BTEC Foundation Diploma in Engineering Level 3
This course is all about the role engineering plays in design and manufacturing. It’s perfect if you’re fascinated by how things are made and want to progress into design engineering or production. You’ll develop skills in essential engineering concepts, including mechanics, design, drawing and manufacturing.
There’s a heavy focus on practical learning – you’ll be working on assignments that include CNC programming, mechanical principles, and CAD design. Everything you do is about gaining practical experience with industry standard equipment that you will use during your engineering career. You’ll have access to the latest technology, such as CNC machinery, 3D printers, and CAD/CAM software.
All of this is taught by experienced engineers in worldclass facilities, with our £17 million Hi Tech and Digital Centre.
