This programme will suit students with an interest in Engineering. There are three different pathways that can be followed: Electronic and Electrical Engineering - This programme will suit students with an interest in electrical and electronic engineering. The programme will teach you core engineering principles and has been devised to enhance and fill the skill gaps for higher professional technicians or employees looking to up-skill. Mechanical Engineering - This is specifically concerned with design, development, installation, operation and maintenance of just about anything that has movable parts. As a result, there are job opportunities for mechanical engineers in practically every field of work. Industries entered include aerospace, defence and energy as well as the manufacturing of industrial and domestic products, drugs, furniture and foods. General Engineering - The HNC in General Engineering offers you the opportunity to study the discipline of engineering at technical level, and as such provide you with a qualification that reflects your theoretical and practical knowledge at level 4. Manufacturing Engineers help design in the most efficient ways to produce goods across a huge range of industries from food to plastics and pharmaceuticals. You could also work in utilities or even the armed forces.
The modules you study will depend on which subject pathway you've chosen. Below are examples of the modules linked to each pathway: Electronic and Electrical Engineering: Year 1: Engineering Design Engineering Maths Engineering Science Electrical and Electronic Principles Year 2: Managing a Professional Engineering Project Automation, Robotics and PLC Digital Principles Electronic Circuits and Devices Mechanical Engineering: Year 1: Engineering Design Engineering Maths Engineering Science Materials, Properties and Testing Year 2: Managing a Professional Engineering Project Mechanical Principles Fundamentals of Thermodynamics and Heat Engines Computer Aided Design and Manufacture General Engineering: Year 1: Engineering Design Engineering Maths Engineering Science Materials, Properties and Testing Year 2: Managing a Professional Engineering Project Mechanical Principles Engineering Maintenance - Neath / Production Engineering for Manufacture - Newtown Computer Aided Design and Manufacture
Dependent on the modules, assessment can vary between assignments, labs, class tests and end examinations.
