Engineering Apprenticeship Advanced at Brockenhurst College

Course description

Engineers are fascinated by questions relating to how and why things work. They use their training in mathematics and science to understand the world around them and to design products and systems, solve problems and benefit society.

They will usually become involved in some aspects of testing, maintenance, design or manufacture. They are self-motivated and resourceful, and learn to communicate effectively and work well as part of a team.

Engineers characteristically have high levels of job satisfaction as well as good levels of pay.

This Apprenticeship training will equip you for the exciting and diverse world of engineering. It will build on the mathematics and science you have already studied and develop new knowledge/skills in areas such as engineering materials, manufacturing, milling and turning, CAD project management.

Course content

Units will typically be chosen from :

Mechanical Engineering:

Apprentices who are working in an area of manufacture, especially in areas of milling and turning. We also do CAD for future development in CNC manufacture.

  • Milling
  • Turning
  • CAD
  • Technical Support:

    Apprentices who are working in an area of support in an engineering company, design office, R & D, quality or direct dealing with customer requirements.
    • CAD
    • Project Plans
