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.

The Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma has primarily been designed for learners who want to pursue a career in engineering and who want to be able to collaborate across and apply knowledge, skills and understanding in other branches of engineering. They can either progress directly to an apprenticeship or to employment as an engineering technician or can choose to progress to higher education to study for an engineering degree or HNC. It is equivalent in size to three A-Levels at 1080 GLH and is intended to be a Technical Level qualification. It has also been designed to meet the Tech Bacc measure when studied alongside Level 3 mathematics and the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).

Engineering covers a broad variety of roles and it involves the application of scientific principles and practical knowledge to transform ideas and materials into products and systems safely and support them during their lifetime. This qualification has a focus on a broad range of engineering specialist areas including electrical and electronic, mechanical, and others for example manufacturing. Learners will study 7-mandatory units and 8- optional units including the following topics: engineering principles, health and safety, engineering product design, micro controller systems, commercial and quality principles, project and calculus. Through the optional units, learners will study a mix of electrical/electronic, mechanical and other engineering specialist areas. The choice and units combinations will be decided based on local and employment needs. The content of this qualification has been developed in consultation with employers and professional bodies to ensure relevance to current industry practice in engineering occupational disciplines. In addition, academics have been consulted on the content development to ensure the qualification supports progression to higher education.

The EAL Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Engineering Technologies is a Vocational Related Qualification (VRQ). It has been specifically designed for learners in full time education who are interested in pursuing a career in the engineering sector, including occupations and job roles such as maintenance engineer, mechanical engineer, welder and/or fabricator, and electrical and/or electronic engineer. The qualification is also suitable for other learners, including adults, who would like to progress to a higher level course. The qualification does not require evidence of occupational competence in the workplace. However, the units of the qualification have been derived from the relevant National Occupational Standards and so contribute to developing the skills and knowledge that have been identified to operate effectively in job roles within the Engineering Sector. This is a graded qualification; learners can achieve a Pass, Merit, Distinction or Distinction*

You will learn through combination of:

  • Lectures will provide you with most of the fundamental subject 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, raise any areas of difficulty and discuss your progression through the course
  • Workshop and simulation sessions 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

When 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, individual and group projects, undertaking research in the library, preparing coursework assignments and presentations, and preparing for examinations.
