Course summary

THE COURSE

The aim of this HNC Engineering qualification is to allow students to develop into professional, self-reflecting individuals who are able to meet the demands of employers in the rapidly evolving engineering sector and adapt to a constantly changing world.

The qualification aims to widen access to higher education and enhance the career prospects of those who undertake them.

LEARNING AND TEACHING APPROACH

For all modules, theory lectures are delivered that aim to facilitate the core content and provide the underpinning knowledge. To complement the theory lectures, students have group seminars / practical sessions that are used to reinforce concepts delivered theoretically. The focus of the teaching approach is to give a model that can be applied in the work place, putting theory into practice and vice versa. The teaching methods focus on facilitating a student centred approach to enhance the independent learning that takes place outside of the classroom. You can choose to study at either our Bishop Burton campus, in East Yorkshire, or our Riseholme campus, in Lincolnshire.

HOW YOU'RE ASSESSED

Assessment methods include case studies, presentations, real life management problems, problem-based scenarios and reflective assignments. Opportunities for feedback on assessments are available prior to the final submission to support student development and achievement. Staff aim to return assessed work within a 15 working day timeframe (not including holidays) in order that students can most benefit from the feedback.

PROGRESSION

On successful completion of this HNC, you will be able to progress on to a Higher National Diploma (HND), or on to the second year of a degree, such as our FdSc in Agriculture (Precision Crop Technology).

CAREERS

On completion, students will be able to go into wide and varied job roles, such as land-based machinery technicians, mechanical engineering technicians, land-based machinery sales representatives or land-based machinery demonstrators.
