Engineering is a dynamic and diverse field that offers numerous exciting career opportunities.

The emphasis throughout the course is student focussed, task orientated and learning with plenty of scope for practical assignment work. Wherever possible the major individual projects, which are carried out in the second year, are to be industrially based with full involvement of industrial supervisors. 

This is a well-established, two / three year, part-time course, (following a HND or HNC) that provides a thorough grounding in all aspects of electrical and electronic engineering and combines the hardware and software subject areas demanded by the industry. Graduates will be prepared for practice as incorporated engineers and the award will provide the learners with a sound basis for continuing education. This award is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). 

Programme Features
  • To develop the ability to evaluate designs, process and products and make improvements.
  • To establish the relevance of engineering to solve real world problems using scientific knowledge
  • Course incorporates health and safety, environmental issues and sustainability
  • To develop the learner's ability to see the inter-relationship between theory and practice and to maintain a sound theoretical approach in enabling the introduction of new and advancing technology to enhance current practice.
  • To develop the learner's ability to communicate effectively with clients, customers and colleagues, using written, oral and graphical methods.
  • To develop a self-disciplined and self-motivated attitude in pursuit of their studies.
  • To develop the learner's ability to be able to select suitable materials, components and assembly techniques for a particular product.
  • To develop in the learner the ability to plan and execute a project within time and cost constraints, taking into account the health and safety issues.
  • To develop the ability to evaluate designs, processes and products and make improvements.
  • To develop in the learner a professional attitude towards matters such as design, reliability and maintenance of equipment, product quality and value, marketing and safety.
Programme content

Example units include:

  • Year 1 modules : Control Engineering, Power and Machines, Signals and Digital Communications, Virtual Instrumentation and Control Systems, Networking Systems for Engineers.
  • Year 2 modules : Electronic Design, Power Electronics and Drives, Electronic Production and Test.
  • Year 3 modules : Engineering Management and Major Project.
  • HND students who have covered the year 1 modules will be allowed direct entry into year 2.
Progression and employment

Successful candidates will be able to perform technical duties in posts demanding a detailed understanding of electrical and electronic engineering. They should be able to design, develop, manufacture, maintain and manage applications of current and developing technology at a high level. They will be prepared for practice as incorporated engineers and will also have the required knowledge and skills for continuing education.

Method of assessment

Examination and up to four pieces of coursework for non-project modules. Oral presentation and project report for the project module.

Entry requirements

HNC Electrical/Electronic Engineering
