BTEC National Extended Certificate in Engineering - equivalent to 1 A Level.
In this course, you will follow a variety of units addressing both the fundamentals of working in an engineering workplace and taster units covering the many disciplines of Engineering.
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).
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.
