This course aims to develop both the practical skills and theoretical knowledge required by the higher technicians and technician engineers in the manufacturing and mechanical engineering industry. Eight units are required to obtain the HNC.
The normal entry requirements for a HNC programme would be the completion of a National Certificate or Diploma in a similar or related discipline.
Students without these qualifications will have their previous experience and qualifications reviewed at interview before entry to the course.
Year 1 Modules
- Application of Hydraulics and Pneumatics
- Analytical Methods
- Engineering Science
- Materials Engineering
Year 2 Modules
- Manufacturing Processes
- Planning and Scheduling Principles
- Business Management Techniques
Optional units subject to change. The student will complete 4 modules per year.
Assessment is by a varied mix of in-course assessments, assignments, projects and phase tests.
Students who complete this course can top up their qualification from HNC to a HND in Mechanical Engineering by progressing onto the HND in Mechanical Engineering course.
