Level 3 Cambridge Technicals in Engineering – Extended Diploma
OCR Exam Board
Learners will cover 18 topics; some are examined and some are tutor assessed. They take four mandatory units that will enable them to demonstrate their understanding of the underpinning mathematics and scientific principles of engineering, and the principles of mechanical and electrical/electronic engineering. Learners then choose 12 further units from a range of topics that have a more practical nature and will increase the depth and breadth of their skills and knowledge. These include electrical and electronic design, circuit simulation and manufacture, electrical devices and operations, automation and robotics, Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing (CAD and CAM), engineering and the environment, lean and quality, and materials science. They must take certain combinations of the units to lead to the awarding of a specific pathway. Equivalent to 3 A levels.
