Higher International Certificate in Mechanical Engineering (EduQual Level 4)

Our new qualifications in Engineering are designed to address an increasing need for high quality professional and technical education pathways at Levels 4 and 5, thereby providing students with a clear line of sight to employment or to progression to a university degree.

This course is tailored for those looking to specialise in mechanical engineering, either for a career, or for further university study.

The course is split into 6 units. Three of these units are core engineering and are common across each level 4 course.

There are then 2 specialist units in Mechanical  Engineering, and the final one is an optional unit of your choice (a list will be available during enrolment).

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