SCQF Level 7

Course Overview
This award aims to develop your abilities to apply analysis and synthesis skills to the solution of engineering problems. You`ll learn to break down full engineering systems into component areas in order to examine how they function and contribute to the full system.

This HNC qualification will allow you to seek employment in a wide range of industrial service public and renewable energy sector organisations. Market research indicates that HNC and HND Engineering awards are still regarded as the minimum qualifications required by many organisations to work at engineering technician level. By completing the HNC you`ll give yourself an excellent opportunity of gaining a place on HND and degree level Mechanical Electrical Electronic and Renewable Energy courses. The course is, therefore, a fantastic starting platform.
