There is a great demand in industry for engineers that have a broad range of knowledge, covering both areas such as General (GE), Mechanical (ME), Electrical (EE) and Automotive (AE) Engineering disciplines.
Mechanical Engineering is concerned with the design, construction and operation of machines, structures and industrial plant used in a very wide range of industries. Electrical Engineering involves technology such as electrical generators, motors, and electronic systems such as microprocessors. Automotive investigates with engines, chassis, electrics and control. A list of units, pathways and order of units (up to 18 are studied are shown below
Each unit is further split into bite sized topics to make studying easier via our online Moodle education platform. You will be have 2 assessments for each unit. Prices exclude the Edexcel BTEC registration fee, and some units may require some tools / materials (click on individual units for material costs).
