We all use engineering every day and it is essential to the smooth running of the country. Engineering includes all of the systems the UK uses to work effectively including transport systems, communication networks, power supplies, and water systems. 

The Level 3 BTEC National Extended Diploma in Engineering will develop your skills and knowledge in a wide range of pathways that will prepare you for further study and an exciting career in engineering. 

You will acquire the Maths and Engineering principles required to excel in Power, Electrical Distribution, Electronics, Design, and Civil Engineering. 

This course is a study programme which consists of:

  • A vocational qualification

  • Work experience

  • Tutorials

  • English and Maths

You will complete a broad range of units including: 

  • Engineering Principles 
  • The Delivery of Engineering Processes Safely as a Team 
  • Engineering Product Design and Manufacture 
  • Applied Commercial and Quality Principles in Engineering 
  • Microcontroller Systems for Engineers
