ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Students should have a minimum of Grade 5 (B) in Maths or Physics with an additional four supporting Grade 4s (C) including English.

PROGRESSION

This is an advanced level course. Achievement can attract up to 112 new UCAS points (equivalent to 2 A Levels at A* grade).

WHO IS THE COURSE FOR?

Engineering is a growth industry and is said to be a leading light for the UK and rest of the world. If you want to be part of a collective of professionals who will help change our world for the better, then this course is for you. This can mean you wish to progress into various fields such as Mechanical, Electronic, Civil and other types of Engineering.

This course can provide opportunities, whether it be seeking employment or going to university.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

You will study several disciplines across engineering which will include both theoretical and practical work. Most importantly as you develop your skill set you will have the opportunity to focus your skills and develop specialisms, meaning you can build your portfolio for working life, or get a taste of what you may wish to study at university.

WHAT SUBJECTS WILL I STUDY?

Subjects include, but not are limited to:

  • Mechanical principles
  • Electrical and electronic principles
  • Sustainable engineering solutions
  • Engineering drawing
  • Mathematics for engineering technicians
  • Principles and applications of thermodynamics
  • Fluid mechanics

The engineering team will undertake to formulate direct links with industry for each students which may result in work experience, mentor support and ultimately can aid in gaining employment or progression to apprenticeships.

HOW WILL I LEARN?

You will attend college for one day per week, over two years, each day is usually from 9.00am until 6.00pm.

We think it is best to give you a range of teaching methods, you will do some work in classrooms; however this is to give you the supporting theory so that you can apply it when you move into our practical workshops. The workshop areas are designed to ensure you know how to work in real engineering environments. You will be using equipment that is specialized, something that other students will only dream of using!

All units are internally assessed and graded by your tutors, so no need to worry about pinning all of your study on one 3 hours exam. Instead you are assessed continually so that you can improve yourself and ensure you will be the best candidate for anything you wish to do after the course, whether it be getting a job or going to university.

WHAT CAN THIS COURSE LEAD TO?

This course is perfectly suited to someone who wishes to enter the field of engineering. We aim to prepare you to work in industry by utilising our tutors’ knowledge and working with leading manufacturers and engineering companies who are both local and global.

We feel the right balance of theory and practical work will provide great opportunities in terms of employability or progression onto university.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
