RQF Pearson BTEC Level 5 Higher National Diploma in Engineering (Mechanical Engineering)
Take steps towards your future career in engineering with this Level 5 programme from East Durham College!
At Level 5, this course offers students seven individual pathways, allowing you to focus on a specific area of engineering that you are interested in.
These pathways are as follows:
Electrical and Electronic
Embedded Electronic Systems
No matter what specialism you choose as part of this course, you’ll learn the core knowledge, skills and techniques that all engineers require, ensuring you’ll be able to deliver high performance in the engineering profession when you’re done.
The course focuses on building up your specialist knowledge, skills and techniques so you can move into a range of careers in engineering at Technician or Engineer level.
Fault finding plays a large role in the course – helping you to solve problems in a timely, professional manner. You will also learn to reflect on your work, contributing to the development of the process and the environment you operate within.
Engineers play a vital role in our society, so this Level 5 course also focuses on developing your knowledge in this area, helping you to work with integrity, take into regard the cost of the work you’re undertaking, how to complete sustainable engineering projects and how to keep up with the rapid rate of change experienced in world class engineering.
With this course, you’ll be in an excellent position to enter, or progress in employment within the engineering sector. Alternatively, you may wish to progress onto university where you can study a wide range of degrees or in closely-related areas.
Finally, students taking this course are working towards achieving internationally recognised registration with a Professional Body regulated by the Engineering Council.
To understand the responsibilities of the engineer within society, and work with integrity, regard for cost, sustainability and the rapid rate of change experienced in world class engineering.
To provide opportunities for students to enter, or progress in, employment within the engineering sector, or progress to higher education qualifications such as degrees and honours degree in engineering or a closely related area, by balancing employability skills with academic attainment.
