Do you enjoy applying science and maths to real world problems? Are you interested in how things are made? If so, then you could have what it takes to succeed in the field of engineering.
By choosing this course, among other things, you can develop your skills with hand tools and learn how to operate machinery safely.
As a student you will have access to a whole range of equipment including centre lathes and vertical milling machines.
You will also work on strengthening your maths and science skills, as well as building and testing electronic circuits.
Engineering Level 2 Technical Diploma?
At Brock we give you industry-experienced teachers and first class facilities to help you get your engineering career off the ground.
You will learn in a helpful and friendly environment where you will receive all the support you need.
As a result, you can obtain a decent foundation for your future in the dynamic and rewarding field of engineering.
Teaching & learning
This programme is a 60/40 split between practical learning and theoretical learning. You will need to perform well in both areas in order to achieve success.
Approximately 60% of your time will be spent in the engineering workshop, learning how to use a range of engineering tools and equipment through various projects.
The remainder of your time will be spent in the classroom learning the basic principles and theories associated with engineering and manufacturing processes.
Minimum entry requirements

I chose Engineering because I recognised how engineers have changed the world for the better. A good engineer can overcome almost any problem – it’s like a superpower. I find analysing the properties of different materials particularly interesting. Also, Engineering skills are lifelong practical skills that can support you both at home and work. Recently, I did work experience using 3D printers. We also have 3D printers on campus, which is something not all colleges provide.Engineering Level 2 Technical Diploma
