University Centre Leeds, Leeds City College has opted into the TEF and received a Bronze award.
The purpose of the Higher National Diploma (HND) in Engineering (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. This means that you will not only learn the necessary fundamental knowledge, but also more specialist skills such as programming PLCs or designing electronic circuits. You will also be exposed to very current subjects related to sustainability and renewable energy.
In addition to academic knowledge this programme imparts practical skills in mechanical engineering (such as turning and milling) and electrical engineering (including measurement technology) and we will support you to gain work experience where you will develop your engineering skills further and also employability skills such as CV writing and interview preparation. These features have been added after consultation with employers.
The qualification has the dual aim of preparing the students for direct entry to a range of technical and management careers (such as engineering technician, control engineer, electronic design engineer or approvals/production engineer) and of offering the opportunity to enrol on top-up degrees.
The first year units are:
Unit 1: Engineering Design

Unit 35: Professional Engineering Management (Pearson-set)
Unit 39: Further Mathematics
Unit 44: Industrial Power, Electronics and Storage
Unit 45: Industrial Systems
Unit 49: Lean Manufacturing
Unit 51: Sustainability
The assessments are scheduled so that deadline clashes are minimised and the main assessment mechanisms are:
Assignments (tasks include maths problems, presentations, essays or reports)
A minimal quantity of exams
