This unit enables learners to build on knowledge gained at GCSE or BTEC First Diploma level and use it in a more practical context for their chosen discipline. It will develop your knowledge of algebraic techniques,  trigonometry,  statistical data analyses and an introduction to calculus.

On completion of this unit you should:

1 Be able to use algebraic methods

2 Be able to use trigonometric methods and standard formulae to determine areas and volumes

3 Be able to use statistical methods to display data

4 Be able to use elementary calculus techniques.

This unit forms a key component within many learning programmes since the content is highly applicable to many manufacturing, engineering and industrial situations.

    Hello, I have done 2 awards, Electrical and Electronic Principles,And Mathematics for Engineering Technicians,If I was to do the Health and Safety in the engineering workplace award would this get me the Btec level 3 certificate in Electrical Engineering ? Thanks.

      If we have evidence of completing the 2 Awards successfully along with their grades from an accredited BTEC centre, then yes you would be able to upgrade to a BTEC certificate by upgrading the mandatory unit – Health & safety

    Hi, just wondering what kind of support will be given throughout course? I have not been in education for 7 years, i am worried In case the course is to challenging and I waste a substantial amount of money. I am looking to do 6-unit level 3 mechanical engineering course.

      There is 14 day money back guarantee, also you can reduce your risk with a deposit and direct debit arrangement
      You will be assigned a tutor for each unit, who can be contacted by Skype or email. There is also Skype chat at the end of each unit and an induction chart at the start of the course

    I took an ONC in electrical and electronic principles back in 1994. I came away with a record of achievement but not the full ONC. The units I passed are as follows: Engineering Applications of computers, industry, and society, electronics, microelectronic systems, common skills A and B.

    Is it possible I could take individual units to top up to the full certificate and if so which ones?

    • admin says:

      Your ONC which was over 25 years ago, is no long provided as a course and has been replaced by the 12 unit BTEC diploma. None of your units passed now exist, so cant be credited against the new qualification, however your past knowledge should make it easier and quicker for you to complete a BTEC level 3 qualification

  5. Oliver says:

    Wondering could studying a couple of these 1 unit awards allow me to Taylor my qualification to get a certificate in engineering?

    • admin says:

      Yes you can start with 1 unit and add more to gain accredited BTEC qualifications.
