The HNC is a part-time programme that is delivered over two years, either on a day release or evening basis. To achieve an HNC, a total of eight units must be successfully completed. This programme is designed to give you the flexibility and technical capability to be one of the engineers of the future, by exploring the integrated nature of engineering in general. This includes design, manufacture, maintenance, mechanical and electronic and electrical engineering. This knowledge can be applied across a huge range of industries, from food to plastics or pharmaceuticals. You could also work in utilities or even the armed forces. The HNC/D qualification is widely recognised in its own right and provides students with the skills required for employment in a broad range of industries with either a managerial or technical bias. This course will equip you with skills and knowledge across a range of core and more specialist units. The course will suit you if you’ve completed relevant studies at an advanced level (A-Level or equivalent) or have relevant industry experience and want to pursue a career in engineering. This course has been developed in collaboration with our external partners to ensure that your education is relevant and up-to-date. Emphasising the importance of work-based experience, you will have the opportunity to apply your knowledge to existing companies and gain valuable skills that will inform your future practice.
