This school-age CoVID generation, who've absorbed lockdowns, school closures & tragedy, mirror the evacuated generation from 1939. Their experiences created a postwar generation of inventors, musicians, designers, politicians who'd look beyond obvious to create extraordinary.

Engineering Level 3

Course content

Students choose one of two pathways equivalent to either one (Foundation Technical Level) or two A-Levels (Technical Level). All students will study units on materials science, mechanical systems design, production and manufacture. Those choosing the two A-Level equivalence will also investigate mathematics for engineers, advanced design and visualisation for manufacture and learn about what it takes to be a project manager in an engineering setting.

Assessment

For the full technical level, 3 out of the 8 units will be externally assessed, while 2 of the four units for the Foundation Technical Level will be externally assessed. This assessment will either be through an exam, or through an externally set activity. The remainder of the units will be assessed internally through research, project and practical skills. All units are equally weighted.

What is engineering all about?

Engineers are the backbone of many industries including design and manufacturing, building and architectural, healthcare, military and service. This course builds on the knowledge gained in GCSE Engineering and Design courses to help students prepare for working in the engineering field. You will develop your understanding of how to design and manufacture products and services to solve problems and to enrich people’s lives.

This course emphasises the importance of high quality design and manufacture, builds understanding of materials science and mathematics used by engineers on a daily basis and supports students to further develop their computer design and visualisation skills.

Support from industry is a key component of this course and students will have the opportunity to work alongside sponsors including Raytheon, GSK, Gratnells Engineering and Harlow group.

Future careers linked to this subject

There are millions of engineering jobs across the world in a huge range of sectors. Students can continue their studies at University, through an Apprenticeship or through work.

Entry requirements

Students should have achieved a Level 5 in Design Technology or Engineering, as well as 5’s in Mathematics and Science.
