The HND in Electrical and Electronic Engineering course is for those who are employed or seeking employment at technician or engineer level in electrical or electronic engineering environment. This course offers a broad range of skills and insight, in preparation for a career in the electrical or electronic engineering industry. By studying Electrical and Electronic Engineering you can choose from a range of units that will allow you to tailor your studies towards electronics or electrical power, or a combination of the two.
Using electricity to process and store the information behind technology such as mobile phones and computers, as well as a huge range of systems in commerce and industry, is the principle that underlies electrical /electronic engineering. Both depend on the same fundamental scientific laws, but diverge widely beyond these starting points. As technology progresses, we become more reliant on electrical and electronic systems to control mechanical devises and as such the opportunities for employment in this sector have increased. The Higher National Diploma (HND) Programme in Electrical and Electronic Engineering is strongly vocational and forms a solid basis in Electrical and Electronic Engineering fundamentals. It aims to produce high quality, creative technicians and engineers. Higher National Diploma qualifications are widely welcomed by the employers, recognised by many international professional bodies and having access to UK and other universities to enter into the second or final year of a honours degree in Electrical/Electronic/Computer Engineering.
The course is for those who want to build up their engineering skills and work towards becoming a professional engineer. The course will develop skills and knowledge that will allow you to bring together engineering elements in project based assignments related to the needs of the engineering sector. The Higher National Diploma Electrical and Electronic Engineering provides you with a programme of study over a range of disciplines to help you develop skills to progress your career through employment or further education at degree level. The course will teach you core engineering principles and demonstrate how the knowledge you gain can be used effectively in the workplace. The programme has been developed in consultation with local industry, and combines theory and practical work a focus on industrial applications.
Course Length: 2 years;
Start dates: February / July / October
