Students studying engineering will understand how to apply theory and practice and be able to make informed decisions about their future. The qualification introduces students to some of the key themes of Engineering and gives them an understanding of basic Engineering principles.

The Diploma and BTEC:

Students also develop a good standard of English, Maths and information communication technology, as well as other skills such as teamwork and self-management.

Students at The Highcrest Academy can expect to produce several practical projects in a range of resistant materials. One example is a steel tool box which helps students to develop accuracy in marking out, cutting and assembly.
