HND General Engineering is to the latest fully accredited RQF standard and focuses on the education and training of engineers/technicians who are employed at a professional level in a variety of types of technical work, such as in systems design, manufacture, maintenance and technical services areas of the mechanical, electronic and electrical engineering industries. Further, with the increasing importance of climate change and its impact on engineers, a unit discussing this topic has been included on all courses. It also provides:

  • opportunities to achieve a nationally recognised level 5 technical qualification
  • opportunities for progress to higher education vocational qualifications, such as a full- or part time degree in engineering
  • opportunities for learners to focus on the development of the higher level skills in a technological and management context
