HND Engineering (Mechanical)

The Higher National Certificate in Mechanical Engineering covers the fundamental concepts, principles and theories of engineering, analysis and design, practical and technical skills, and transferable business skills relevant to engineering. This programme is flexibly structured and provides a practical and academic challenge within the framework of current industrial practices in engineering.

Normally studied over a 2 year period (part-time), these programmes can also be studied over 3 years (part-time). This model enables students to grasp the scientific and mathematical aspects of the programme in the first year.

Year 1

– Engineering Maths
– Engineering Science
– Engineering Design
– Mechanical Principles
– Automation, Robotics and PLCs

Year 2

– Managing a Professional Engineering Project (Pearson-set)
– Materials, Properties and Testing
– Lean Manufacturing
– Thermodynamics and Heat Engines
– Advanced Mechanical Principles

Year 3

– Research Project
– Professional Engineering Management
– Further Mathematics
– Virtual Engineering
– Thermofluids

You will normally be required to have achieved the BTEC National Certificate or Diploma or A level or NVQ/VRQ level 3 qualification in a relevant subject area. If you hold significant practical experience or craft qualifications but not the usual Level 3 entry requirement, your application would also be considered.

You could progress onto a degree programme at a university.
