You?? ll be introduced to key engineering principles such as design, materials, electronic systems, maintenance and manufacturing. You?? ll also get lots of practical experience. The Diploma focuses on three main themes: the engineered world - looks at the importance of engineering in the modern world and the impact engineering has on the way we live our lives discovering engineering technology - introduces basic engineering principles such as design, materials, electronics systems, maintenance and manufacturing engineering the future - looks at what makes innovations succeed, how new materials contribute to design and how to develop and launch new ideas. Additional and Specialist Learning (ASL) A Diploma in Engineering will give you the skills you need for either university or work, and is a first step towards a career in the sector. It could lead you to a university degree in aeronautical engineering, automotive engineering, building services engineering, manufacturing engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, mechanical engineering or biomedical materials science. However, the Diploma in Engineering doesn't mean you have to opt for a career in this sector. Because a Diploma teaches a mix of subjects, it will give you the skills that will be welcomed by colleges, universities and employers, and is an excellent starting point for other careers or study.
