HNC in Manufacturing Engineering (Parttime)

The course is aimed primarily at technician engineers who are currently employed or seeking employment in the mechanical manufacturing or engineering industries.


About the Course

The BTEC Level 4 HNC in Manufacturing Engineering is a two year part-time course. It is aimed at students who have already gained a Level 3 qualification in Manufacturing Engineering.


HNC’s consist of mandatory core units and specialist units. The specialist units are designed to provide a specific focus to the qualification. These specialist vocational qualifications teach learners the key concepts and practical skills for direct progression to, or within, 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
