Summary

This course is for individuals wishing to develop higher-level professional skills relevant to the electrical and electronic engineering sectors.
The programme team uses a combination of traditional classroom teaching, open learning and research-based experiential learning, laboratory experiments and demonstrations, industry standard IT applications and group activities.
The course comprises mandatory and optional units.
The mandatory units are:
Research Project
Professional Engineering Management
Further Mathematics
Commercial Programming Software*
Embedded Systems
Students will complete additional modules selected by the course team; these are:
Industrial Power, Electronics and Storage
Further Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs)

*Subject to demand, this unit could potentially be substituted with a unit called “Industrial Systems”, which would automatically change the qualification title to BTEC HND in Engineering (Electrical and Electronic Engineering) Top-Up

If you have any specific questions about this course, please contact Dr Dennis Fitzpatrick - Course Leader HND Embedded Electronic Systems, email: dennis.fitzpatrick@ccn.ac.uk

Why our College?

Flexible study options

Most of our courses require two days per week attendance at college. This means you can continue to work alongside your studies and balance other commitments.

Smaller class sizes

Our smaller class sizes mean you get all the support you need during your studies. This is a crucial difference to larger universities and provides you with access to your lecturers when you need them.

Outstanding progression

97% of our full time graduates and 100% of our part time graduates are in employment or further study 6 months after completing their degree (Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes, 2019, for CCN, published by Office for Students)

Entry Requirements

Applicants should have BTEC Level 4 in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.

The HND qualifications offered from September 2017 are new versions introduced by BTEC. As a result, anyone wanting to accredit prior learning is advised to discuss this at interview.

Applications from students whose first language is not English are welcome. For International students we require evidence of proficiency in English (including writing, speaking, listening and reading), the required minimum is: Academic IELTS (SELT) 6.0 overall (minimum 5.5 in all components). Please contact the Advice shop for advice and guidance. International candidates are also actively encouraged to access the International Students webpage

Assessment

The programme is assessed by a mixture of assessments for example assignments and project work.

Progression

The BTEC (Edexcel) HND programme is widely recognised by employers and professional bodies. Students may wish to undertake further study at level 6.

Career Progression

The course will equip you with the skills and knowledge needed for a variety of interesting and rewarding careers in engineering.
