Overview

Our unique Level 2 Two-Year Mechanical Engineering programme is designed to support you in achieving a Level 2 qualification in Engineering by embedding a Skills Development and Employability programme into your Engineering course. From day 1 we'll begin preparing you, not just with the technical knowledge required by the industry, but also with the additional skills employers expect from their employees.

Course description

The Level 2 Two-Year Mechanical Engineering programme provides you with a broad engineering education that covers a wide range of Mechanical Engineering subjects.

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 workshop sessions.

What areas will I study?

In addition to the core Mechanical 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

The Skills Development and Employability programme will develop your organisational skills, time-management and team-working skills in addition to the many more skills employers seek in the engineering sector.

What are the entry requirements?

Whilst there are no formal entry criteria, engineering is a technical subject with both theory and practical elements to the courses we offer. Therefore some working knowledge of basic maths is desired.

You will be required to attended and work towards English and/or maths grade 4 as part of your study programme.

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 our Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma courses. You can also progress onto Advanced Apprenticeships or directly into employment.
