Who is it for?
The Pearson BTEC Higher National qualifications in Engineering are aimed at students wanting to continue their education through applied learning. Higher Nationals provide a wide-ranging study of the engineering sector and are designed for students who wish to further develop or pursue a career in engineering. In addition to the skills, knowledge and techniques that underpin the study of the sector, Pearson BTEC Higher Nationals in Engineering give students experience of the breadth and depth of the sector that will prepare them for employment, progression within employment or further study.
Entry requirements could include A BTEC Level 3 qualification in Engineering; A GCE Advanced Level profile that demonstrates strong performance in a relevant subject or adequate performance in more than one GCE subject, (this profile is likely to be supported by GCSE grades at A* to C and/or 9 to 4 (or equivalent)) or other related Level 3 qualifications.
Entry to the course may also be available through related work experience.
What does the course involve?
The programme is comprised of eight separate units of study. Each unit has a value of 15 credits.
You must achieve a minimum of 120 credits (of which at least 65 must be at level 4) on your programme of learning to be awarded a Pearson BTEC Level 4 HNC.
- Engineering Design
- Engineering Maths
- Engineering Science
- Electrical & Electronic Principles
- Electronic Circuits & Devices
- Quality & Process Improvement aa
- Digital Principles
- Managing a Professional Engineering Project
How is the course assessed?
Your work will be continually assessed throughout the course. The assessment will depend upon the particular module being studied. Typical assessment methods include assignments, practical experiments, log books and presentations. Please refer to the Course Specification for additional information.
The HNC is a 2 year programme. You will be required to attend college for one day per week (Wednesday in year 1). The academic year is split into three terms over 30 weeks. Informal interview required. No concessions.
We do our best to make HE study as easy as possible for you and that includes making living away from home for the first time an exciting prospect, rather than a cause for concern. Student accommodation is now available in the centre of Shrewsbury.
Students can progress directly into a career in engineering or they may choose to continue their studies and study for an additional two years to achieve an HND qualification.
