Description

What is an HNC?

 

The HNC in Engineering is for those students who already have a grasp of engineering concepts and have possibly already worked at technician level. The HNC is designed to give you a higher level of knowledge which could allow you to step up the career ladder or count towards a full degree. 

 

Who is the Course aimed at?

 

The BTEC Level 4 HNC Engineering – Mechanical is for those who would like CPD credits, or start a Higher Education. It can lead to an HND (240 Cr). It could also count towards a full Bachelors degree as more and more Universities accept HNC’s as the 1st year and HND as the 1st and 2nd year.

 

This course is ideal if you are unable to attend a college or university, due to work or family commitments. If you are looking to further your career or you need the qualifications for a promotion or career change, this course deals with materials around Engineering.

 

What are the entry requirements?

 

A level 3 qualification, such as BTEC Diploma in Engineering or A levels, however if you don’t have these but do have experience in the workplace, then contact us and we can discuss your needs. Typically 32 UCAS points are needed.
