This course is a general Higher National Diploma however there is an option to focus on either electrical or mechanical.
You will learn using a range of industry standard equipment to make sure that you can perfect the techniques you need and understand the technical knowledge appropriate to this level of higher education.
The course is also intended to support progression to local or national university degree programmes (check locally with university of application).
Modules on this course include:
You will need an HNC in a relevant engineering subject, both QCF and RQF qualifications are accepted.
You will also need to attend an informal interview with the course tutor.
As this is a BTEC qualification, there will only be assessments – no exams.
Each unit contains around four assessments.
On completion of the HND, you will be able to progress to an engineering related degree or to employment as a graduate/trainee engineer.
Covid-19 has challenged the delivery of academic programmes but here at TyneMet College, we have been busy working on an effective approach to your programme of study, blending face-to-face and online teaching.
Our experience has shown that this method opens new learning opportunities for all, enabling you to develop graduate skills such as time management, self-care and workload prioritisation, with support from our academic team and the wider College and University services available to you.
