HNC in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Electrical and Electronic Engineering is all about designing, developing and maintaining electrical & electronic systems, equipment and controls across a wide range businesses and industry.

Working within BTEC rules, we constantly review our mix of units to ensure these meet the changing needs of engineers.  For example the increasing demand and importance of climate change, we now offer a range of units that cover renewable energy, sustainability,  power electronics  and energy conservation

Learners will learn will also be able to develop theory into practice through the use of a wide range of software modelling and simulation:
Software used includes: Yenka, Multisim, Siemens PLC LOGO, MPLAB, Simulide, Inventor/Fusion 360, Scilab, Xcos, and RoboDK

This 8 unit course offers a balanced programme of engineering principles, design and applications within mechanical field. You can find out more about the content of this HNC by clicking on the units below:

  1. Engineering Design (Unit H1)
  2. Engineering Maths (Unit H2)
  3. Engineering Science (Unit H3))
  4. Managing a Professional Engineering Project (Unit H4)
  5. Renewable Energy (Unit H5)
  6. Electrical and Electronic Principles (Unit H19) ^

Plus two more units*:

 *Default modules will be H16 and H31 unles different preferences is expressed on enrolment form or during Skype call –

Each unit is further split into bite sized topics to make studying easier via our online Moodle education platform. You will be have 2 assessments for each unit. The above prices include the Edexcel BTEC registration fee, but some units may require some equipment / materials (check individual units) for practical exercises

Entry Qualifications

Should be one of the following:

  • BTEC Level-3 Eng. 6 unit (Merit)
  • BTEC Level-3 Eng. 9 unit  (Pass)
  • BTEC Level-3 Eng. 3 unit  and 1 A/AS level
  • NVQ Level-3 Eng. and Level-3 bridging units (see below)
  • Appropriate STEM A/AS levels or equivalent

Normally we require at least 32 UCAS points. Students must also be a UK resident and non-native English should have a relevant qualification.

HNC Bridging Units

If you partially meet the level 3 requirements by having some existing level 3 qualifications or higher; level-3 bridging units  for HNC will be required as part of your HNC programme.

Level-3 bridging units are included in HNC courses if required at no extra cost, and are:

  • L3 Bridging Maths unit L3E-B1
  • L3 Bridging Mechanical Principles unit L3E-B2
  • L3 Electrical & Electronic Principles unit L3E-B3

** We will contact you with direct debit arrangements

^ Note: It looks like a new company (Emerson) has bought National Instruments (Multisim) over and have further restricted the number of components they offer free to only 5. As you will want to do more with Multisim-live then you will need to pay them (approx £2.50/mth or £25/yr). However there is a free 45 day trial (which might cover your EEP study period) for the laptop version,  Alternative circuit simulation softwares are Tinkercad and Yenka.
