Course Overview

This is a programme leading to Higher National Certificates (university first year equivalent) awarded by Liverpool John Moores University with the following titles.

HNC Engineering
HNC Advanced Manufacturing Engineering
HNC Aeronautical Engineering
HNC Electromechanical Maintenance Engineering
HNC Electrical and Electronic Engineering
HNC Mechanical Engineering

All pathways provide a broad-based grounding in professional engineering. Each named pathway has a focus on the skills needed to by the specialism in its title, and the Engineering pathway allows students to mix and match modules from the other pathways to suit their own preferences or employment needs.

All awards are available through full- or part-time study and timetables are designed to minimise the number of times that a student would need to travel to College.

It is not necessary to select your pathway at the time of application, this can be selected later in discussions with the programme team.

The full-time fee for this programme is £7725. Part-time fees are charged in proportion to the volume of study undertaken, if this programme is taken over two years the fee would be £4120 per year.
