¿I would definitely recommend the HNC Engineering Systems to others. In fact, I've been actively encouraging my younger brother to enrol, as it has been so beneficial for me and I believe it will do the same for him. It is really challenging but if you put the hard work in it definitely pays off.¿ Thomas Miller
