Overview

Full coverage of the core units of the new Higher National Certificate / Higher National Diploma in Engineering.

· Written specifically for the new syllabus
· Encourages independent study
· Clear and straigntforward text
· Knowledge-check questions and activities throughout
· Includes chapters for electrical and mechanical principles
· The key to success for all HNC/HND Engineering students

For the first time, the HNC/HND programme is now based around a group of mandatory units. Higher National Engineering is a complete text for the six main core units, including the two different Engineering Principles units (mechanical and electrical). Like the syllabus itself, this book is ideal for students progressing to HNC/HND from GNVQs, as well as A-level and BTEC National.

Students are the first consideration throughout, with a separate section on the Project, and applied maths integrated alongside the appropriate areas of engineering studies, as well as being summarised in a separate chapter. The approach of this text follows the successful formula pioneered by Mike Tooley in his two core texts for GNVQ.

The book is fully in line with the Phase 2 units published in June 1998, but remains applicable for Phase 1. A full syllabus match grid appears in the book.
