This practical course covers electronic and computer servicing. It is designed for careers in computer and Electronic Engineering. You will learn how a PC works and build one from components and upgrade/repair a PC. Plus you will learn core Electronic skills.
The Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Foundation Diploma in Engineering is intended to be an Applied General qualification for post-16 learners wanting to continue their education through applied learning and who aim to progress to higher education, and ultimately to employment, possibly in the engineering sector. The qualification is equivalent in size to 1.5 A levels and aims to provide a coherent introduction to study of the engineering sector. Learners need not necessarily have studied engineering previously, but will have successfully passed a level 2 programme of learning, with GCSEs in English and maths or vocational qualifications.
Engineering covers a broad variety of roles and it involves the application of scientific principles and practical knowledge to transform ideas and materials into products and systems safely and support them during their lifetime. This qualification has a focus on a broad range of engineering specialist areas. Learners taking this qualification will study mandatory content covering: engineering principles, delivery of engineering processes, product design and manufacture, commercial and quality principles. The content of this qualification has been developed in consultation with academics to ensure that it supports progression to higher education. In addition, employers and professional bodies have been involved and consulted in order to confirm that the content is appropriate and consistent with current practice for learners planning to enter employment directly in the engineering sector.
This course covers the basic knowledge and understanding of the principles and methods involved in Engineering and technology.
The qualification covers one mandatory unit:
Additionally, there are four optional units:
If you want to progress into employment in the engineering industry, we can train you to a standard of practical proficiency and give you the opportunity to acquire appropriate practical engineering skills and knowledge.
The EAL Level 2 Diploma in Performing Engineering Operations is made up of 3 mandatory units and 3 optional units.
The Engineering With Pathways B.Eng (Hons) top-up course, validated by The Open University, offers students who already have an engineering foundation degree the opportunity to continue their studies to obtain a bachelor’s degree.
This part-time course is designed to be completed whilst students are actively working in an engineering role. The vocational nature of the course, combined with contemporary theory around the most up-to-date techniques, provides students with skills they can apply directly to their role.
The course provides students with the option to specialise in their chosen field: electrical, mechanical, manufacturing, electronic engineering or automotive. Students will cover a broad range of engineering theory and practical techniques, covering the underpinning science and mathematics knowledge, analysis skills, creativity, design, material knowledge, management techniques, problem-solving skills and professional standards understanding required to operate as an Incorporated Engineer.

Timetables are usually available one month before registration. Please note, whilst we make every effort to ensure that timetables are integrated and are as convenient as possible for our students, scheduled teaching can take place on any day of the week. Part-time classes are normally scheduled on one or two days per week for student convenience.
You will be taught through a combination of lectures, workshops and meetings with your personal tutor:
When you are not attending lectures, workshops or other timetabled sessions, you will be expected to continue learning independently through self-study. Typically, this will involve reading journal articles and books, working on individual and group projects, undertaking research in the library, preparing coursework assignments and presentations, and preparing for examinations. Your independent learning will be supported by our excellent facilities, including the library and the learning zone.
Per week, you will typically have:
Over the course of each year, you will spend 73% of your time in timetabled teaching and learning activity:
