Manufacturing Engineering HND (Top Up) (Level 5) — Part-time
This programme is designed to educate future engineers with greater flexibility and technical capability by exploring the integrated nature of manufacturing and mechanical engineering. It is intended for students who have completed studies at an advanced level, or who have more varied experience and wish to pursue a career in engineering and manufacturing.
The course contains significant project-based learning including laboratory investigations, design work, projects, case studies and tutorials.
The course aims to:
- Develop skills in manufacturing and mechanical engineering
- Encourage students to develop solutions to manufacturing and mechanical problem
- Establish employability skills and develop a multi-tasking and multi-skills approach.
Knowledge of manufacturing engineering and systems is developed by:
- Understanding the general engineering industry and related work placements
- Examining historical, theoretical and ethical positions in response to engineering design
- Considering the relationship between traditional skills and developing technologies
- Being aware of the creative process of engineering design
- Understanding the behaviour of materials subjected to complex loading systems
- Determining the dynamic parameters of power transmission system elements and rotating systems
Practical skills essential for the manufacturing and mechanical engineer includes production methods technical aptitude, pre-planning and production organisation and presentation skills.
Core units include:
- Advanced manufacturing technologies
- Research project
- Professional engineering management
- Manufacturing system engineering
- Lean manufacturing

Pearson HND Manufacturing Engineering
You should have successfully completed a relevant HNC with at least 10 units at Level 4 and 5.
If you are applying from another institution please note that the HNC qualification has to have the same specification as the one at Nottingham College.
|Teaching & assessment||
Coursework is continually assessed through a variety of individual and group assignments, such as practical activities, written reports and presentations.
The HND qualifications provide students with the skills required for industry. For example students have gone on to obtain employment in manufacturing, production, research and development, design, technical sales, mechanical, structural engineering, aerospace and automotive engineering.
After successfully completing the HND, you could also top up to an engineering degree at university.
Engineering Horizon Kit - How renewable energy is the future
Learn more about how renewable energy sources are made and how to make our future greener. We teach our students to be more sustainable throughout their learning with us, as we progress into an everchanging and green-conscious industry.
This video features lecturer Abbad, introducing our horizon kits that students use to learn with.
