What will I study?

Students will develop an understanding of a broad range of issues relevant to the sector, including:

• working within the Engineering and Manufacturing Sectors – an understanding of how materials, conditions and context influence design processes and products • essential mathematics for engineering and manufacturing – a knowledge and understanding of mathematics including standard matrices and determinants and standard trigonometry • materials and their properties – understanding material processing techniques and their effects on materials and material quality, the condition of materials, how these are managed, and materials testing methods and techniques • business, commercial and financial awareness - basic commercial principles including commercial priorities and markets, customers/clients/partners and resource allocation

Learners undertaking the Mechanical engineering specialism will be able to: • Analyse and interpret engineering and manufacturing requirements, systems, processes, technical drawings and specifications. • Evaluate systems, designs, components and processes, managing and integrating design information, proposals and specifications, to develop and improve mechanical engineering and manufacturing proposals and solutions. • Propose and design mechanical engineering and manufacturing systems, products, components, processes and solutions, considering requirements, constraints and context. • Collaborate to help manage, develop, test and quality assure mechanical engineering and manufacturing design information, systems, processes and outcomes. • Communicate proposals, design information and solutions, producing, recording and explaining engineering and manufacturing representations, systems, processes, outcomes, specifications and technical drawings.

What previous qualifications or experience do I need?

Minimum five grade 4-9 at GCSE or successful completion of the Level 2 course, and English and/or maths at grade 4.
