Core Modules (Level 5) - Process Engineering

This level of study consolidates learning and enables students to start increasing the breadth and depth of their knowledge. These modules include the skills and knowledge required to deal with advanced design processes, as well as developing the students’ analytical and investigative skills.

Core Modules (Level 5) - Process Engineering

Project (20 credits) - HNC Process Engineering  / PEEHNC-OL

Project (20 credits) - HNC Process Engineering / PEEHNC-OL


This module presents the opportunity for students to use the knowledge and skills they have developed at work and in their programme of studies, in the definition, management and completion of a work-related project, including the presentation of their findings to an appropriate audience. The module thereby aims to integrate the skills and knowledge developed in other modules of the course within a major piece of work that reflects the type of performance expected of a higher technician at work.The student is advised to study this module until last and is advised to use a ‘real’ project based on their own workplace where this is possible.

One single component of assessment comprising three equally weighted elements:

  • Element 1 comprises a logbook or project diary documenting the progress of the project
  • Element 2 comprises a project report of approximately 3000 words
  • Element 3 oral presentation of the project 5-10 mins

Safety Engineering (15 credits) - HNC Process Engineering  / PEEHNC-OL

Safety Engineering (15 credits) - HNC Process Engineering / PEEHNC-OL


This module covers the fundamentals of contemporary Safety Engineering as applied to industrial processes. It consists of an introduction to the terminology, the nature and treatment of hazards, hazard analysis, risk assessment, emergency procedures and the application of protective measures associated with various hazards The main aims of the module are to provide a firm foundation for work in Safety Engineering and to act a basis for more advanced studies of safety practices.

The in-course assessment will take the form of a series of elements of assessment generally comprising 5-10 questions designed to assess the students’ ability to investigate, interpret and analyse a problem and to produce a workable solution.
