Access to Professions in Engineering
This course is designed to develop a good understanding of engineering, plus develop practical and academic skills required for further HE study.
During this course you will be building on your existing skills and knowledge in science and mathematics to study physics, mathematics and engineering at an advanced level. You will study the basic theoretical aspects of physics
and engineering and apply them in practical laboratory experiments, problem solving, or research work from different online and printed sources. Additionally, you will further develop your skills and knowledge in mathematics to progress to HE.
In addition to the above, you will also study a number of core skills units which will enable you to develop the academic skills necessary for studying on the Access to HE course and beyond.
Upon successful completion of this course, you may progress to HE study in areas such as engineering, computing, physics, materials science and other academic courses.
You will be assessed through a variety of methods. These will include written assignments, tests, laboratory practical work and presentations. The assessments take place throughout the course.
To achieve this qualification you will need to gain 60 credits in total, a minimum of 45 credits at Level 3 which will be graded and 15 credits which
will be ungraded. You will study a total of 60 credits including 45
graded credits and 15 ungraded credits. The 45 graded credits will be divided into physics, mathematics and engineering. The 15 graded credits will come from a range of developmental units involving communication and research
