Engineering and Manufacturing

Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Level 3

Course overview

Are you a natural problem solver who likes fixing things? Do you have a mechanical mind? Are you curious about how things work?

There is an ever-increasing need in the electrotechnical industry for highly skilled Technician Engineers, particularly for young men and women who are well trained and adaptable. This course aims to provide sound basic knowledge of electrics/electronics such that the Technician Engineer will be better equipped to meet the challenge of new technology in the 2000's, together with training in current techniques required by the industry.

Year 1:
Mathematics for Technicians
Electrical Applications
Communication for Technicians
Electrical and Electronic Principals
Business Systems for Technicians
Principles & Applications of Analogue Electronics

Year 2:
Engineering Project
Electronic Fault Finding
Electronic Circuit Manufacture
Electrical Installation
Electrical Technology

Entry requirements

A minimum of four GCSEs at grade A, B or C which should include mathematics, physics and either: English language or a subject demonstrating ability in the use of English language, or successful completion of a BTEC level 2 qualifications. Consideration will be given for previous appropriate attainments.

How will I be assessed?

An essential part of the work in both years will be a programme of assignments. All units are assessed continuously and by final examinations, and are subject to external moderation.

What can I do next

On completion of the course, you could progress on to courses such as HNC in Electronic Engineering, HNC in Electrical Engineering, Foundation Degree in Electronics & Control, and
Foundation Degree in Electrical Systems & Installation
