Modern engineering requires an increasing level of interaction between engineering disciplines that have traditionally been considered to be largely separate. Employers are consequently seeking engineers and technicians with a wide knowledge of many fields, rather than a specialised knowledge in one particular area. The Level 2 T-Level Transition Programme in Electrical & Electronic Engineering provides you with a broad engineering education that covers a wide range of electrical & electronic engineering subjects. You'll learn the principles which underpin electronics and then you'll work in the electronics laboratory to put theory into practice, building and testing a number of different circuits. Along the way you’ll learn how to use a range of measurement and test equipment such as oscilloscopes and multimeters. Throughout the course, you'll have the opportunity to go on trips to engineering organisations to see how they operate. You’ll also attend guest talks from real-world engineers currently working in industry or academia. Staff Profile – Mrs. Morvarid Feizollahian, Lecturer in Electrical and Electronic Engineering: In 2014, I graduated with a First class Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Electrical and Control Engineering. I have spent a year in MAPNA as a control engineer designing Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC). In 2018, I graduated with Master of Science (MSc) in Advanced Control and Systems Engineering from the University of Manchester. My research interests include designing robust controllers for a Quadrotor system against disturbance and uncertainty. I started working for South and City College Birmingham in September 2017 as a Lecturer in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. I am teaching a variety of engineering courses ranging from Level 1 to Level 5. My programming skills includes C, C++, Java, computer Vision and MATLAB. I am also an expert in Simulink, Proteous, PLC, and National Instrument (NI) LabVIEW.
In addition to the core electrical & electronic engineering topics, units covered include:
• The engineering world
• Investigating an engineered product
• Health and safety in engineering
• Engineering materials
• Interpreting and using engineering information
• Mathematics for engineering
• Engineering design
• Engineering assembly
• Introduction to communications for engineering
You will need to have achieved both GCSE in English language and maths at Grade 4/C or above. All students will also be required to attend and satisfactorily complete a formal induction period.
Students who successfully complete this programme will be eligible to apply for our Level 3 T-Level. You can also progress onto Advanced Apprenticeships or directly into employment.
