 ‘DUAL’ HND in Engineering: Manufacturing Engineering & General Engineering

For the first time in Sri Lanka, a Pearson BTEC DUAL HND in Manufacturing and General Engineering is offered at HRMI – Faculty of Engineering. This is equivalent to the first 2 years of a Bachelor of Engineering Degree.  

Engineering is a field with great career prospects. With automation and technology being primary inputs in every sector and employers favouring candidates with a STEM knowledge, the demand for Engineers is growing exponentially.  (STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics).

The Dual HND Curriculum includes many disciplines of Engineering, including Production, Quality, Process, Maintenance, Lean, Electrical, Electronic and Digital Technology. The curriculum prepares engineering students to plan, design, build, install and operate competitive production systems for discrete manufacturing as well as process manufacturing.

Engineers specialising in Manufacturing or Production are in great demand world over. Countries like Australia, New Zealand or Canada have always had Manufacturing Engineering as a demanded skill category for migration. Plenty of lucrative employment opportunities are available in the Middle East for Manufacturing Engineers. In Sri Lanka, all top companies now seek qualified Engineers to fill-in their Managerial and Executive positions in manufacturing or technology related jobs.

The tendency of employing technically qualified candidates is amply seen in all sectors including Textiles and Apparels, Logistics, Plantations, Electronics, Pharmaceuticals and FMCGs. Manufacturing Engineers are employed in jobs relating to Sustainability, Maintenance and Project Management as well as in Design, Research & Development.

Manufacturing Engineers not only direct their attention to production systems, they also work together with Design Engineers to assure soundness of design and the consequent manufacturability of products. Manufacturing Engineers thus add their expertise in manufacturing processes, systems and technology to their understanding of engineering design. In the same way, they evaluate the capabilities of manufacturing processes and tools (including computer-aided tools) and interact with Design Engineers during the development of product specifications and tolerances.

Manufacturing Engineering DUAL HND leads to BEng (Hons) or BSc (Hons) in Engineering

On completion of the HND, students can progress to the FINAL year of a BEng (Hons) or BSc (Hons) Engineering degree with many universities in UK or seek advance entry pathways for Universities in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and in several other countries.

At HRMI, students have a specific pathway to the FINAL year in BSc (Hons) Engineering degree with University Northampton – a Gold Ranked University by UK Government. Thus the entire degree could be completed in Sri Lanka. Students also have the option of completing the final year at the University of Northampton in England.
