This qualification is delivered at our Quarles Campus in Harold Hill. It is fully expected that all learners that begin their learning at this campus will complete their learning at this campus, regardless of the duration of the programme.

This course is year two of a part time technician course of two years, with units that include:

  • Engineering Maths;
  • Electrical & Electronic Principles;
  • Electronics;
  • Electrical Technology;
  • Health and Safety;
  • Business Systems;
  • Engineering Project.

You will partake in practical and theoretical solutions to electrical and electronic engineering problems. The units are designed to give an insight into a broad range of subjects in electrical and electronic engineering, as well as broadening your outlook to general engineering solutions.

You may be a school leaver with an interest in engineering or be progressing from BTEC 1st Diploma/GNVQ Intermediate level programme. This course will also interest those in work with a good craft qualification such as 236 part 2 or Electronic Servicing 224 or 7261. You should note that there is a wide use of mathematics within this engineering course.

The Electrical & Electronic Engineering Level 3 Extended Diploma is year two of a full time two year course.

Learners gain relevant skills and knowledge from studying a range of units, for example in electronic devices and circuits, power and energy systems, printed circuit board design and manufacture, microcontrollers and/or calculus.

Progression could be either directly to employment in Level 3 job roles, higher apprenticeship programmes or via higher education courses in engineering.

The Electrical and Electronics Engineering HNC (RQF) course, awarded by Pearson, provides students with a firm grounding in the fundamental engineering principles that are key to all engineering roles, whilst providing the opportunity to begin to specialise in a field of interest.

The course is perfect for students looking to progress from full-time level 3 study and also for those students who are already employed and are looking to extend their knowledge to progress their career. This stimulating and challenging programme of study has been designed in conjunction with industry leaders and provides the core elements for successful career progression in the electronics and electrical engineering industry.

Did you know?

Past students completing the Electrical and Electronics Engineering HNC course have gone on to employment in electrical and electronics installation and management work for a wide variety of businesses, including motor companies and power generation and distribution organisations.

  • Award: Pearson BTEC Level 4 Higher National Certificate in Engineering (Electrical and Electronic Engineering)
  • Application method: Full-time course: Apply directly to UCAS / Part-time course: Apply directly to the College
  • UCAS code: H600
  • Location: Havering College of Further and Higher Education
  • Awarding Body: Pearson
  • Students who complete the course successfully will receive a level 4 higher national certificate (HNC) awarded by Pearson.
  • Professional body accreditation: Successful completion of this course satisfies the academic requirements for the Engineering Council’s Engineering Technician standard. Upon completion of the course, students are able to refer to themselves as an Engineering Technician (EngTech) and apply for Engineering Council membership.

Timetables

The full-time course is scheduled for two consecutive days and runs from 9 am to 5 pm, with breaks spread throughout the day. The part-time course is run on one day a week from 9 am to 5 pm. Timetables are usually available one month before registration. Please note, whilst we make every effort to ensure that timetables are integrated and are as convenient as possible for our students, scheduled teaching can take place on any day of the week.

Teaching

You will be taught through a combination of lectures, workshops and meetings with your personal tutor:

  • Lectures will provide you with most of the fundamental subject information knowledge that you will require and will be taught in large groups.
  • Meetings with your personal tutor will give you the opportunity to discuss topics in detail, highlight any areas of difficulty and discuss your progression through the course.
  • Workshop and simulation sessions will give you hands-on experience of engineering techniques and software, and as a part of your course will have access to the latest engineering simulation packages, including CAD Multisim and Matlab.

Independent learning

When you are not attending lectures, workshops or other timetabled sessions, you will be expected to continue learning independently through self-study. Typically, this will involve reading journal articles and books, working on individual and group projects, undertaking research in the library, preparing coursework assignments and presentations, and preparing for examinations. Your independent learning will be supported by our excellent facilities, including the library and the learning zone.

Overall workload

Per week, the full-time course workload will include:

  • 14 hours of lectures
  • 2.5 hours of workshops and simulation sessions
  • 0.5 hours per fortnight of one-to-one meetings

Over the course of the year, you will spend 85% of your time in timetabled teaching and learning activity:

  • Teaching and learning and assessment: 16.75 hours
  • Independent learning: 3 hours

The Electrical and Electronics Engineering HND (RQF) course, awarded by Pearson, enables students with the Electrical and Electronics Engineering HNC qualification to extend their knowledge and further specialise in the electrical and electronics field.

The course is linked to professional standards and focusses on the application of the principles being learnt at this level. With a focus on analytical techniques, theoretical modelling and practical investigation, students are encouraged to solve vocational and work-based problems.

Students obtaining this HND level will be able to perform effectively in their chosen field and will have the qualities necessary for employment in situations requiring the exercise of personal responsibility and decision-making.
