Engineering Diploma Level 3 (Electrical/Electronic Engineering)

You will learn by completing projects and assignments that are based on realistic workplace situations, activities and demands. You will have the opportunity to study both Mechanical and Electrical/Electronic Engineering as the modern workplace requires you to have an understanding of both of these areas. You will then have a grounding in general engineering which means you will then be able to make an informed choice about which specialist path you want to follow in any further study.
