This two-year, part-time course delivers a nationally recognised qualification covering a range of engineering subjects to further progress engineering careers, not only in the field of mechanical engineering, but electronic engineering as well. Learning experiences are delivered in the form of lectures, skills development, discussions and tutorials.
This HNC will provide an educational foundation for mechanical and electronic careers in engineering, joining integrated studies in the field of engineering design, automation, robotics, PLC and control systems. The course is directly relevant to individual vocations and professions, as well as developing a students’ ability in engineering through effective use and combination of the knowledge and skills gained throughout the programme.
You will have access to the latest software including AutoCAD, Solid Works, LadSim, Siemens Step 7, MultiSim etc. Students will develop a range of skills, techniques, and personal attributes essential for successful performance in the workplace.
Over the two semesters per year, from September to July, students will take part in lectures, seminars, project work, and directed activities to promote independent learning along with workshops and tutorials.
Class sizes can vary year to year but will typically have 10 – 25 students. All staff delivering on the course have a minimum qualification at Level 6 or above and substantial experience working within a relevant engineering or technology sector.
Students who attend the HNC programme will be expected to attend college for the equivalent of one day per week over two academic years. Students can expect to receive their course timetable within two weeks prior to the start date or during their induction week in September. You will be supported through group and individual tutorials and our HE upgrade sessions by your course tutor.
Although the course is one day per week, there is a substantial amount of self-study required in order to be successful on this programme.
