HND Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering
About the course:
The HND diploma at level 5 is a follow on qualification from the HNC Diploma at level 4. It is what is called a nested qualification in that credits obtained at level 4 are also used to achieve the level 5 qualification. The HNC requires 120 credits while the HND requires a further 120 credits, 240 credits in total.
The HND Diploma builds on the more technical, academic HNC programme. The HND is more about the application of principles evidenced through more worked related units.
