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: * Engineering Design
  • Advanced CAD
  • Mechanical Principles
  • Applications of Hydraulics and Pneumatics
  • Thermodynamics
  • Manufacturing Processes

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 Mechanical 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.
