Do you like to get to the bottom of how things work, solve problems and make things? You could be an engineer!
Engineering is a combination of science and maths used to solve real-life problems. As an engineer you could help to design and construct visionary buildings, work on aircraft, develop the latest green technology to save the planet, or invent new medical devices to improve healthcare.
Our Engineering specialism will provide you with the knowledge and skills to work across this diverse and growing sector. You will learn Computer Aided Design (CAD) and work in state-of-the-art facilities including high-spec workshops for materials’ testing, electronics, hydraulics and pneumatics, mechanical and manufacturing engineering.
Part of your learning will involve real-life challenges set by engineering and manufacturing employers that will stretch you and build your industry skills.
- Working Within the Engineering and Manufacturing Sectors
- Engineering Representations
- Essential Mathematics for Engineering and Manufacturing
- Essential Science for Engineering and Manufacturing
- Materials and their Properties
- Mechanical Principles
- Electrical and Electronic Principles
You will gain a sound understanding of fundamental principles such as Mechanical Principles, Engineering Maths and Electrical Principles before progressing to specialist Engineering subjects.
This will ensure you have developed the skills needed to practically apply your knowledge in the second year of the course where the units of study become more specific to your chosen pathway and have clear links to the occupational competency required in the workplace.
You will develop your knowledge and understanding of core ‘Engineering principles.’
