Why study Engineering?

Engineering is a course that develops a wide range of skills that will stand you in good stead for the whole of your working life. Skills you will develop include project planning, problem solving, creativity, communication, teamwork, persistence, numeracy and computer skills. Engineers develop these skills that make them highly employable in lots of different sectors.

Course Overview

The course covers different aspects and fields of engineering, providing a broad experience and deep understanding of a variety of topics, including:

  • Engineering Principles – including advanced mathematics
  • Delivery of Engineering Processes Safely as a Team
  • Engineering Product Design and Manufacture
  • Computer Aided Design in Engineering.


Engineering apprentices earn almost double the national apprentice wage and starting salaries for engineering and technology graduates are around 20% higher than the average graduate starting salary*.  The engineering course is a BTEC and equivalent to 1 A Level. Students who complete the course can progress on to university, studying a specific engineering discipline, as well as gaining opportunities for employment and apprenticeships. There are many roles in this sector where recruitment is at graduate level. The qualification carries UCAS points and is recognised by higher education providers as meeting admission requirements to many relevant courses, for example:

  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Architecture
  • Automotive Engineering
  • Electrical and Electronic Engineering
  • Construction Management
  • Innovative Home Design and Construction
  • Construction and the Built Environment
  • Surveying
  • Many more!…

What subjects go well with Engineering?

Maths and Physics are always excellent subjects to go alongside Engineering. Other subjects could be considered depending on your career aspirations including Geography, I.T, Chemistry, Design and many more.

Entry requirements

Due to the advanced mathematics involved with unit 1 we would require students to have a 6 in maths GCSE when enrolling.
