Higher National Certificate…

Earn – Learn – Succeed

A Higher National Certificate (HNC) is a Level 4 Higher Education Qualification; the attainment level of this course is expected to be the equivalent to one year of university (subject to universities’ own code of standards) and a Certificate in Higher Education.

Learners who achieve this can go on to specialise in a BTEC Level 5 Higher National Diploma (HND).

Mode of Study:

  • We offer two modes of attendance; 1 day a week or 2 nights a week for 2 years.
  • Home 60% / College 40%
  • This is a big commitment and requires lots of self-study in your own time.
  • The minimum attendance required for each unit is 95%
  • Holidays should be taken out of term time

Assessment Methods:

  • There will be a combination of open book invigilated tests and assignments. All assignments are uploaded to ‘Turn It In’ and are expected to meet set deadlines.

We offer two HNC routes at The Engineering College:

  • Mechanical Engineering

    • Analytical Methods for Engineers
    • Engineering Science
    • Project Design, Implementation and Evaluation
    • Mechanical Principles
    • Materials Engineering
    • Health, Safety and Risk Assessment

Entry Requirements and Assessments

You will be assessed on :

  • Algebraic and graphical techniques
  • Trigonometric and mensuration techniques
  • Statistical methods to display and analyse engineering data
  • Calculus to analyse and solve engineering problems

This will be a basic assessment and will identify your startning point. It may be decided that you will need to undergo a bridging course before entry onto HNC. The Bridging Course is a C&G unit in advanced maths and science. If you attain a Pass in this unit, this will meet the minimum requirements for HNC.
