Engineering Level 3 Cambridge Technical Extended Certificate at Hereford Sixth Form College

Course description

Engineering is a vocational course that helps prepare you for either a degree in Engineering or moving straight into the workplace.

Course content

This course focuses on two areas of Engineering: mechanical and electrical.

Machines are made up of components and mechanisms working in combination. Engineers need to understand the principles that govern the behaviour of these components and how they are applied. Electrical systems and electronic devices are present in almost every aspect of modern life and it is engineers who design, test and produce these systems.

This course helps you develop your Mathematical and Scientific knowledge and skills so that you can begin to understand these processes.

You will study modules on:

  • Mathematics.
  • Science.
  • Mechanical Engineering.
  • Electrical and Electronic Engineering.

Approximately two-thirds of the course is assessed by examination in January and June of the first and second year. The final third is internally assessed.

Entry requirements

You need to be interested in Mathematics and Science.

Future opportunities

This course can lead you into higher education, such as a degree or a foundation degree in Engineering, or into an apprenticeship or employment.
