Engineering is an ideal pathway if you have an interest in Physics, but want a much stronger practical basis than in traditional A Levels. You will learn about how electrical, electronic and mechanical systems work, apply engineering theory to real-life examples and tackle problem solving challenges. 

It will provide you with opportunities to develop sound practical engineering investigation, design, construction, and testing skills which are critical to being a proficient engineer.

The diploma is designed as specialist qualification for students who have a clear view of their future career or are seeking progression to Higher Education. It is equivalent to 1 A Level and is highly valued by universities, further education colleges and employers alike.



- Materials technology and science

This unit develops your understanding of the materials used in engineering products and the scientific principles engineers use to identify which materials are the most suitable.

- Mechanical systems

The purpose of this unit is to give you a practical understanding of mechanical systems. This includes different types of mechanical systems and their typical applications, how these systems are designed, and how they and their component parts function.

- Engineering design

You will develop an understanding of the engineering design process, using industry standard tools and techniques to deliver an engineering design from start to finish.

- Production and manufacturing

The purpose of this unit is to provide you with an understanding of the range of manufacturing processes and systems relevant to the production of multiple components. You will develop a production plan, schedule the production and work as part of a team to manufacture the batch of products.

How will it be delivered?

Internal and external assessment comprising of practical work and written examinations.

Entry requirements

Students need to have five or more GCSEs at grade 4 or above. This must include a grade 5 or above in Maths. Studying electronics, resistant materials, engineering or similar at GCSE is preferable.
