Course Information for Students

The city of Derby and the surrounding area is world renowned for its engineering and manufacturing industry and is populated with world leading employers and their high quality supply chains.

The engineering sector is also still growing at a considerable rate, particularly with the development of new technologies which in turn has led to skill shortages and demand for high performing engineers.

Using the latest suite of qualifications, the one-year part-time BTEC Award in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering has been designed to support  adults who wish to further their development as engineers, leading to a highly rewarding and well-paid career in this sector. The course can also be taken as part of a career enhancement route.

Prior achievement of the following GCSEs and grades is necessary:

  • English 4/C
  • Maths 4/C
  • Science 4/C

For adults wishing for career advancement or change, prior achievement of an Engineering qualification at Level 2, or relevant work experience, will be required. Alternatively, they will need evidence of studying related vocational qualifications at Levels 2/3.

To achieve the BTEC Award in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering, students must complete three mandatory units and at least two optional units. The mandatory units are:

  • Health and Safety in the Workplace
  • Communications for Engineering Technicians
  • Mathematics for Technicians

Optional units available include:

  • Further Engineering Mathematics
  • Electro, Pneumatic and Hydraulic Systems and Devices
  • Engineering Drawing
  • Principles and Applications of Electronic Devices and Circuits
  • Computer Aided Drafting
  • Autonomous Systems
  • Engineering Project

This course will be delivered on-site.

In addition to regular writing materials and a scientific calculator, specific PPE may need to be purchased for selected activities.

You will be assessed by a variety of methods including:

  • Written assignments
  • Practical assessments
  • Presentations
  • Industry project

On successful achievement of the Award in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering – and if you meet the relevant university entry criteria – you could progress to a full-time course in Higher Education (such as a Foundation Degree or HNC/D.)

Alternatively, and with employment in a qualifying role, an apprenticeship in Engineering or career as an engineering technician would be possible: this qualification can be used as credits/evidence towards the apprenticeship knowledge elements.
