Course introduction


Awarding Body

Pearson Education Ltd, United Kingdom


The programme is designed to provide a wide range of engineering and management skills and you, as either an individual or part of a team, will need to solve technical problems and implement appropriate solutions.

You will start by learning the fundamental skills to understand basic engineering principles. As you progress through the course, its emphasis will focus in on a number og electrical and electronic subject areas.

Curriculum Overview

Programme Structure

Learning Objectives

  • The following are the learning objectives:
  • To prepare a range of technical and management careers in electrical and electronic engineering;
  • To develop a range of skills and techniques, personal qualities and attributes essential for successful performance in working life and thereby enable students to make an immediate contribution to employment at the appropriate professional level;
  • To provie specialist studies relevant to individual vocations and professions in which students are working or intend to seek empolyment in electrical / electroni engineering and its related industries;
  • To enable progression to or count towards an undergraduate degree or further professional qualification in electrical / electronic engineering in the related area;
  • To provide a significant educational base for progression to Incorporated Engineer level.

Teaching and Learning Methods

Delivery of the module/unit will be through a blend of lectures, tutorials, Lab and workshops. Lectures are a major part of the teaching strategy for the programme. Case studies are a teaching and learning strategy, which are employed in a range of modules: they are a useful assessment tool. Students are presented with real or simulated complex problems which they are required to analyse in detail and then synthesise/present their own solution in writing or orally.

Students are expected to take greater responsibility for their own learning as they progress through their programmes. The student-centred approach will be encouraged through the use of specific teaching strategies; case studies; projects and practical exercises, supplemented by the use of appropriate support materials; etc. Active engagement with the subject material enhances learning and many of the learning strategies used attempt to promote this.

Assessment and Examinations

The Pearson BTEC Level 5 HND Diploma in Electrical/Electronic Engineering is assessed by written assignments, practical and/or time constrained assessment. The assessment strategies are designed to provide fitness for purpose for the individual units of study. Assessments relate directly to learning outcomes and one assessment usually covers a range of learning outcomes. Assessments take the form of examinations (seen/unseen, open book, essays/short answers – if applicable), report, case study, presentations, individual and/or group reports etc. All assessments are equal weighting.

Attendance Requirements

International Students (ICA student pass holder) must attend a minimum of 90% of scheduled course hours at all time. A minimum attendance of 75% must be achieved for local students (Singaporean, PR, Employment Pass, SPass and work permit holders etc.) who are not holding student pass. Students whose attendance is below 90% (ICA Student Pass holder) and 75% (local students) are not eligible to submit the assignment or sit for the examination.

A student who is absent or considered to be absent from class/session, must provide documentary proof i.e. Original Medical Certificate issued by a General Practitioner, Polyclinic or Hospital to his/her Course Administrator immediately on his/her return to school.

Graduation Requirements

Students are required to pass 16 modules/units of Pearson BTEC Level 5 HND Diploma. Successful students can progress into the final year of the Bachelor degree programme recommended by Pearson Education Ltd and/or TEG International College.
