National Diploma: Chemical Engineering N1-N6

Overview

Chemical Engineering N1 - N6 is an area of engineering that applies physical sciences (physics and chemistry), life sciences (microbiology and biochemistry), together with applied mathematics and economics to produce, transform, transport, and properly use chemicals, materials and energy. This qualification is designed to provide the theory of Chemical Engineering. You can attain a National Certificate or Diploma once you have worked 24 months.

Admission Requirements:

  • N1 Entry Requirement: Grade 10 (Std 8) Certificate with a pass in Mathematics and Physical Science OR no formal qualification for everyone 23 years or older.
  • N3 Entry Requirement: Grade 11 (Std 9) Certificate with a pass in Mathematics and Physical Science or N2.
  • N4 Entry Requirement: Matric/Grade 12 (with full mathematics and science 40%+ Passrate), or N3 Pass (with mathematics and science)

 

NOTE: Proceed to next level only when the previous level has been successfully completed i.e. N4 for N5, etc

Our Learning Methods

At AIE, The Academic Institute of Excellence we understand that that each person prefers different learning styles and techniques. This is influenced by many factors including, circumstances, location, field of study and learning preference. It is for this reason that we have developed our myWay learning methodology, a unique and modern approach to blended learning that encompasses multiple delivery methods, involving our three main channels.

Full Time

Reach your full potential through our myWay Instructor-led or Mentorship based classes combined with interactive lessons, practical assignments and in-field experience, combined with our blended platform to make up a full day or selective days within a week.

Part Time

Designed for the working professional, our part time programmes provides you with the flexibility and benefit of our myWay Blended Learning with at home exercises/assignments and mentored or in-class lectures at a manageable schedule and pace.

Online

We have re-defined online learning. Our myWay Online Learning ensures that the student is supported by technology and people throughout his academic journey. We focus on a blended learning approach, combining online Virtual Classrooms, at home exercises, activities and project-based assignments bundled with fully developed video lectures, all managed by our student learning platform.
