Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Engineering Technologies
An exciting programme that allows you to specialise in mechnical engineering or welding and fabrication, building your knowledge and skills in a practical setting.
Get your career in engineering off the ground with this course that will help progress you into roles such as maintenance engineer, mechanical engineer, design engineer and wedling or fabrication. This course offers the flexibility to choose optional modules allowing you to specialise in either mechnical engineering or welding and fabrication.
If you choose the fabrication and welding route you will use Metal Active Gas, Manual Metal Arc and Tungsten Inert Gas welding equipment. Students studying the mechanical engineering route will learn advanced technics when using the centre lathes, milling machines, drilling machines and hand tools, as well as equipment in the manufacture of precision components. Mechanical Engineering students will also gain an understanding of Computer Aided Design.
You could progress to study a higher education engineering course or mechanical engineering. Alternatively, you could secure an apprenticeship or employment, including an engineering career in the Armed Forces.
