About the course

As technology progresses, we become more reliant on electrical and electronic systems to control mechanical devices and as such the opportunities for employment in this sector have increased. This full time Higher National Diploma (HND) fully prepares learners for progression on to a degree whilst also enhancing their profile for a range of successful careers in engineering. Learners enrolling on this could often already have some experience in the industry and wish to progress their career, but experience of Electrical Engineering isn't essential. Full-time students will be encouraged to participate in work experience schemes in order to cement theoretical teaching into practical application; this will enhance career opportunities on completion of the course.

Modules

Modules studied on this course include: Year 1: Analytical Methods - providing an appreciation of the role of mathematics in technology and also the necessary basis to enable the student to use mathematics in other components of the course. Engineering Science - students will investigate the scientific principles associated with the design and operation of static and dynamic engineering systems. Digital and Analogue Devices - introduces the student to analogue and digital electronic concepts. Electrical Power Technology - provides students with knowledge and an understanding of electrical quantities in single phase and three-phase circuits. Electronics - introduces the student to the concept of modern electronic systems. Electronics and Instrumentation - To introduce the fundamentals of electronics in the context of instrumentation and control systems. Year 2: Operations Management - enables the student to develop the skills and knowledge required to participate in an operations management team. PLCs - an introduction to programmable logic controller concepts and their application in engineering. C and S Logic - introduces the student to complex applications of both combinational and sequential logic systems. Project - develops an understanding of the inter relationships between the more formal disciplines in other external units in a programme of study. Electrical and Electronic Principles - student will investigate and calculate circuit responses across a range of techniques. Software Development C++ - students will learn how to design computer software and write programs in the C++ language. They will gain the ability to analyse a given problem and to design a logical solution.

Assessment

Assessments take place throughout the year, and are typically in the form written essay-style assignments and exams. The use of seminar-produced portfolios and practical laboratory based submissions are also used in some modules.
