Basically, there are some core modules which you must do and thereafter you choose from the optional modules to make up the rest of your chosen HNC.
Ive heard alot that the HNC in electrical engineering is very electronics biased? is this correct?
There is a lot of electronics in electrical equipment nowadays and most universities offer courses which are thus combined electrical and electronic. There are also a lot of commonalities between electrical and electronic theory because of course it's all electricity related. At HNC level you study a lot more of the theoretical stuff. With the COLU option you also get to choose optional modules and so that part of your HNC depends on your choices.
what is the average completion time?
If you check the http://www.tees.ac.uk/schools/sse/colu/courses.cfm
and 'How long will it take?' section you can then decide if to do more hours each week in which case you could finish quicker.
ive seen alot around 2years, can it be done quicker or is 2 years about right?
I did two in about 10 months, if that helps to answer your question.
