Course Overview

Students will develop an understanding of the engineering industry and the sector and will cover the core topics for Design and Development Engineering of:

  • Customer and client requirements
  • Principles of design
  • Design processes
  • Communication in design

Students will also study the standalone specialism of:

  • Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Through studying the core topics for Design and Development Engineering, learners will develop knowledge and understanding of, and skills in:

  • Knowledge of working within the engineering and manufacturing sectors and the professional responsibilities, attitudes, and behaviours required to do so
  • Knowledge of the essential mathematics and science for engineering and manufacturing
  • Knowledge of mechanical, electrical and mechatronic principles
  • Knowledge of health and safety principles
  • An understanding of the business management required within the sector to provide a product or service with success
  • Skills in project management and delivery of a project

Further Core Skills learners will be able to develop are:

  • Planning and preparation
  • Interpreting and confirming project requirements
  • Planning and scoping project parameters (e.g. timescales, resources, costs)
  • Developing project plans
  • Communication
  • Interpreting, using and producing engineering representations and drawings following graphical language and industry conventions
  • Interpreting and using technical information and media
  • Communicating with technical and non-technical audiences using technology
  • Developing proposals and
  • Designing proposals to meet set requirements
  • Developing, modelling and revising concepts
  • Evaluation
  • Carrying out tests, evaluation and analysis
  • Evaluating how well project requirements have been met

In addition, through the standalone specialism of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, learners will develop their knowledge and understanding of, and skills in:

  • Knowledge of design methodologies and processes
  • Knowledge of the tools, equipment and materials used in electrical and electronic engineering
  • Knowledge of representations, symbols, conventions, and annotations used in electrical and electronic engineering
  • Skills in producing electrical and electronic drawings and representations
  • Skills in designing and developing working models
  • Skills in testing models and prototypes

Work Placement

Include 9 weeks minimum working with an employer on an industry placement
