Overview

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.

Course description

The Level 2 Fast Track programme provides you with a broad engineering education that covers a wide range of engineering principles embracing Mechanical Engineering and Electrical/Electronic Engineering. You will have the choice to select between two distinct pathways in either Mechanical Engineering 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.

What areas will I study?

Key units covered:

  • The engineering world
  • Investigating an engineered product
  • Health and safety in engineering
  • Engineering materials
  • Electronic circuit design and construction
  • Interpreting and using engineering information
  • Mathematics for engineering
  • Electrical and mechanical science for engineering
  • Engineering design
  • Engineering assemble
  • Introduction to communications for engineering
  • Operation and maintenance of electronic systems and components

What are the entry requirements?

Students will need a grade 4 or higher in maths and English Language plus one of the following:

Two other GCSEs at Grade D/3 or higher A Level 1 Engineering qualifaction

All students will also be required to attend and satisfactorily complete a formal induction period

Where can I progress to next?

Students who successfully complete this programme will be eligible to apply for the Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma in Electrical/Electronic Engineering or Mechanical Engineering.
