Higher National Engineering awards are designed to provide students with engineering knowledge and understanding appropriate to their engineering interests, employment and vocational needs.

The Higher National Engineering awards are designed to provide each student with engineering knowledge and understanding appropriate to their engineering interests, employment and vocational needs.

The Higher National Certificate is a part-time course that progresses students who have achieved Level 3 qualifications to develop their personal effectiveness and employability, in particular their ability to learn, to communicate, to work with others and to solve engineering problems.

It is possible to study this course as an apprentice. If you already work for an employer who wants to sponsor your apprenticeship, then you need to ask them to call our Employer Services Team on 0300 456 0046 or email [email protected] to ensure that the relevant paperwork is completed.

Modules

To achieve the new Higher National Certificate (RQF) you will be required to complete a selection of modules which amount to 120 credits.

There are both core and specialist units on this course:

Core units:

Engineering Design
Engineering Maths
Engineering Science
Pearson Set Project

Specialist units:

Engineering Management
Production Engineering for Manufacture
Quality and Process Improvement
CAD and CAM
Specialist units for each cohort may vary in accordance with employer/Managing Agents requirements and will be determined prior to the course commencing.

Assessment methods

A wide range of assessment methods and equipment appropriate to the learning outcomes and assessment criteria will be used, and will consider the practices used within the engineering sector.

Whilst credit is awarded at a threshold level of achievement only, grading arrangements will apply to individual units which will allow for the reward of merit and distinction achievement according to Edexcel's published grading domains and criteria.

Provision will be made for all engineering Higher National students to be eligible for grades beyond a pass level.

Assessment is considered an important part of the learning process. In designing the forms of assessment for this award, care has been taken to ensure that all assessments test the skills and knowledge needed in the Engineering working environment. Formative and summative assessment methods are diverse and include problem based assignments, work-based projects requiring oral and written reports, individual exercises experimental work, work-based assignments and phased tests.

This information comes from the National Student Survey, an annual student survey of final-year students. You can use this to see how satisfied students studying this subject area at this university, are (not the individual course).

This is the percentage of final-year students at this university who were "definitely" or "mostly" satisfied with their course. We've analysed this figure against other universities so you can see whether this is high, medium or low.

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?
