The HNC Manufacturing Engineering has been specifically designed for those who wish to work at a more senior level in an engineering environment, or those who are already working in such roles but are looking to support their practical experience with the theory provided on a nationally recognised qualification. The course will develop the skills needed for a wide range of engineering careers and also provides the opportunity, upon successful completion, for students to progress onto further study at a higher level.

Course in-depth

What will I study?

All students successfully completing the HNC will receive a qualification that reflects both their theoretical and practical knowledge in the specific field of Manufacturing Engineering. With this in mind, the qualification requires students to successfully complete three core modules:

  • Project Design, Implementation and Evaluation
  • Analytical Methods for Engineers
  • Engineering Science Students are also required to complete a range of optional units, which may include: * Manufacturing Processes
  • Manufacturing Planning and Scheduling
  • Principle Engineering Design
  • Business Management
  • Techniques Advanced CAD
  • Techniques Statistical Process Control

How will I study?

Students are required to attend over a two year period for one extended day per week, typically 9.00am to 8.00pm. The course will be delivered at the newly refurbished STEM Centre, Technology Campus, a purpose built campus that has recently received significant investment.

How will I be assessed?

All units on the HNC Manufacturing Engineering are assessed by a combination of assignments, including phase tests, laboratory work, classwork, case studies, seminar presentations, practical work and formal end of session written examinations.
