New course for 2019
NC in Mechanical Engineering at SCQF Level 6
SUBJECT TO APPROVAL
At Scottish Borders Campus
Full-time 36 week course
3 days per week in College
Candidates for the NC should have a minimum of grade C passes in mathematics at Intermediate 2/National 5 level as well as qualifications in technology or physics based subjects. Alternatively, candidates may have passed an NC Engineering qualification at level 5 or have relevant industrial experience. Mature applicants are also invited to apply without the necessary minimum requirements
The NC in Mechanical Engineering provides learners with an excellent foundation in the basic principles of Mechanical Engineering.
Subjects studied include: dynamics, statics, thermofluids and material science.
Mathematics, IT and communications are also covered to give a well-balanced course that will provide students with the necessary knowledge and understanding needed to undertake further study at HNC, HND and degree level.
The NC qualification equips learners with a major requirement of the Modern Apprenticeship in Mechanical Engineering. The NC is in effect, a third of what is needed to complete the MA thereby giving those who complete the programme successfully an advantage in securing an apprenticeship and then full-time employment. The NC will provide the opportunity to study Mechanical Engineering at higher education level where you could achieve either an HNC or HND in Mechanical Engineering, or else a Bachelor of Engineering degree.
