In this course students will learn to create solutions to everyday problems. This course will introduce students to a range of engineering principles. Engineering Science is a study of the roles of engineers in society, and of the knowledge and skills modern engineers are likely to have.
The course is split into three main areas:
- Engineering Contexts and Challenges
- Electronics and Control
- Structures and Materials
Throughout the year, students will develop a range of theoretical knowledge and practical skills, to be able to plan, design, build and evaluate solutions to engineering problems.
Students will learn how to use a range of simulation software and equipment.
- Engineering Science is recommended as a pupil choice along with Mathematics, Physics and/or Computing Science – it should not be seen as a replacement for other science subjects.
- Strong skills in Mathematics are required to succeed in Engineering Science.
- Meeting deadlines and being resilient are important features of being successful in this course.
