What's Involved

You will focus on analytical techniques, theoretical modelling and practical investigation to solve vocational and work-based problems. This qualification, which is validated through Pearson, provides a thorough grounding in the key concepts and practical skills required in the modern engineering industry. An HND is intended for self-motivated individuals looking to enhance their promotional prospects or to further their education. It is delivered on a full-time study basis over one year for students already having an HNC qualification and two years for students with two A levels.

All HNDs and Foundation Degrees will focus on core engineering concepts including:

  • Project management,
  • Engineering science,
  • Engineering principles,
  • Thermo fluids,
  • Thermodynamics.

A high focus of the delivery is on employer engagement and the use of IT within the industry. All students are required to complete an engineering project in their final year.

Entry Requirements

An appropriate HNC certificate in Mechanical Engineering for the one year HND course.

  • An A/AS Level profile including Mathematics with a minimum of 120 CAT points or an Access to Higher Education or Bridging Certificate in Engineering for the two year HND course.

Students who have an appropriate trade qualification (City & Guilds/EMTA) at Level 2 or 3 would need to complete a bridging course (see BTEC Advanced Diploma in Engineering Principles) before proceeding to the 2 year HND course.

International students will be required to show evidence of their English proficiency (minimum IELTS banding of 6.5 or equivalent).

Where will it take me?

A top-up option is available to progress from an HND to B.Eng Engineering.

You can work in any heavy industry involved in Mechanical Engineering such as railways, BAE Systems, motor vehicle manufacturing and design, electrical power generating companies etc.

Course Assessment Method

You will be assessed by coursework, assignments, practical investigations, phase tests and end of unit examinations.

Course components include:

  • Analytical and further analytic methods,
  • Project design, implementation and evaluation,
  • Electrical and electronic principles,
  • Engineering science,
  • Mechanical principles.
