Overview

This course is suitable for anyone who has completed the BTEC Level 2 Engineering course and wants to develop their skills to a higher level, working in areas of specialism including Computer Aided Design, electronics and manufacture.

Completion of the course will enable you to apply for a job as a CAD designer, materials engineer, manufacturing engineer, maintenance engineer, tool maker, fabricator, welder or machine operative, progress to an advanced engineering apprenticeship or study for a higher level engineering qualification. 


Details

This is a two year course that offers an excellent progression from the BTEC Level 2 Engineering course although this is not essential. The full Diploma course consists of 10 units of work completed over two years. It is assessed internally and externally through project-based coursework assignments, including a range of practical tasks and presentations. 
If you want to gain an in-depth knowledge of engineering principles and how these are applied in the industry, the BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Manufacturing Engineering will develop your understanding of materials, mechanical principles, engineering processes, computer-aided manufacturing, modern manufacturing systems, additive manufacturing and machining.

How will it be delivered?

The full course consists of 10 units of work completed over two years with each unit building towards the final grade at the end of Year 13. This is equivalent to 2 A Level qualifications.
Engineering principles and Engineering Product Design and Manufacture are the externally assessed units and will be taught over the 2 years of study. All other units have been designed to compliment each other. Health and safety, team work and interpreting and creating computer-aided engineering drawings are integral to every unit and are assessed throughout the course. A specialist engineering project allows you to design, develop and manufacture a product using skills and knowledge obtained in other machining units.
