Unit 1: Engineering Principles – mainly mathematics and engineering theory.

Unit 2: Delivery of Engineering Processes Safely as a Team - exploring how processes are undertaken by teams to create engineered products.

Unit 3: Engineering Product Design and Manufacture - exploring engineering product design and manufacturing processes.

Unit 19: Electronic Devices and Circuits - exploring the operation of electronic devices and their uses in circuits through simulation and practical exercises to build and test physical analogue and digital circuits (Approximately 40% practical work).

How will it be delivered?

Unit 1 = 2 hour written exam, externally assessed.

Unit 2 = three internally assessed assignments.

Unit 3 = 11 hour supervised design task, externally assessed.

Unit 19 = three internally assessed assignments. 

Entry requirements

A minimum of a grade 5 in GCSE Mathematics, and a minimum of a Level 2 Pass in BTEC Engineering or a minimum of a grade 5 in a DT qualification.
