This course is perfect if you would like a career in mechanical engineering. It combines workshop- and classroom-based studies with at least nine weeks if industry experience with an employer.
A T Level is a nationally-recognised qualification that is worth the same number of UCAS points as 3 A levels and is accepted by universities. It is an examination-based qualification with a placement element.
You will develop an understanding of a broad range of issues relevant to the sector, including:
- Working within the Engineering and Manufacturing Sectors – an understanding of how materials, conditions and context influence design processes and products
- Essential mathematics for engineering and manufacturing – a knowledge and understanding of mathematics including standard matrices and determinants and standard trigonometry
- Materials and their properties – understanding material processing techniques and their effects on materials and material quality, the condition of materials, how these are managed, and materials testing methods and techniques
- Business, commercial and financial awareness - basic commercial principles including commercial priorities and markets, customers/clients/partners and resource allocation
T Level courses will feature a technical qualification, which will include:
- Year 1 - Core
- Core theory, concepts and skills for engineering centred on design, automation and manufacturing in electrical and mechanical engineering
- Year 2 – Specialist pathway
- Design and Development: Mechanical Engineering
Every T Level will include an industry placement with an employer, focused on developing the practical and technical skills required for the occupation. These will last a minimum of 315 hours (approximately 45 days) but can last longer. Employers can offer industry placements as a block, day release or a mix of these, and can discuss sharing part of the placement with another employer if necessary.
