BTEC Level 4 HNC Diploma in Mechanical Engineering

The HNC course is designed to provide the knowledge and understanding of how advanced and innovative engineering underpins the mechanical industries.

Candidates applying for this course will need a relevant Level 3 qualification, which would usually be a BTEC National in Engineering or equivalent. Mature learners may present a more varied profile of previous achievement that may include substantial work experience within the engineering environment.

Year One Units: 

  • Analytical Methods for Engineers
  • Engineering Science
  • Project Design, Implementation and Evaluation
  • Design Engineering

Year Two Units: 

  • Mechanical Principles
  • Materials Engineering
  • Applications of Pneumatics and Hydraulics
  • Advanced Computer Aided Drawing Techniques

The subject areas are assessed in a variety of ways including assignments, timed assessments and coursework.

From 2017 onwards, the HNC classes will include the ILM Level 2 Certificate in Leadership and Team Member Skills qualification that is aimed at improving the skills of the students when working in and amongst teams.
