Our HND Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering course is a two year full-time qualification that will give you a broad understanding of mechanical and manufacturing principles. This course is perfect if are looking to continue your education at a higher level, with the aim of employment afterwards.

The first year is delivered alongside the Electrical & Electronic Engineering course, where our expert tutors will provide you with strong, sector-related content and an emphasis on practical skills to help you expand your existing knowledge of engineering. You will focus on mathematics, modern design, and manufacturing techniques, as well as electrical principles to give you a broad understanding of all industrial needs.

Specialisms will take place in the second year where you will have the opportunity to hone your skills in manufacturing disciplines. By the end of the course you will have developed a good mix of practical and employability skills to further your career or progress onto a top-up degree.

You can undertake this course full-time over two years to include an HNC qualification in the first year. If you already have an HNC, you can join the second year to study full-time for your HND, or study part-time for the HND over two years.

Modules

Building on the skills and techniques you have gained from previous study and your experience, you will be introduced to advanced techniques such as, Computer Aided Design Engineering, Instrumentation and Control, and Testing to give you an understanding of why this is so important in the engineering world. This course will give you a broad mix of units, so you are able to experience a wide range of engineering challenges to learn from. Units include:
* Analytical methods for engineers
* Engineering science
* Instrumentation and control
* Business management techniques
* Materials
* Mechanical principles
* Advanced CAD techniques
* Project design, implementation and evaluation

This information is from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), for undergraduate students only.

You can use this to get an idea of who you might share a lecture with and how they progressed in this subject, here. It's also worth comparing typical A-level subjects and grades students achieved with the current course entry requirements; similarities or differences here could indicate how flexible (or not) a university might be.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
