It covers the fundamental scientific principles and then applies these to creating systems, services and products. The course is designed to enhance the career prospects for those employed in mechanical, manufacturing or operational engineering. It’s a natural progression from the BTEC National Certificate/Diploma/Level 3 qualifications and could lead to a career as a senior technician or junior engineer within the industry.

Modules include CAD/CAM, engineering design and a study of materials, fluid mechanics, and materials engineering. Students who have successfully completed the HNC may progress onto the HND top-up course which takes a further 18 months to complete.

The cost of studying for an HNC on a part time basis through us is more favourable than studying at a University and you are able to fund your qualification through the Student Loan Company…
