Theme of the week is: Individual Liberty

Engineering (BTEC)

Students with particular skill and interest in aspects of Design and Technology concerned with designing, making and problem solving should consider this course, particularly if they have aspirations to follow a career in the engineering industry and are interested in how engineering products are designed and made.

 

Engineering is one of the most important job sectors in the UK offering a wide variety of careers. Engineering is about bringing good ideas into reality using a range of problem solving and creative skills.

 

The specification will include compulsory units on ‘The Engineering World’ and ‘Investigating an Engineering Product’ as well as a choice of optional units chosen to suite our students.

 

You will learn in both the classroom and workshop and have the opportunity to use computers to design, test and make products. You will carry out a range of activities including investigations into the different aspects of the engineering industries.

 

The assessment is largely based on coursework although one unit will be assessed by an external exam, probably by means of an on-line test to be taken when candidates are ready for it.
