This level is ideal for experienced learners with an understanding and practical experience of specialist engineering technologies and principles
The qualification includes mandatory and a range of optional units, allowing you to specialise in one of a number engineering disciplines. You will demonstrate the knowledge and understanding of working safely and communicating in an engineering environment, as well an understanding of the ‘principles’ of your chosen discipline.
Mandatory units include:
- Engineering health and safety
- Computer automated and robotic systems principles
- Power supply, and analogue and digital circuit principles and fault
Through a series of assignments, you will be able to demonstrate your technical and problem-solving skills. This may involve you in:
- Machining materials
- Maintaining hydraulic and pneumatic systems
- Using computer automated and robotic systems
- Using mechatronics systems
- Using composites materials
You will study both the practical use and underpinning knowledge of the subject, which may involve local employers providing real examples as part of the training.
It is expected that you will visit or have visits from employers who can provide demonstrations and talks on the industry, which may also be a relevant work placement.
