Is this the right course for me?

If you work in the engineering industry and want to extend your mechanical and electrical knowledge this short part-time module (part of the BTEc HNC/D in Engineering) will give you an understanding of the principles that underpin mechanical and electrically focussed engineering systems.

We have a state-of-the-art modern engineering workshop equipped with a range of industry-standard equipment including millers, lathes, CNC tooling and laser cutters, along with fabrication and welding equipment such as Tig, Mig and Arc welders and CAD suites.

What will I learn?

During this course you will learn how to:

  • Determine the behavioural characteristics of elements of static engineering systems
  • Determine the behavioural characteristics of elements of dynamic engineering systems
  • Apply DC theory to solve electrical and electronic engineering problems
  • Apply single phase AC theory to solve electrical and electronic engineering problems

What skills will I gain?

By doing this course you will:

  • Study elements of engine statics including the analysis of beams, columns and shafts.
  • Be introduced to elements of engineering dynamics
  • Refreshing your understanding of resistors
  • Gain an understanding of Ohm’s law and Kirchhoff’s law to solve problems
  • Develop your understanding of the characteristics of various AC circuits

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
