workshop activities. Practical, research and design skills are developed and assessed through coursework, assignments and laboratory/workshop activities.
