Modern engineering requires an increasing level of interaction between engineering disciplines that have traditionally been considered to be largely independent. 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 programme provides you with a broad engineering education that covers a wide range of engineering principles embracing mechanical, manufacturing and electrical/electronic engineering. You will experience an interactive way of learning. Practical and experimental classes offer you hands-on experience to complement your course's more theoretical modules, while innovative design-build-test projects replace the more traditional lesson and lab sessions.
