What is the HN Engineering Bridging/Access Course?
HN Engineering Bridging/Access course is a technical level qualification which will help the learner to move up to the HNC Engineering qualification. It will give the learner an excellent foundation at technician level.
You will need to get an average grade of Merit to be eligible for entry onto the HNC.
What does the course consist of?
The HN Engineering Bridging/Access course is delivered via our Learning Management System online, so is available 24/7. Assessment is through our e-portfolio, which is where you upload your assignments to. We have a wealth of experience within the team to support you through your studies. Here are the units we have to offer in Engineering.
Foundation Award in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (603/5840/3 )
AME U001 – Health & Safety in the Engineering Workplace
AME U003 – Mathematics for Engineering Technicians
AME U008 – Mechanical Principles of Engineering Systems
Plus 3 additional units:
AME U006 – Further Mathematics for Engineering Technicians
AME U056 – Electrical & Electronic Principles
AME U033 – Further Electrical Principles
AME U055 – Further Mechanical Principles
How long will the course take?
Learners have up to 12 months to complete the course from enrolment. The rule of thumb is that you can achieve 120 credits per “academic” year (36 weeks), whilst studying full time. Most part time students can achieve 60 credits a year whilst juggling family, social life and work.
So it is really up to you. You can however study more than one unit at a time, such as U001 and U002, but U004 needs to be done before U005 or U006. U028 can’t be started until U004 is complete. However after the 12 months is up, you will need to renew for any units you have not completed, at the individual unit price.
Who is this Course for?
For those who may have changed discipline, such as IT or Business, who would like to start a career in Engineering.
All units can be used for larger qualifications , or onwards as entry to Higher Education, such as the HNC in Engineering
