HND Electronic Engineering
- GE8G 16

HND Electronic Engineering<br />- GE8G 16

An SQA HND in Electronic Engineering will give you the practical engineering skills, theoretical knowledge of a range of core electrical, analogue electronics and digital electronics principles as well as the ability to apply analysis synthesis skills to the solution of electronic problems. It covers all the fundamental aspects of Electronic Engineering, including testing, fault finding and construction.

The SQA HND in Electronic Engineering consists of a total of 30 Unit credits. Each Unit credit is designed to take about 40 hours teaching and learning (though it may take more or less time than this).

An SQA HND in Electronic Engineering can gain you entry in to an English speaking university.

SQA's prestigious qualifications are recognised worldwide.

A Guide for Tutors

Communication Units

This document is aimed at tutors who are teaching learners whose first language is not English.

The purpose of this document is to provide a selection of formative exercises that will:

  • provide interesting exercises to motivate learners
  • increase learners' confidence in their ability to communicate effectively in English
  • prepare learners to successfully pass the summative assessments

Communication Units in HNCs and HNDs

Research Skills

This guide provides support for developing good practice in how the Research Skills Unit (F60A 34) might be delivered, scheduled and assessed. It contains guidance on delivering the Research Skills Unit both on a stand-alone basis or integrating with other Units, and provides customised checklists for integration with various Graded Units
