Successful completion of an HND in Mechanical Engineering will give you the knowledge, understanding and skills you need for relevant industry employment or progression to a degree course.

Training and Development Summary

Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines. As a mechanical engineer you could be working on the tiniest component or the largest production plant. Your expertise is sought after in a wide range of sectors, including the manufacturing, power, construction and medical industries.

This Higher National Diploma course is designed to cover all major functions of mechanical engineering. It includes the following units:

Engineering Design, Engineering Mathematics; Engineering Science, Managing Professional Engineering Project, Mechanical Principles, Robotics and Automation, Fundamentals of Thermodynamics, Computer Aided Design and Manufacture (CAD/CAM) Research Project, Professional Engineering Management, Further Mathematics, Advanced Mechanical Principles, Virtual Engineering; Lean Manufacturing and Further Thermodynamics. HND in Mechanical Engineering Analytical Methods, Engineering Science, Engineering Project, Mechanical Principles. You must also complete 12 optional units. Examples of the most commonly chosen are: Health, Safety and Risk Assessment in Engineering, Materials Engineering, Engineering Thermodynamics, Advanced Computer-Aided Design Techniques, Engineering Design, CADCAM, Engineering Mathematics; Business Management, Computer Programming Techniques, Further Analytical Methods for Engineers, Management of Projects; Strengths of Materials, Design for Manufacture, Application of Machine Tools, Manufacturing Process.

As well as classroom-based and science sessions, we’ll carry out practical activities such as tensile testing, Charpy impact testing and Rockwell hardness testing. These will be incorporated into your assessments. Alongside materials testing equipment you’ll work with CAD software.

Professional Recognition and Career Progression

Successful completion of an HND in Mechanical Engineering will give you the knowledge, understanding and skills you need for relevant industry employment or progression to a degree course or Apprenticeship.
