Engineering (Mechanical or Electronic Engineering) BTEC Level 3 90 credit Diploma at Bromley College of Further & Higher Education

Course description

This course will suit you if you prefer a practical approach rather than the more academic A Levels. It will give you a good grounding in maths and mechanical principles for HND and degree courses.

This is a post-GCSE course designed to give students a sound education and training in Mechanical Engineering. The course is a more practical alternative to AS/A2 levels and provides students with an enhanced introduction to HND/Degree courses in Engineering. 

Higher Education Institutions (Universities and Colleges) will accept the Extended Diploma as qualification for entry to a broad range of mechanical engineering courses at degree level.

As an alternative to continuing into Higher Education successful students will be well equipped to enter employment in the Engineering sector in design, test, maintenance and other support areas.
