Engineering – L3 Applied General

Single | Double

Special Entry Requirements

In addition to the level 3 Applied General entry requirements, you will need a minimum of grade 5 in GCSE Maths.

Course Introduction

The Applied General in Engineering offers a more practical and hands on approach than the traditional A Level route for engineering; although it can be taken alongside A Level Maths and Physics as well.

It is a good introduction to the principles of engineering and their application and will enable you to actively experience the engineering environment.

You will examine the engineering workplace both locally and nationally.
