Course description

BTEC First Certificate in Engineering Level 2:

What will I learn?

You will have a keen interest in problem solving, design and how things work. This is a fantastic course if you are keen on starting a career in Engineering.

You'll have the chance to study particular areas of Engineering in depth, including

- Working safely and effectively in Engineering
- Using and Interpreting Engineering Information
- Applied Electrical and Mechanical Science for Technicians;
- Mathematics for Engineering Technicians (Core).

The delivery of the course programme is underpinned by practical and theoretical subjects that provide an insight into a number of aspects within the field of Engineering.

How will I be taught?

Classoom theory sessions and assignments, plus workshop practical sessions.

How will I be assessed?

You will study in our industry-standard workshops and classrooms, including the Siemens Mechatronics Academy which opened in September 2014.

What can I do after this course?

You could move progress on to BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary and Extended Diplomas in Engineering, which we also offer at Barking & Dagenham College. You will study for the Subsidiary Diploma in year 1, before embarking on the Extended Diploma in year 2.

Due to the level of Maths ability needed on the BTEC Level 3 programmes, you will need to achieve a Merit or Distinction grade on the Level 2 course, and certainly in the Science and Maths units.
