This part-time HNC course is designed to meet the needs of individuals who are currently employed full-time in the engineering sector. If you are unable to attend college on a day release basis, but are keen to upskill to further your career in engineering, then this course is ideal for you.
The Level 4 HNC in General engineering has been designed to accommodate individuals from all aspects of engineering and hence, is not biased towards mechanical or electrical engineers. As a result, you will receive a broad grounding and education in a range of engineering subjects incorporating the study units below.
|4||Managing a Professional Engineering Project||15||4||M|
|13||Fundamentals of Thermodynamics and Heat Engines||15||4||S|
|19||Electrical and Electronic Principles||15||4||S|
|22||Electronic Circuits and Devices||15||4||S|
