Am I right for the course?

If you are looking to further your qualifications in Engineering or build on your Engineering experience. At Level 4 & 5 Maths and Science are a key part of the programme.

A BTEC National Diploma or Extended Diploma in an engineering discipline. Other qualifications required are experience that can be identified and authenticated to give good prospects for successful course completion

Assessment is by a series of assignments (course work).

Our engineering teachers include people who have previously built and designed engineered devices such as cars, domestic electronics and computers. All our engineers have industry related experience in a wide range of sectors

What Next?

HND in Engineering by completing further modules over an extra year or directly on to an Engineering Degree at University dependent upon grades at HNC.

There are so many different areas of engineering to work in; however, most engineers choose to specialise in just one, such as chemical, automotive or robotics.  Careers in engineering are constantly evolving and new processes and technologies are being developed all the time.  This allows engineers to stay on the ball and react to new problems and challenges in their chosen career.

Engineering careers are constantly varied in terms of their job responsibilities, but also in their working locations.  As an engineer you could be working in an office, in a laboratory, on an oil rig, in a factory or on a race track.

Each engineering discipline requires professionals with very specific skill-sets.  However each and every area of this sector is as complex as the next.  Consequently, all engineers need to have strong mathematical skills, logic and the ability to rise to intellectual and practical challenges.
