The Electrical and Electronics Engineering HNC (RQF) course, awarded by Pearson, provides students with a firm grounding in the fundamental engineering principles that are key to all engineering roles, whilst providing the opportunity to begin to specialise in a field of interest. <br/>The course is perfect for students looking to progress from full-time level 3 study and also for those students who are already employed and are looking to extend their knowledge to progress their career. This stimulating and challenging programme of study has been designed in conjunction with industry leaders and provides the core elements for successful career progression in the electronics and electrical engineering industry. Havering Colleges, New City College is registered with the Office for Students. <br/><br/>Successful completion of this course satisfies the academic requirements for the Engineering Council’s Engineering Technician standard. Upon completion of the course, students are able to refer to themselves as an Engineering Technician (EngTech) and apply for Engineering Council membership. This is a classroom based course.<br/><br/>For part-time students, the course is studied over a period of two years. Attendance is 1 day per week.<br/>The course will take place at our Rainham Campus. Please note: teaching may begin at our Quarles Campus due to the development of the Rainham Campus.<br/><br/>You will receive feedback on all practice assessments and on formal assessments undertaken by coursework within three weeks of your submission. Feedback is intended to help you learn and you are encouraged to discuss it with your module tutor. <br/><br/>You must pass all modules in order to gain your qualification. Students passing a module will be given a pass, merit or distinction grade.<br/>Overall workload<br/><br/>Per week, the part time course workload will include:<br/>7 hours of lectures<br/>2.5 hours of workshops and simulation sessions<br/>0.5 hours per fortnight of one-to-one meetings<br/><br/>Over the course of the year, you will spend 85% of your time in timetabled teaching and learning activity:<br/>Teaching and learning and assessment: 16.75 hours<br/>Independent learning: 3 hours.<br/><br/>All of our teaching staff are experienced in the field. All students are allocated a personal tutor who will be your first point of communication should you have any queries or concerns. Regular 1:1 sessions will take place within the classroom where there will be the opportunity to discuss your course and progress.<br/><br/>This course will equip you with the skills and knowledge to pursue a career in engineering, or obtain the necessary skills needed to progress your current engineering career and operate as an Engineering Technician. The course also provides the foundation for further qualifications including a higher national diploma (HND) in engineering, foundation degree or as the first qualifying year for a B.Eng (Hons) degree course. The course has been designed to meet the requirements of the engineering industry and is underpinned by the research knowledge and industry experience of our staff. <br/>At the end of the course, students should be able to demonstrate the core knowledge and skills needed for an engineering role, as well as some of the more specialised skills needed within the electronics and electrical engineering fields. Students will have an appreciation of contemporary theory and also understand their responsibilities in regards to cost, sustainability and the rapid change that takes place within world-class engineering.
