The Level 3 Electrical/Electronic in Engineering is a two year course. This qualification is designed to provide a highly specialist, work-related qualifications in a range of vocational sectors. Many of the units have strong links to the knowledge and evidence requirements of the SEMTA National Occupational Standards and relevant NVQs at Level 3 and will provide students with opportunities for progression within and into employment. The qualifications have also been designed so that students can progress into Higher Education, for example to BTEC Higher Nationals and undergraduate engineering degree qualifications. This BTEC qualification in Engineering has been designed to provide a wide range of units so that students can focus on their chosen career or area of interest. The qualification provides opportunities for students who intend progressing into senior technician roles as well as for those who are not yet based in industry and wish to gain a sound understanding of engineering. Several of the core units are common across different engineering titles and provide students with the required underpinning knowledge of health and safety, mathematics, science, communications and project planning and implementation for success in the specialist units and the engineering workplace. The vocational focus of each qualification is provided through the specialist units. What will I study?
