Level 3 in Manufacturing Engineering

This qualification provides a broad basis of study for the engineering sector.

What Will I Learn?

The BTEC route would follow the Level 3 National Extended Certificate in Engineering (RQF). This would mean that there are both external and internal assessments.

The BTEC units include:
• Engineering Principles
• Delivery of Engineering Processes Safely as a Team
• Engineering Product Design
• Computer Aided Design in Engineering

Entry Requirements

You must show evidence that you have achieved a minimum of five A* - C grade GCSEs that must include the subjects of English, Maths and Science.

Alternatively, other appropriate level 2 qualifications will be considered providing the units achieved suitably prepare you for this level 3 programme.

At Coleg y Cymoedd we would encourage you to do the very best that you can in your assessments. The better your grades the more options you will have and may result in you gaining entry onto a higher-level course.


Assessment is specifically designed to fit the purpose and objective of the qualification. It includes a range of assessment types and styles suited to vocational qualifications in the sector. There are three main forms of assessment that you need to be aware of: external, internal and synoptic.

Career Progression

On successful completion of this course previous learners have progressed into careers in many engineering disciplines. Many learners progress onto the BTEC level 3 Diploma in Manufacturing Engineering. There is a clear route through to incorporated and chartered status. BTEC Diplomas are valued by employers and higher education institutions.
