Our courses include the use of modern industry-standard software and equipment, use of analysis tools, CAD, electronic testing, material testing and automation. An ideal course for Electro-Mechanical Engineers. The purpose of BTEC Higher Nationals in Engineering is to develop you as professional, self-reflecting individuals so that you can 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. Successful completion of the HNC (Year 1) entitles you to study a further year to gain a Level 5 HND in Engineering (Year 2). Why Choose this Course?
