Welcome to Engineering
Key Stage 4:
The Level 2 BTEC Award in Engineering course follows the Edexcel specification and endeavours to address today's skills gaps in the engineering sector by providing students with a range of underpinning skills and knowledge to meet the needs of modern engineering industries.
The Level 2 BTEC in Engineering consists of Three units 1, 2 and 7:
Unit 1: The Engineered World (Exam) - This unit will look at all aspects of Engineering such as aerospace, automotive, communications, electrical, mechanical, biomedical and chemical. It will also focus on skills that have been learnt through other units such as matching, forming, fabrication, casting and electrical.
Unit 2: Investigating an Engineering Project - This unit looks directly at the manufacturing of engineering products. Students will be expected to analyse materials through mechanical testing.
Unit 7: Machining Techniques - This unit will allow learners to select and use tools and work-holding devices for drilling and for turning or milling and make products using drilling and turning or milling techniques safely.
All units are presented with links to industry. The main purpose of this course is that students can clearly link their classroom learning to real life engineering trades, as well as developing skills which would be required for academic routes.
