What is it like to study this course and how will I be assessed?
This course offers students with a passion for Aeronautical Engineering the opportunity to study a Level 3 qualification which could lead to employment or further study at University level. With shared resource links to the Flybe Aeronautical academy, students will get the opportunity to also learn about practical skills as an additionality to the course and have the chance of summer work experience on successful completion of the programme. The college week will be spent at the new Technology Centre where you will have access to the very latest in engineering resource covering electronics, CAD and virtual learning materials. Students will also have opportunities to visit sites specific to the aviation industry.
The course consists of ten units, two of which are externally assessed through online test, the remaining eight are assessed through written assignment completion.
