The HND in Engineering develops a wide range of skills related to modern engineering and technology preparing students for work in the engineering industry or for a top-up to a full engineering degree at university. The emphasis is on implementing engineering solutions for the modern engineering environment. The course gives students the opportunity to take advantage of excellent engineering facilities situated in a purpose built environment. The course includes a full range of engineering skills and technologies including Solid modeling, Design, CAD, Project Management, Electronics and Manufacturing. The course sets these skills and technologies in a context by including different concepts, a substantial work experience opportunity and a project based around the student’s own engineering interest. Year 1 comprises the HNC (Level 4 Higher National Certificate) qualification. Students can then progress on to the second year HND (Level 5 Higher National Diploma) to fully complete the qualification.
The HND will lead to progression to university to complete a full degree or Career Opportunities in Engineering and Manufacturing industry for example : Aeronautical, Marine, transport engineering.
