Level 3 Diploma in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (Mechanical)
Course details may be subject to change
This practical BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (Development Technical Knowledge) Mechanical Pathway course is delivered over two years. It will provide you with the opportunity to study a range of topics within mechanical engineering, and develop your knowledge, understanding and skills in preparation for an apprenticeship.
You will be in college three days a week, and, in addition to lectures and tutorials delivered by the tutors, you will be expected to complete further study and assessments in your own time.
The course is made up of 11 units, within these units you will study a range of engineering principles, from materials to design. You will study the science and mathematics behind engineering applications. You will also complete a range of practical tasks, using our new state of the art engineering facilities.
This practical Advanced Manufacturing Engineering course aims to provide you with the fundamental principles of Engineering.
The course will enable you to gain knowledge and understanding of a wide range of mechanical engineering applications. On completion of the course, you can look to progress onto higher education, and it supports the new apprenticeship standards for engineering (further information on the new apprenticeship standards can be provided by the programme leader).
Modules Studied You will study the following modules:
Health and Safety in the Engineering Workplace
Mathematics for Engineering Technicians
Mechanical Principles of Engineering Systems
Engineering Drawing for Technicians
Electro, Pneumatic and Hydraulic Systems and Devices
Properties and Applications of Engineering Materials
Communications for Engineering Technicians
Further Mechanical Principles and Applications
Further Engineering Mathematics
Electrical and Electronic Principles in Engineering.
This course is classed as a BTEC specialist qualification and is part of the new engineering apprenticeship standard.
The course is designed to allow progression onto an engineering apprenticeship or onto higher education. For progression to university, the course carries a maximum weighting value of 96 UCAS points (this is based on achieving a Distinction at the end of the course).
