Introduction

The Pearson BTEC level 4 Higher National Certificate in Electrical and Electronic Engineering is strongly vocational and forms a solid basis in Electrical and Electronic Engineering fundamentals. It aims to produce high quality, creative technicians and engineers. 

The BTEC Higher National Certificate is directly awarded by Pearson Education, UK, one of the leading examining and awarding bodies in the United Kingdom. 

BTEC Higher National Certificate qualifications are widely welcomed by the employers, recognized by many international professional bodies and having access to UK and other universities to enter into the second year of an honours degree Electrical/Electronic/ Computer Engineering subject to the respective universities discretion.

Successful BTEC Higher National graduates will able to:

  • demonstrate a sound knowledge of the basic concepts of electrical and electronic engineering.
  • communicate accurately and appropriately and they will have the qualities of personal responsibility needed for employment.
  • developed a range of transferable skills to ensure effective team working, independent working with growing fault finding and problem-solving strategies, and organisational awareness.
  • adaptable and flexible in their approach to work, showing resilience under pressure and the ability to meet challenging targets within a reasonable, pre-set, timeframe.
  • demonstrate regard for the ethical responsibilities of the engineer, for cost and for the importance of protecting and sustaining the environment.
