Cost: £2000 + VAT
Level: 5
Duration: 1 year
Description:

Delivering high level, industry-led training courses is what we do. As an engineering provider of advanced technical and academic skills, we work closely with employers to nurture and develop the employees they need for the future.

We provide employees with more than just a qualification. We develop both their industry skills and knowledge for immediate application in the workplace which maximises return on investment.

Our 1 year top up course allows progression from HNC to HND

Entry requirements:

Our one year top up from HNC to HND is obtained by studying a further six units at Level 5.

Where will I study:

Training 2000 Blackburn

Aim:

1. ENGINEERING THERMODYNAMICS
This unit will extend learners’ knowledge of heat and work transfer. It will develop learners’ understanding of the principles and laws of thermodynamics and their application to engineering thermodynamic systems.

2. DESIGN FOR MANUFACTURE
This unit will develop learners’ understanding of the processes involved in analysing a product design and preparing for its manufacture.

3. PERSONAL & PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
This unit aims to help the learner become an effective and confident self-directed employee. This helps the learner become confident in managing own personal and professional skills to achieve personal and career goals.

To develop learners’ skills of independent enquiry and critical analysis by undertaking a sustained research investigation of direct relevance to their Higher Education programme and professional development.

5. FURTHER ANALYTICAL METHODS FOR ENGINEERS
This unit aims to further develop the analytical knowledge and techniques necessary to analyse and solve a variety of engineering situations and problems

 

Depending on previous units achieved either:

6. ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC PRINCIPLES
This unit provides an understanding of electrical and electronic principles used in a range of engineering careers and provides the basis for further study of more specialist areas of electrical/electronic engineering

6. MECHANICAL PRINCIPLES
This unit aims to develop learners’ understanding of an extended range of mechanical principles that underpin the design and operation of mechanical engineering systems.

Method of delivery
  • Delivery which minimises the impact of training during your working hours
  • Training available at our Blackburn site which has industry-leading learning environments
Who is this for

The HND is for learners who want to progress from a HNC.
