HIGHER NATIONAL DIPLOMA (HND)

The Engineering Higher National Diploma (HND) programs will enable you to enhance your understanding of engineering and help your career advancement. By studying Electrical and Electronic Engineering you can choose from a range of units that will allow you to tailor your studies towards electronics or electrical power, or a combination of the two.

HND Electrical and Electronic Engineering program will teach core engineering principles and demonstrate how the knowledge can be used effectively in the workplace. The HND Electrical and Electronic Engineering is designed to refine skills, and is ideal for engineers working in electronic design, power engineering, manufacture and maintenance.

On successful completion of the HND Electrical and Electronic Engineering, you could progress onto our BSc (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering ‘top up’ course.

PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

The objectives of the BTEC Higher Nationals in Engineering are as follows:

PEO 1    To provide students with the core knowledge, skills and techniques that all engineers require, irrespective of future specialism, to achieve high performance in the engineering profession.

PEO 2    To build a body of specialist knowledge, skills and techniques in order to be successful in a range of careers in engineering at the Associate Engineer or Operational Engineer level.

PEO 3    To develop the skills necessary to fault find and problem solve in a timely, professional manner, reflecting on their work and contributing to the development of the process and environment they operate within.

PEO 4    To understand the responsibilities of the engineer within society, and work with integrity, regard for cost, sustainability and the rapid rate of change experienced in world class engineering.

To meet these objectives Department of Electrical Engineering is:

  • Providing a thorough grounding in engineering principles at Level 4 that leads the student to a range of specialist progression pathways at Level 5, relating to individual professions within the engineering sector.
  • Equipping individuals with the essential qualities of an engineer, including integrity, regard for cost and sustainability, as they apply to a range of roles and responsibilities within the sector.
  • Enabling progression to a university degree by supporting the development of academic study skills and the selection of appropriate units for study at Level 4 or 5.
  • Enabling progression to further professional qualifications in specific engineering disciplines by mapping the units studied to the requirements of the Professional Bodies applicable to that discipline.
  • Supporting a range of study modes and timeframes for completion of the qualifications.

KEY BENEFITS

Pearson BTEC Higher National qualifications in Electrical and Electronics Engineering offer:

  • A stimulating and challenging program of study that will be both engaging and memorable for students.
  • The essential subject knowledge that students need to progress successfully within or into the world of work or onto further study.
  • A simplified structure: students undertake a substantial core of learning, required by all engineers, with limited specialism in the Higher National Certificate, building on this in the Higher National Diploma, with further specialist and optional units linked to their specialist area of study.
  • Refreshed content that is closely aligned with employer, Professional Body and higher education needs.
  • Assessments that consider cognitive skills (what students know) along with effective and applied skills (respectively how they behave and what they can do).
  • Unit-specific grading and Pearson-set assignments.
  • A varied approach to assessment that supports progression to Level 6 and also allows centres to offer assessment relevant to the local economy, thereby accommodating and enhancing different learning styles.
  • Quality assurance measures – to ensure that all stakeholders (e.g. Professional Bodies, universities, businesses, colleges and students) can feel confident in the integrity and value of the qualifications.
  • A qualification designed to meet the needs and expectations of students aspiring to work in an international setting.

SCOPE & OPPORTUNITIES

The Level 5 Higher National Diploma allows students to specialize by committing to specific career paths and progression routes to degree-level study. On successful completion of the Level 5 Higher National Diploma, students can develop their careers in the engineering sector through:

  • Entering employment
  • Continuing existing employment
  • Linking with the appropriate Professional Body
  • Linking with the appropriate vendor accredited certificates [if appropriate]
  • Committing to Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
  • Progressing to universit

Students should always check the entry requirements for degree program at specific Higher Education providers. After completing a BTEC Higher National Certificate or Diploma, students can also progress directly into employment.

The skills offered as part of the Pearson BTEC Higher National Diploma can provide graduates with the opportunity to work in many different areas of the engineering. Below are some examples of job roles each qualification could lead to.
