In this course, students will study engineering concepts, mechanical systems and mathematics with particular emphasis on space and the aeronautics industry. Practical skills such as drawing, design, electronics and workshop skills are also introduced throughout the two years.
The first year comprises mandatory units in health and safety and physics. These topics will be covered in much greater detail than at GCSE level. The second year optional units will be distributed between physics, mathematics, design and electronics to give a mix of classroom learning and practical experiments for students to be trained in all areas of engineering sciences.
Students will need a minimum of three grade 4s and three grade 5s at GCSE including a grade 4 in English and a grade 5 in Maths. They must also have two grade 4s in Combined Science or a grade 4 in Physics. Additional Information: We will consider 1 Vocational qualification in place of a GCSE as long as a grade 4 is achieved in English.
Don’t let the cost of studying put you off – most of our students study for FREE, and those who don’t qualify for funding are very often eligible for an Advanced Learner Loan.
Eligibility depends on both the course you have chosen to study and your individual circumstances.
