The HNC to HND 'top-up' course was developed in response to demand from BTEC HNC students at Huddersfield who wished to continue their education, part-time, while remaining in employment. The course may also be suitable for you if you have an HNC or equivalent qualification from another institution.
The course will broaden your technical knowledge and further develop your practical skills. It will also provide a bridge to study at BEng (hons) level, for example on our Engineering with Technology Management BEng (hons), thereby enhancing your career opportunities.
Two taught modules add to the range of technical subjects already covered at HNC level and two modules, acquired through work based learning (WBL), provide an opportunity for managed career and skills development.
- Engineering Applications (WBL)
- Professional Development (WBL)
- Embedded Systems
Successful Diplomates have secured careers in the design, development, production and maintenance of electronic and electrical systems in a wide range of applications, including industrial, entertainment, computing, medical, communications and aerospace. Others have gone on to further study to BEng(Hons) and Master's level.
Teaching, learning and assessment of knowledge, understanding and design principles are developed through lectures, worked example sessions and tutorials. Practical design, implementation and test skills are developed through laboratory work. Assessment takes place through feedback on tutorial exercises and practical work. Work based learning is supported by detailed documentation and the help of a personal tutor.
