The awards have been designed to allow candidates to meet the educational requirements to work as an electronics technician Market research indicates that there is a growing demand for people with technician level skills in electronics especially as companies automate more of their processes. Thus, it is confidently anticipated that those achieving the HNC and HND Electronics will find employment as electronic technicians and senior electronic technicians in a wide range of small, medium and large companies.

An HNC or HND Electronics no longer satisfies the full academic requirements to become an incorporated engineer (a degree is now required). However, the new HNC and HND Electronics provide a very solid platform for candidates to proceed to the advanced stages of a degree programme in electronics.
