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 do I do next?
HNC in Mechanical Engineering
I enjoyed the Level 3 Diploma in Engineering and got on really well with the tutors so I thought I would progress to the HNC at SCG. The tutors and syllabus are really good compared to anything else offered locally and the facilities are excellent as well.
