Level: 2 | Duration: 1 Year | Details: September
What is this course about?
On this course, learners will complete two qualifications on this one year course; one in Engineering and one in Construction. Together, these qualifications will allow students to explore careers and progression opportunities across Professional Engineering and Professional Construction. The skills and knowledge that students will develop across both the Engineering and Construction sectors are similar and will support progression onto either pathway at Level 3.
In Design Engineer Construction, you will have the opportunity to run your own construction project from start to finish. You will receive your employer brief at the start of the course and design your own sustainable building for the client. Throughout the design process, you will benefit from input from experts and industry employers to support decisions you have made and justify your final building outcome. You will gain significant digital design skills over the one year course through the use of industry standard software, such as Autodesk Revit.
Your Engineering learning will cover a wide range of Engineering skills and knowledge needed for studying Engineering at Level 3 and beyond. You will complement your construction design skills with Computer Aided Engineering; computer based design and manufacturing, using Autodesk Inventor. You will also use computer software to generate and use Engineering Drawings and complete a full Engineering Product Design project. Learners will also explore scientific methodologies in Electrical and Mechanical units, support by an Engineering Maths unit.
How will I be assessed?
The majority of your Design Engineer Construction qualification will be assessed through a coursework portfolio. This will be your own construction design project, in response to a client brief. You will also sit an external examination at the end of the one year course.
Your BTEC Engineering qualification is mostly assessed through coursework assignments. You will complete two external examinations alongside your coursework. One examination covers Engineering Industry, materials and sustainability. The second exam tests your understanding of Engineering drawings and information used in an Engineering organisation.
4 x GCSE’s Grades 9 – 3 Including Science and English Language and a Grade 4 in Maths
What can this course lead on to?
Students from this course are likely to progress onto Level 3 Professional Engineering or Level 3 Digital Built Environment courses. Students may also be interested in progression on to Level 3 Apprenticeship opportunities in Engineering Design, Computer Aided Design and the Digital Built Environment.
