Is this the right course for me?

If you work in the electrical and/or electronic engineering industry and need to learn how to design and build or modify electronic circuits using combinational and sequential logic, this short part-time course – a module from the HNC/D in engineering syllabus – will give you the skills and knowledge you require.

What will I learn?

Studying this module will enable you to:

  • Design and build or modify circuits using combinational logic
  • Design and build or modify circuits using sequential logic
  • Design and evaluate a digital system

What skills will I gain?

Throughout the course you will:

  • Gain an understanding of digital techniques and the practical applications of both combinational and sequential logic
  • Investigate the characteristics and applications of combinational and sequential logic devices
  • Learn how to recognise the components, and find appropriate information to utilise them
  • Design, construct and test combinational and sequential circuits using a variety of construction materials, and test equipment
  • Use relevant computer software to simulate and verify circuits
  • Design a digital system and evaluate it against given criteria
  • Investigate the minimisation of digital circuits to improve efficiency
  • Improve the digital system design through the use of programmable logic devices (PLDs)
  • How will I be assessed?

  • This is an assignment-based course and there are no exams.
  • You will be continually assessed throughout the course via assignments and the production of a detailed portfolio

What can I do next?

Completion of the module will enable you to:

  • Use the skills you have gained in the workplace
  • Continue with further study and progress to the HNC/D in engineering
  • What are the Entry Requirements?

    As this module is part of an HNC/D qualification, you are required to be over 18 years of age and have the following qualifications:

    • Two A Levels – preferably in maths or science OR
    • BTec certificate or diploma in engineering or a related discipline

    - Mature students will be considered in light of relevant work/life experience

    - Non-EU students are required to have an IELTS or equivalent university qualification
