Engineering is about providing solutions to problems, so if you love Maths and Physics and want to apply your knowledge to real world issues, then this course will suit you.

This is a general introduction to Engineering designed to allow progression to further study, an apprenticeship or employment within Mechanical, Electrical
or Civil Engineering. It focusses on the principles and ideas of Engineering and develops the mathematical, problem solving, analytical and logical thinking skills required to solve Engineering challenges.

Throughout the course you will consider topics such as Maths for Engineering and Engineering Materials and Applications. You will also study Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Engineering for the Environment (sustainability).

A range of teaching approaches will be used to develop your independent study & research skills and weekly activities will include discussion of theory, work on practice questions and practical investigations.

How will I be assessed?

This course is assessed through a combination of external exams and coursework.

What do I need?

You will need to have achieved Maths and Double Science/Physics at Grade 6, and 5 GCSEs at Grade 5, including English Language.

Where can it take me?

You can progress to an exciting range of higher level courses, including HND Music. A university degree in a related subject, such as Music Production, Sound Design, Radio Broadcast, Media Production and Music Performance, is an option.

This course is also ideal if you are interested in a career within any area of Engineering (Mechanical, Electrical, Civil, Automotive, Aerospace, Design etc.) or related technical industries.
