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