This is a Teesside University award is delivered in partnership with your chosen college. The course is for learners who would like to work as technicians or technician engineers in electrical and electronics design, manufacture, maintenance, testing or fault finding.
It has been developed in consultation with local industry and combines theory and practical work with a focus on industrial applications.
Starting salaries for graduate electrical/electronics engineers can be as high as £29,000, increasing to £65,000+ when a senior level is reached (prospects.ac.uk, 2015).
What you study
You study eight modules covering the needs of local and national industries and business.
The HNC provides a sound understanding of all key principles and includes core modules in Electrical Principles, Analytical Methods, Engineering Science and a project. Further specialist subjects may include Programmable Logic, Controllers and Electronics.
How you learn
The course is delivered through practical sessions, lectures and tutorials. You are required to complement your college-based learning with self-study.
How you are assessed
Assessment is by a range of integrated assignments, case studies, projects and tests which are planned throughout the year.
An HNC award opens up the possibility of a career in a wide range of engineering disciplines including design, manufacturing, project management and IT. The qualification provides you with the opportunity to seek career development into senior positions in national and international companies. Alternatively, you may seek further study to HND, degree level and beyond.
You need an appropriate technician or craft qualification at Level 3 or similar, and a good standard of literacy and numeracy skills.
