Am I right for the course?

You will need to complete the Higher National (HNC) before starting the HND. There is no direct entry on to this course.

Students should already have a BTEC Higher National Certificate in an engineering discipline.

Assessment is by a series of assignments (course work).

Oaklands can boast an impressive list of professional experts as part of their Engineering team. This year, your teachers will include highly skilled and motivated engineers in both the mechanical and electrical fields.

What Next?

You could directly enrol on to an Engineering Degree at University depending upon your grades and units taken at HNC/D.

There are so many different areas of engineering to work in; however, most engineers choose to specialise in just one, such as chemical, automotive or robotics.  Careers in engineering are constantly evolving and new processes and technologies are being developed all the time.  This allows engineers to stay on the ball and react to new problems and challenges in their chosen career.

Engineering careers are constantly varied in terms of their job responsibilities, but also in their working locations.  As an engineer you could be working in an office, in a laboratory, on an oil rig, in a factory or on a race track.

Each engineering discipline requires professionals with very specific skill-sets.  However each and every area of this sector is as complex as the next.  Consequently, all engineers need to have strong mathematical skills, logic and the ability to rise to intellectual and practical challenges.
