What will I study?

This online computer engineering course is designed for those looking to specialise in computer engineering, either for a career in this specialised field, or for further university study.

The course is split into 6 units. Three of these units cover the core engineering subject matter.

There are then 2 specialist Computer Engineering units, plus one final optional unit of your choice.

During your study you will cover the six units outlined below. You will start by studying the fundamental principles that under-pin engineering:


Core Units

Introduction to Programming 

Students are introduced to simple programming constructs and their application to the different programming paradigms: procedural, functional, event-driven and object oriented. You will learn to understand the building blocks of computer programs and use these to create programs in Javascript, with an appreciation of quality assurance.


Engineering Maths

Students learn the fundamental mathematical skills necessary to succeed with the rest of the course such as algebra, statistics and calculus.


Computer Science

This unit introduces students to computer architecture, further mathematics relevant to computer science and the process of engineering software, so that you can develop full stack web applications making informed decisions about the platforms and tools used. You will learn about database systems and software engineering.


Specialist Units

Electrical & Electronic Engineering Principles

This unit will introduce you to the basics of electrical and electronic engineering. The Electrical section of this unit introduces you to properties and characteristics of electrical supplies and semiconductors. The Electronic section focuses on Analogue and Digital signals, amplifiers and logic gates.


Robots & Control

This unit introduces students to range of common industrial robots, including their construction and applications of transformers, motors and generators so that you can make informed decisions within an engineering context.


+1 Optional Unit

 You will have access to a range of optional units, so that you can study topics that interest you. These may even lie outside the field of computer engineering such as mechanical, electrical or aerospace engineering.

To be awarded a Higher International Certificate in Computer Engineering (EduQual Level 4), you must successfully complete 120 credits at level 4. Each of the 6 units are worth 20 credits each.

Is it fully accredited?

Yes. All our courses are fully accredited by a UK awarding body, EduQual.

EduQual is a regulated awarding body, approved by SQA-Accreditation, and a globally-recognised national qualifications regulator in the UK. They are a full member of the Federation of Awarding Bodies (FAB).

Are there any entry requirements?

Our level 4 Higher International Certificate courses are all designed to be open courses, meaning there are no pre-request entry requirements.

We have specifically designed our maths and science units so that they start with the very basics and develop your skills up to the required level needed to complete the course.

All our courses are delivered in English language, so you must be competent in learning technical information in English.

How long will it take to complete?

Typically, most learners take between 1 and 2 years when studying on a part time basis.

However, as these are distance learning engineering courses, you are in control of your own learning schedule and so you have the freedom to complete the course in your own timescale. Therefore our online engineering courses can be completed more quickly depending on your existing commitments and/or your existing knowledge.

How am I assessed?

All of our units are assessed by 100% written assignments. There are no exams to sit.

Tutor Support

Throughout the course, you will be given tutor support to help you with any questions or problems you may have on your course. All our tutors are experts in engineering, with many years teaching experience.

“I successfully graduated my Higher International Certificate in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. The studies was good, tutor provide much support. I recommend iLearn Engineering for distance learning Engineering studies.”

Fuad, Higher International Certificate in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

“So far, in two weeks study I have understood more content with these guys than in one year at part time university. Really good content especially in maths and makes learning a nice smooth progressive path rather than being rushed and pressured. Top notch service 👍”  

Simon, Higher International Certificate in Mechanical Engineering

“This program is providing me with the opportunity to finally finish my engineering degree at the most reasonable cost I’ve seen in the market to date…I highly recommend iLearn Engineering for anyone who wants to get into the field or pickup where they left off.”

Ian, Higher International Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering
