Successful completion of the HNC qualification will allow students to progress to a Level 5 Higher National Diploma qualification which will be delivered subject to numbers of progressing students. Completion of the course will also allow progression to another higher education qualification such as a university degree in a construction, renewable technologies, or a built environment related area subject to university entrance requirements.

This is an industry recognised qualification, and the course has been developed to meet requirements of several professional bodies, including the Institution of Civil Engineers, Chartered Institute of Architectural technologists and the Chartered Institute of Building. The course will therefore prepare students for employment in a range of careers in construction and the built environment, including architectural technology, civil engineering, building services engineering, quantity surveying, construction management and renewable engineering either with design consultants, contractors, or the public sector.
