Course description

Foundation Certificate in Science and Engineering:

Science and Engineering cover a huge array of study areas, from the design of advanced machinery to biological engineering. However, they both require a solid foundation of scientific knowledge and technical skills. This course will prepare you for degree-level study in these fascinating areas, as well as for a successful career. During your pathway course, you’ll also work on developing your online personal portfolio and practical skills, giving you a truly well-rounded experience.

Personal development activities

Culture and activities - We’ll help you to have a hugely beneficial cultural and social experience, and encourage you to explore different activities, sports, crafts and more. You might learn about local history and culture, or develop your wider subject knowledge and understanding of related industries.

Digital and employability skills - Outside of your academic learning, you’ll also be taught skills that will be useful at university and later in life. You’ll receive help in making the most of your creativity, improving your communication and developing your digital skills. We’ll also help you build a CV, portfolio and online profile to empower you after you graduate.

Social network - Forming a strong social network can be very beneficial, even if it’s just to discuss and debate ideas. Not only will you get to know your classmates, you’ll also have opportunities to join professional bodies, and network with students and industry professionals: something that can be really helpful when you go on to start a career.
