Level: 3 | Duration: 2 Years | Details: September
What is this course about?
This course is designed to allow you to develop the higher level skills needed to progress to university or employment at a technical or professional level within the engineering industry.
The duration of this course is two years. The first year of your course will be spent studying engineering principles in maths, electrical and mechanics, along with core engineering knowledge such as behaviour of engineering materials. You will also gain fundamental skills which are essential to successful progression into the world of modern engineering; in Computer Programming and Computer Aided Design (CAD).
In your second year, alongside specialist mechanical and electrical units such as Microprocessors, you will get the experience of exploring further mathematical modelling in engineering through Calculus and Further Maths. You will also have the opportunity to choose an engineering specialism on which you will base your specialist engineering project and two further optional units.
Many students thoroughly enjoy embarking upon Projects whilst studying with us. Past students have linked with the local council in order to design and make green projects for the local community, design and produce prototypes of wildlife conservation equipment, enter competitions with green energy challenges, adapt existing drones for useful applications such as search and rescue or firefighting. This often results in an impressive folder that allows our students to showcase a variety of skills and attributes that often lends itself well to ‘the next step’ such as university or employment interviews.
Why choose this course?
Access to our new and unique ‘IDEA Centre’ which houses cutting edge Engineering facilities.
The opportunity to travel to San Francisco and explore famous “silicon valley” engineering companies, as well as world renowned feats of engineering like the Golden Gate Bridge.
You will be joining a supportive and enthusiastic team of qualified engineers, lecturers and support staff that all have different industry experience in their specialist fields of engineering; they will provide support and guidance throughout your course.
The College has had major investment in industry standard facilities, celebrated excellent grades, excellent value added, enrichment opportunities, guest speakers and university trips all designed to help you achieve your best and progress in your chosen career.
A minimum of 5 GCSEs at Grade 9 – 4 including a Grade 5 in Maths, a Grade 4 in English Language and a Grade 4 in Science.
What will this course lead on to?
The course is designed to allow students to progress to further study at university including foundation degrees, BEng, MEng or BSc. Alternatively, you could progress to employment in engineering for example as a Design Engineer or a trainee manger.
