HNC Electrical & Electronic Engineering Parttime

The course is aimed primarily at technician engineers who are currently employed or seeking employment in the mechanical manufacturing or engineering industries. Students will cover core modules in science for engineering and project/design implementation, as well as specialist units in power electronics and electrical principals.


About the Course

Pearson Edexcel BTEC Higher Nationals are designed to provide a specialist vocational programme, linked to professional body requirements and National Occupational Standards where appropriate. The development of this qualification was informed by discussions/relevant publications from the Engineering Council UK (EC[UK]) and the Science, Engineering and Manufacturing Technologies Alliance (SEMTA).


They offer a strong, sector-related emphasis on practical skills development alongside the development of requisite knowledge and understanding. The qualifications provide a thorough grounding in the key concepts and practical skills required in their sector and their national recognition by employers allows direct progression to employment. 

Mode of Attendance
Part-time over 24 months. Students will usually spend one full day in college each week (8.30am - 6pm) and are expected to undertake self-directed study for 2-3 hours per week to complete assignments.

Teaching & Learning
Lessons are of a theoretical nature, however some sessions will have practical content that can be delivered in technical labs.

Teaching Staff
The majority of the teaching team have worked in the electrical industry and have a minimum of 15-20 years experience in this field. Moreover, teaching staff hold both electrical and teaching qualifications.
