Social distancing & enforced bubbles are not standing in the way of young adults planning their futures. While the C19 crisis means students must stay within their school for lessons, BMAT STEM is ensuring the rules do not create a barrier to opportunities https://t.co/TE5MmzcRKl https://t.co/xhMAxV7Aub

Students are monitoring the changing numbers during the day and are going to feedback their findings to our SLT. We’re very proud of 97/100, monitoring the temperature, noise levels, CO2, humidity and air pressure and air pollution of our room.

GCSE Engineering

Why should I study engineering?


Engineering is a large and growing sector of employment in the UK with almost half a million people currently working as engineers in the UK, and millions more worldwide. It is an interesting, and well-paid job with opportunities across the globe in a wide range of disciplines.


What does the course involve?


The engineering GCSE course is divided into 6 units:


1. Engineering materials
2. Engineering manufacturing processes
3. Mechanical and electronic systems
4. Testing and evaluation
5. The impact of modern technologies
6. Practical engineering skills


You will complete theory and practical sessions to help you build your knowledge and skills in the different areas.


How will I be assessed?
60% of your grade will be based on an exam at the end of the course. 40% of your grade will come from a piece of extended coursework where you will design and manufacture a product that uses both electrical and mechanical systems to solve a given problem. It is one of the few GCSEs that still include coursework that counts towards your grade.


What are my options after GCSE?


After the GCSE course, you can choose to continue to study engineering at Level 3, both as a single or double option at BMAT STEM Academy. Many students often choose to combine this course with Maths, Physics, Chemistry or Design courses. You could also choose to study a full-time engineering or construction course at college, or take up an apprenticeship.


Engineering is offered by a large number of UK and international universities, and increasingly, companies are offering degree apprenticeships where you work and study while being paid. There are not enough engineers in the UK so you are almost guaranteed employment in an engineering sector.


What should I do to prepare for the course?


Engineers need to be comfortable with maths and physics so it is important to continue to work on these areas. You will also need to build your skills using technical drawing software like Techsoft 2D Design and build your understanding of isometric, orthographic and perspective drawing. Videos explaining all of these can be found on YouTube.
