This is a professional qualification for those in or wishing to work within electrical and electronic engineering. It is a one year part-time course which leads to a recognised qualification in engineering that offers career progression for those already in employment or as a platform for continued studies at degree level.
BTEC Higher National Diplomas provide a nationally-recognised qualification The qualification is undertaken on a day-release basis over one year. The qualification provides a thorough grounding in the key concepts and practical skills required by the sector with national recognition by employers. It is the equivalent to the first year of a degree programme. The core units are:
Unit 34: Research Project Unit 35: Professional Engineering Management (Pearson-set) Unit 39: Further Mathematics Unit 44: Industrial Power, Electronics and Storage Unit 45: Industrial Systems
The Level 5 Higher National Diploma in Mechanical Engineering provides for in-depth study of key aspects of mechanical engineering and equips learners for progression within their chosen profession or for further study. Students will be assessed via vocationally relevant assignments and, in addition to classroom teaching, will be expected to develop skills in research and self-directed study.
Students must have completed an HNC in an engineering discipline. Depending on existing qualifications, learners may be required to complete additional top-up units to ensure they meet Pearson BTEC requirements
Engineering Level 5 High National Diploma in Engineering (Electrical and Electronic Engineering)
Students are assessed continually throughout the course, normally via written assignments. Some assignments may be in the form of a test.
Additional study of four hours per week is required outside of classes.
The course is aimed at those already in employment in the electronic/mechanical industry, but such employment is not an essential requirement to benefit from the course. The course does not involve work placement.
