The aim of the Pearson BTEC Level 5 HND in Engineering is to develop the skills and knowledge needed to work within this sector and enhance your employment opportunities. This exciting and challenging higher level course is targeted to those that want to excel and further develop their knowledge towards degree level engineering.
The course aims to equip you with the essential qualities of an engineer - for example working effectively as a team, solving problems, having an awareness of cost, and sustainability.
As part of this course you will study in Boston College's Institute of Technology, providing higher level technical education using specialised equipment.
The Level 5 HND is a two year course. During your first year you will study a Level 4 HNC. This can be a standalone one year qualification. Upon successful completion of the first year, you will then progress on to the second year to study the Level 5 HND.
