L3 Extended Certificate Engineering

Delivered over two years, this Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma will provide students with both practical and theoretical skills to develop a career in the engineering sector.

Each unit focuses on key elements of industry that will give students an insight into what might be expected of them as an engineer.

Why study Engineering?

Study Engineering and start the journey to becoming a highly skilled engineer who will be able to work within a variety of engineering disciplines such as: product design, aerospace, manufacturing, electrical, nuclear and energy, environment or transport.

To study at Cowley Sixth Form College, you must have achieved a minimum of five GCSEs or equivalent, graded 9 – 4, across four separate subjects, including GCSE Mathematics and English Language.

In addition, a positive college interview is required.

In addition, a grade 5 or above in Mathematics and a grade 5 or above in Science is required.

Engineering is assessed through a combination of practical internal assessment and an external examination (using mathematical techniques, electronic and mechanical principles to solve engineering problems).

There are two primary progression routes from the Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma:
• Specialised university degree
• Apprenticeship

Both routes have their individual advantages, but share one main outcome, the promise of a prosperous career in an industry that has been the backbone of the United Kingdom for decades.

I chose to study Engineering because it involves Maths and Physics which I enjoy, and I would like to do Engineering as a career.

I have enjoyed manufacturing parts in the workshop, and the more practical parts of the course.
