Professional engineers are at the forefront of developing new ideas in an ever changing world and are highly valued within industry. They form the backbone of research and development in their respective fields.
Level 4 HNCs provide a nationally recognised qualification offering career progression and professional development for those already in employment as well as opportunities for students to progress into Higher Education.
The course will take two years of part-time study to complete. It will provide the knowledge and practical skills relevant to the Mechanical Engineering Industry. This course is awarded by Pearson.
The course will take place at the Main Site at Kendal College and will start in September 2017.
There is an option to complete modules part-time rather than the full qualification.
Generally, you will only get student finance if you’re doing your first higher education qualification. This is true even if your previous course was self-funded.
Whether you qualify for student finance depends on certain criteria, please see www.gov.uk/student-finance and our college ‘Student Money’ pages: www.kendal.ac.uk/studentmoney.
Topics will include the following mandatory modules:
- Analytical Methods for Engineers
- Engineering Science
- Project Design, Implementation and Evaluation
Optional modules will also include:
- Health, Safety and Risk Assessment in Engineering
- Energy Management
- Further Mathematics for Engineering Technicians
- Fluid Mechanics
- Advanced Computer-aided Design Techniques
The units will be assessed by a series of written and practical assignments. There are no formal examinations.
The awarding body for the HNC is Pearson (Edexcel).
Learners who achieve a HNC qualification typically move into supervisory and management roles within a company.
