Engineering, Manufacturing and Electronics Diploma Level 2

This course is all about mastering the essential skills that you’ll need during your engineering career, giving you experience with the very latest technology that is used within the industry. The focus is on developing your knowledge application, experimental and practical engineering techniques. Whilst preparing you to professionally present your findings and demonstrate these essential skills.

You’ll be taught in a reallife manufacturing workshop, design suites and programming labs, learning from highly skilled engineers. The Level 2 course is the perfect opportunity to discover the area of engineering you would like to specialise in, with tutors who will guide you through all of the potential opportunities. This course builds on your engineering skills, introducing more advanced subjects, including electronic systems, CNC programming, and 3D printing. We use state-of-the-art equipment and technology, so you’ll be using the same tools and skills that are used in the industry today.

All of this is delivered from our leading engineering facilities, with our £17 million Hi Tech and Digital Centre. At South Devon College we have enthusiastic and highly skilled engineering tutors who are fully committed to helping you develop the skills, knowledge and experience needed to becoming a fully qualified engineer.

Successful completion of this course provides you with essential skills to progress onto the Level 3 Advanced Technology course or the Level 3 90 Credit Diploma in Engineering.

"I chose to study an engineering focused degree because there is so much to learn. The tutors are great and have so much industry knowledge which they share with you. The staff are really helpful if you need guidance. My apprenticeship is with Spirent Communications and I won 'Apprentice of the Year' in 2015 at the Apprenticeship Awards, which I'm really proud of."Sophie Westerman
