Course Description

This course builds upon the Faculty of Engineering & Science's extensive provision in this area. It differs from an HNC by focusing on the specific skill needs identified by the industry.

In addition to the core courses required to ensure the specialist integrity of the course, there are up to 90 credits of sector-specific accredited work-based learning/training. 

This course is available only to applicants that are currently employed in industry. It is aimed at electrical engineering practitioners operating at higher technician level who wish to combine industrial practice with a greater knowledge of the associated theoretical principles.

This course is part-time in terms of the credits studied at the university. However, it is envisaged that with supplementary learning and work-based projects being undertaken outside the normal academic year, learning will be full-time.

The development, design and delivery of this foundation degree has been informed by extensive consultation with local industry. It meets the academic requirements for progression to BEng Hons degrees.

Course aims

  • To provide a progression route for students that have or are in the process of completing an Advanced Apprenticeship in Electrical Engineering and who aspire to study at higher technician level to achieve a Higher Apprenticeship and/or Incorporated Engineer Status
  • To provide a nationally recognised qualification (exit award) that successfully integrates learning at work and academic study in a manner that provides significant flexibility for the sponsor company to develop the profile of their employee(s)
  • To facilitate progression onto 'Incorporated Engineer' types of honours degree
  • Placing the student at the centre of learning.
