Description

General Engineering HNC Overview

A Higher National Certificate is the first level of Higher Education (Level 4). Completion of this course will allow for progression on to a Higher National Diploma (Level 5) and potentially a Full Degree programme. In addition, completion of a General Engineering HNC provides evidence that you have developed the fundamental knowledge and skills that would be required to perform the key duties of a Multi-skilled Engineer in industry.

Our General Engineering HNC programme is available with full Online Delivery and Assessment. This is a Distance Learning programme, but not in the traditional sense. Our resources consist of Bite-size instructional videos and interactive practice questions. In addition, all of our Assessments can be completed and assessed entirely Online.

Studying by Distance Learning can be a challenge. Completing an HNC with us will be a real testament to your personal motivation, organisational skills, perseverance and persistence. These are additional personality traits and transferable skills that are highly desired in the Engineering sector.

Entry Requirements for our HNC in General Engineering

Although the Awarding Body for our General Engineering HNC does not specify formal entry requirements, it is the responsibility of centres delivering the qualifications to ensure that students have a reasonable likelihood of success on the programme.

Individuals from a range of different backgrounds express an interest in General Engineering programmes. Some have academic qualifications, but no formal experience, whilst others have worked in Engineering for many years, but have not completed relevant academic qualifications.

Secondly, studying via Distance Learning (particularly Online) can differ greatly from traditional study.

For these reasons, we ask that all applicants complete relevant Bridging Courses prior to enrolment. Our Bridging Courses are designed to enable the development of analytical, problem-solving skills that are required when studying Higher Education programmes in Engineering. Participation and completion of these Bridging Courses will provide some assurance that students enrolling on to our HNC courses will be willing and capable of engaging with their course materials and our Study Platform.

To enrol on to our General Engineering HNC you should complete the following Bridging Courses:

These courses can be ordered as a discounted bundle below:

Upon completion of each course you will receive a certificate. Achieving a certificate in each of the Bridging Courses above will entitle you to enrol on to our General Engineering HNC Programme.

    I moved my distance learning to the engineering academy about a year ago and have been working my way through the HNC course. I have found the video tutorials to be a massive help. With my old course there was only literature to read, having the videos explain what is being worked out or the processes that are undertaken to achieve a goal has been such a great help. Whenever I have struggled to understand content, the engineering academy have been quick with their response to my questions, explaining what I didn’t understand and confirming where I was right or how I had made a mistake. I can’t fault the help and the content i am receiving from this course.

    I have been doing my HNC through Engineers Academy since January 2019. My Job doesn’t suit conventional learning at a college so having it all online based is great and I can do it when I have the time. I have found the course to be very good and the support I have received has been amazing, the tutors at EA have always helped me out, explaining where I have gone wrong and helped me understand the correct way. The format is excellent and the videos are really good at explaining the subjects, then the questions are very well written and give instant feedback. When I have done the assessments, they have been marked within 2 days and sent back every time with written feedback. The course material is really interesting and shown in a way that can be easily understood. I can’t recommend this course and Engineers Academy enough.
