ALERT : Change to May Half-Term dates: Half-term for students will start on Thursday 21st May 2020, online teaching will start again on Monday 1st June 2020. This is because your teachers are working on calculated grades

Note: You will have seen in the news that some schools/colleges are preparing for students to return on 1st June. This is not the case for us. Please continue with your learning at home until you hear otherwise.

Ardleigh Green Campus is open – only for those students that have been identified as needing to attend. All other Havering Campuses remain closed.

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. This is a classroom-based course.

Example of course modules delivered over two years:

  • Core engineering: Engineering Design, Engineering Maths, Engineering Science, Managing a Professional Engineering Project (set by Pearson)
  • Electrical and Electronics focussed: Electrical and Electronic Principles, Renewable Energy, Engineering Management, Electrical Sytems and Fault Finding

The course operates on a modular basis with each module carrying 15 academic credits. Full-time students take modules worth 60 credits per semester, with part-time students taking 30 credits. The full HNC qualification is equivalent to 120 credits.

For part-time students, the course is studied over a period of two years. Attendance is one day per week. The course will take place at our new Construction and Engineering Centre campus in Rainham.

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.

Did you know?

Past students completing the Electrical and Electronics Engineering HND 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 5 Higher National Diploma 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: 006H
  • Location: Havering College of Further and Higher Education
  • Awarding Body: Pearson
  • Students who complete the course successfully will receive a level 5 higher national diploma (HND) 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.

Part-time study conditions:

When studied part-time, the intensity of study for this course will be 50%, doubling the length of the course from one year to two years.

Timetables

For part-time students, the course is studied over a period of two years. Attendance is 1 day per week.

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 Multisim, CAD 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.

Overall workload

Per week, you will typically have: 7 hours of lectures 1 hour of workshops and simulation sessions 0.5 hours per fortnight of one-to-one meetings

Over the course of each year, you will spend 73% of your time in timetabled teaching and learning activity: Teaching and learning and assessment: 8.25 hours Independent learning: 3 hours

This course has been specifically designed for students undertaking specific pathways within an advanced Apprenticeship or school leavers who are interested in pursuing a career in the engineering sector.  The qualification may also be suitable for adults who are interested in engineering technology or for those who are considering a career change.

You can expect to study some of the following units:

  • Engineering and environmental health and safety – mandatory unit
  • Mechanical engineering principles – optional unit
  • Engineering organisational efficiency and mprovement – optional unit
  • Further engineering mathematics – optional unit
  • Further electrical and electronic principles – optional unit
  • Further engineering science – optional unit
  • Electrical and electronic principles – optional unit
  • Advanced turning and advanced milling – optional unit

Students study the mandatory unit and, in addition, four other units, some of which are listed above. Assessments have been designed to assess the knowledge, understanding and skills of students for all units studied.

This qualification has been designed as a two-year, full-time course that meets entry requirements in its own right for students wanting to progress to employment, an apprenticeship or higher education in engineering. Students gain relevant academic and practical skills and knowledge from studying a range of content focused on electrical/electronic and mechanical disciplines.

You can expect to study:

  • A Specialist Engineering Project
  • Microcontroller Systems for Engineers
  • Calculus to Solve Engineering Problems
  • Further Engineering Mathematics
  • Electrical Machines
  • Mechanical Behaviour of Metallic Materials
  • Thermodynamic Principles and Practice
  • Programmable Logic Controllers
